Backyards are all about personal enjoyment.

Your backyard should always cater to your needs and wants. Regardless if you like to relax and unwind in the beauty of nature, or if you want to throw the best backyard party of the year – you can create a backyard that enables you to do so.

Here are the five best ways to create a backyard that acts as your own personal outdoor oasis.

1. Install an Above-Ground Pool or Hot Tub

Give your backyard a focal point. An above-ground swimming pool or Sundance® Spa can give your backyard meaning, and an excuse to gather your family and friends.

If you’re looking to create a backyard that’s geared towards stress relief and relaxation, a hot tub might be right up your alley. The addition of a hot tub can provide you and your family with a wide variety of benefits.

The health benefits can range from improved aches and pains, to arthritis relief, and more. All you have to do is sit back and relax, as the healing properties of the jet-infused water works wonders on your body and mind.

On the other hand, a swimming pool can give your backyard the party atmosphere you’ve always wanted. Especially in the summer, many of your friends and family will be itching to go for a swim. This provides you with the opportunity to spend quality time with them, while benefiting from the exercise and recreation that a pool provides.

2. Include Fun Accessories

Make your backyard enjoyable for everyone! The right accessories can act as the finishing touches for any outdoor oasis. Seating options and different pieces of patio furniture are arguably some of the most important backyard accessories.

They can provide you and your guests with a place to lounge, eat, or spend time together. Especially for those who aren’t inside the pool or spa.

Some other accessories you may want to consider include:

  • Fire pit
  • BBQ
  • Water features
  • Flower planters and hanging baskets
  • Storage areas

Even the addition of larger accessories can intertwine perfectly within your backyard. For example, a gazebo can help divide your backyard into sections, provide shade from the sun, or help create a more functional backyard in general.

3. Functionality and Safety

A safe backyard is a happy backyard.

By creating a functional backyard, you can help ensure the safety of you, your family, and your guests. Adding exterior lighting options can help enhance safety at night. This can help you and your loved ones navigate through your backyard once the sun sets. Especially if you plan on using a hot tub at night. If done correctly, it can even provide your backyard with a welcoming and enjoyable ambiance.

Keep safety items nearby, especially if you own a swimming pool. Items such as flotation devices, rope, and a first aid kit can help prevent a bad situation from getting any worse. You may even want to consider installing a landline telephone outside if you have a shed or enclosed area near your pool.

For decks, you should always have stairs safely installed with reliable handrails. Patios and walkways can also help residents and guests navigate through the backyard safely. For hot tubs, you should probably consider installing a cover, lift, and steps for added protection and usability.

4. The Perfect Landscape Project

The right landscape design can really enhance your backyard paradise. The aesthetic appeal can be greatly improved with the addition of healthy grass and beautiful flower gardens.

If you love nature, you can purposely plant wildflowers that attract bees, hummingbirds and butterflies. If you’re an avid bird watcher, you can turn your landscape into a bird sanctuary by installing birdbaths, feeders and shrubs.

If it’s functionality you prefer, you can add walkways and patios for added depth and less maintenance.

Your landscape should always be built according to the placement of your pool or hot tub.
