Tips for a Backyard Oasis

With the weather warming up, we know everyone is eager to spend time outside! Your backyard is a wonderful place to gather with family and friends; think of it as an extension of your home. It is a great way to entertain guests with a family outdoor barbeque or a place to have an intimate gathering with a glass of wine and some appetizers.


Here are a few ideas to help you enjoy your outdoor living space with loved ones.


Lighting enhances your entire yard. String lighting is easy, inexpensive and oh-so pretty. Solar powered LED tree lights are the perfect lighting accent for all of your outside spaces. Hang these from your trees, pergolas or patios to create a soft glow in your backyard and dress up your backyard for a whimsical feeling.

Add a pop of colour with bright area rugs, decorative outdoor fabric pillows on your patio furniture and playful tableware or accessories. This allows your outdoor living space to have personality and flare, it also makes your space more unique and inviting.

Create a relaxing oasis! Grab a good book and curl up in a hammock or outdoor lounger. The soothing sounds of nature will have you dreaming of adventure. It also adds extra seating for guests in a non traditional way. Depending on how much space you have in your backyard, you can buy a larger hammock that will allow 2 people to sit and swing on it comfortably. Just make sure you have a professional hang it properly for the correct support, designing a fun look is great but safety is more important.
