The Essentials for a Relaxing Backyard
Design an area where you and the children can relax and take time to talk or read. This pretty arbor seat is ideal, and offers a cool, shady spot from which to enjoy the sights and sounds of the yard.
This vibrant yellow outdoor fireplace creates a wonderful focal point and warm homely atmosphere for evening gatherings, while also lending the garden a bold, contemporary look.
A hammock may well be the perfect place to unwind alone with a book in a shady part of the yard, but there is no denying that it can also be a lot of fun, doubling as an impromptu piece of play equipment. It will be popular with every member of the family.
No back yard would be complete without somewhere to cook outdoors. A brick-built barbeque in a corner of a patio that is always there, ready to be fired up, will get more use than one that needs to be brought out from storage each time you want to use it.
