With quarantine having been in effect for nearly a year now, it’s not uncommon to feel like your house is more akin to a prison than a home. However, you need not look further than your backyard as a way to enjoy the outdoors and escape your home in a way that’s safe and personalized to your preferences. Let’s take a look at some of the ways to get the most out of your backyard for the rest of quarantine and even afterward as a long-term investment.

Firepits and Patios

Firepits are a fun installation that provides a warm and comfortable focal point for gatherings. Your family can gather around the fire and enjoy its warmth as the weather cools down, making for a cozy atmosphere.

A patio compliments your firepit as it makes setting up chairs and tables around the pit much easier, and it gives a smart and cleaner appearance that will add value to your home while decreasing lawn maintenance.

Structures and Decks

Building structures like pergolas make for a simple but welcoming sanctuary that you could set up a garden couch and table in for a lovely outdoor living room sort of experience.

Another structure you could build might be a backyard studio – a standalone building that would still put you indoors but allows a degree of separation from your home and a space to personalize to your hobbies and interests. Otherwise, a deck is never a bad idea to increase your living space and create an ideal outdoor dining space for barbecues.

Playsets and Clubhouses

If you have kids, you might be looking for ways to get them out of the house and expel pent-up energy. This makes a backyard playset ideal to give your kids a personal playground and entice them to go outside.

After all, what better way to get the most out of your backyard than letting energetic kids play all over it? Other options include treehouses or a clubhouse that will offer your kids their own sense of sanctuary as a space they can make their own and escape to if you feel you need a bit of space and time to yourself.

Pools and Hot Tubs

Pools are an excellent installation to any backyard so that you can enjoy the waterside without having to go to public pools or beaches. Not to mention, swimming is a great way to give yourself or your kids some fantastic cardio exercise or a place to relax.

Though the weather may currently be cooling down, you can make use of the winter months to build and prepare a home pool for the summer months. Alternatively, a hot tub is a wonderful, therapeutic luxury usable at any time of the year and is far more compact than a pool.
