3 Ways to Enjoy Your Backyard This Summer

Aug 27, 2019

Summer is in full force! Here in Texas, that means braving the heat so that we can get the most out of our longer days with family and friends. The best Summer memories are made when you are kicking it back outside with good company, a great view, and an even better playlist! Here are a few tips to make your backyard the go-to memory-making destination this Summer.

1. When we say Texas is hot, we mean HOT!

What is your neighborhood’s best resource in the summer? The pool! Skip the chaos and go for a backyard pool. A pool can be enjoyed by everyone- at any time of the day! Swim some laps for a morning workout, dive in to cool off after your afternoon chores, or lounge around in the evening for a relaxing wind-down.

2. Let’s get cookin’!

Whether your kids have been swimming in the pool, jumping on the trampoline, or biking around the neighborhood- they’re all coming home hungry! A backyard kitchen is a timeless solution to your crazy late-night dinners in the Summer. Having access to a grill and countertop outdoors makes for a relaxed and enjoyable cooking experience. You can simultaneously have an eye on the kids, keep up with the adult conversation, and get dinner served hot off the grill for everyone to enjoy.

3. Sit back & Relax

When you put time, effort, and consideration into an outdoor living area – IT PAYS OFF! A few additions can make for a cool and comfortable area to hang out in. First and foremost, make it covered! And to add to that, install a ceiling fan… or four. Set the ambiance and find a spot for a fireplace. It won’t always be 100 degrees outside, plus the evenings bring a nice, cool breeze. Adding a fireplace gives everyone a spot to gather around. And who said you can’t make smores in the fireplace?!

Whether it’s watching the game or cooking for the family that you enjoy, there’s something about being outdoors that turns those moments from typical routine to memorable experiences. You don’t have to plan destination vacations when the best times to be had are right outside your back door!
