Backyard Makeover Tips for Your Dream Backyard

Welcome back to the Albuquerque Self Storage blog! Do you feel as though you need to update your backyard? We know that towards the end of summer you begin to think of ideas you and ways you could have decorated for this summer, but we’re here to give you a few tips on your backyard makeover for next summer. When deciding to remodel your backyard you want to think of designs that will also give you more return on investment for the future. 

Stone Pathway

You don’t always need to have a lushious garden in your backyard, especially if you live in the Southwest. To create a nice Southwest backyard place materials such as mulch, a few cacti, and a stone pathway. Your pathway can lead from the house to the pool, from the house to a playhouse in the backyard, or from the house to a dining and living room area in the backyard. To light the pathway consider adding small ground lights or glow in the dark rocks.

Outdoor Kitchen

Who doesn’t love to grill in the backyard when the weather is absolutely perfect? Instead of having to cook inside while everyone is enjoying the outdoors, why not create the perfect entertainment spot for your guests? Having a kitchen in your backyard doesn’t have to be overpriced. There are many ways in which you can create the perfect kitchen area within your budget. 

Comfortable Seating

When you are in the process of a backyard makeover you want to consider how often you’ll be entertaining guests. If you are redoing your backyard the chances are rather often, so take into consideration the seating arrangements you’ll want. Do you want a couch, a few lawn chairs, or benches? You can do all of these or one, whichever fits your backyard best. However, outdoor seating is one of the most important features. You and your guests want to feel comfortable and relaxed.

Dining Area

If you plan on doing a kitchen area or grill, having a nice dining area for everyone to enjoy their meal is a must! There are many different dining sets you can get for your backyard makeover, or you can always DIY your dining area table and chairs. If you decide to DIY you can get your friends and family to help you build your enjoyable dining area and have a great time building!

Fire Pit

Sitting around a fire pit and making s’mores is one of the best ways to enjoy your backyard. If you don’t want to purchase an expensive fire pit you can certainly DIY it; however, you want to be sure that it is properly built. Be sure to include enough seating around your fire pit so that everyone can be nice and comfortable making s’mores and relaxing.
