Tips for Backyard Enhancements You May Not Have Considered Before
Only Arizona residents can understand the excitement we feel knowing summer is soon coming to an end (hopefully!). Soon begins the most beautiful time of the year where the weather couldn’t be better for spending your days outside. It’s time to consider making your yard an entertaining gathering spot for all of your friends and family to spend time with you outdoors! Here are a few backyard enhancements you may not have considered before:
Since beautiful Arizona has an extended swimming season, why not take advantage in your own pool? Add a swim-up bar! There are many ways to do this to make it a perfect fit in your own backyard. You can also add a covered patio that will shade the bar/dining area for those who aren’t cooling off in the pool. Nothing is more unforgiving than the Arizona sun, so if the patio shade isn’t enough, consider adding misters! This new addition can also be used in the non-swimming months by having your guests gather around the walk-up side of the bar.
Pergola with BBQ/Dining
Covered patios are pretty standard here in Arizona. But you typically find them attached to the house. Why not do something custom, like a pergola, and create a space detached from the house in an open area of your yard that could use a bit more shade. This space can be great for dining, lounging, outdoor bar, and even a great area for a beautiful stone fireplace with plenty of seating. This will be a feature you can use for a large party of guests, a small gathering, or even just weeknight dinner with your family.
Lounge Area with Outdoor Television
Imagine inviting your friends and family over to watch the game in your beautiful outdoor space with a huge TV mounted on the wall! People can toss a ball around, eat and lounge around all while enjoying the game. Don’t have the space to do this in your yard? That’s fine, consider updating your house to have expanding doors. This way you can open your home to have more entertaining space. By enhancing your back patio to become an entertainment and lounge space, you will find yourself making excuses to have people over just to use it.
