  2. 2. If your backyard is nothing more than an empty patch of grass, you’re not using it to its full potential. With a few enhancements, it can be a gathering space for friends and family, a playground for kids, or a private place to relax and recharge. Your backyard can be so much more than what it is now, and adding some new features can improve the value of your property. The following slides contain some backyard ideas that can bring life to your property. Introduction
  3. 3. A deck or patio can be the focal point of your backyard, providing a great space for you to entertain guests or just kick back and relax on your own. Whether you build a deck, pour concrete or lay bricks, having a deck or patio gives you an outdoor space that’s perfect for outdoor furniture and a grill. Build A Patio Or Deck
  4. 4. Backyard landscaping gives you a great way to take full advantage of spending time outside. Flowers, decorative trees and shrubs lend beauty to your surroundings. They can create a private space where you can unwind and escape from the outside world and all of its distractions. Growing a vegetable garden can be a family activity in addition to providing homegrown veggies for your menu. Plant A Garden
  5. 5. Few things are as relaxing as laying in a porch swing or hammock, swaying back and forth in the fresh air. A swing makes a great addition to patio furniture, and a hammock represents an affordable yet rewarding way to create a quiet space for relaxation. Purchasing a base for your hammock gives you the flexibility to place it anywhere in your yard. Add A Swing Or Hammock
  6. 6. One of the best aspects about having a backyard is that it gives your children a safe place to play. You can maximize that by building a playground area, even if it’s as simple as a sandbox. Modern playground equipment includes features such as climbing walls, offering kids a perfect place to be active and expend energy. Build A Playground
  7. 7. Building a fire pit means you can continue to enjoy your backyard even after the sun goes down and the weather gets a little chillier. Kids love roasting marshmallows over an open fire, and a fire pit also makes a great gathering spot for conversation with family and friends. Add A Fire Pit
  8. 8. The sound of gently running water immediately evokes peaceful feelings. Bring that to your backyard by adding a fountain or even a small pond. Backyard fountains come in many styles to fit virtually any form or function you need. Build Water Features
  9. 9. Outdoor lights don’t have to be just for Christmas. Strings of tasteful outdoor lights can add some class and style to your backyard, as well as make it possible to spend time there in the evenings. Use Outdoor Lighting
  10. 10. If you have the desire and the resources, a swimming pool is the ultimate backyard enhancement. There’s no better way to get relief from the summertime heat than taking a quick dip in your own pool. If you want, you could host a pool party every weekend. Build A Pool
  11. 11. A barbecue is the quintessential backyard activity, so adding a grill is a surefire way to boost the appeal of your yard. Whether you go with charcoal or gas, build a permanent backyard kitchen, or just wheel the grill out from the shed, a backyard grill makes a great addition to any home. Buy A Grill
  12. 12. A fence can serve multiple purposes in your backyard. Not only can it protect your privacy and keep children and pets from getting too far away from the house, but it can be a decorative element, as well. Flowers and climbing vines can enhance and beautify a fence, and a stone wall can be a beautiful sight in its own right. Build A Fence
