Tips To Turn Your Backyard Into An Oasis Of Tranquility
The sun is finally here and summer vacation is just around the corner. That means leaving the TV off and enjoying the long, balmy summer evenings outdoors. How about a cozy barbecue with friends and family? Turn your backyard into a true oasis of calm with these tips.
Provide Sun Protection
During the summer months, you want to enjoy your garden for as long as possible. Preferably from early in the morning until late at night. But when the sun reaches its peak at noon, you would prefer to retreat indoors. This is where the right sun protection plays a crucial role! With a folding arm awning or a patio cover, you can create a place where you can stay outside even in full sun in no time.
An awning is ideal for quickly transforming your sunny patio into a shady spot. This is extremely practical, especially in a smaller garden. It takes up little space and provides shade whenever you want it. With the push of a button, you can open the folding arm awning and immediately enjoy the shade it provides.
Do you have more space available and want a real garden room to relax in sunny weather? Then opt for a patio canopy with a slatted roof. A canopy can be placed either freestanding in the garden or attached to the house and has many uses. By changing the position of the slats, you can choose how much sun or shade you want. Optionally, you can equip the patio canopy with screens to sit sheltered from the wind and enjoy nature with even more comfort.
The Right Outdoor Lighting Is The Key To Coziness.
Sitting on a dark patio in the evening isn’t exactly pleasant. The light that shines outside from indoors is often not enough to illuminate the garden sufficiently. Therefore, the right garden lighting is of great value. More specifically, dimmable garden lighting. A warm hue generally makes for a cozier atmosphere.
Do you decide to have a patio cover in your garden or an awning on your house? Then the dimmable lighting can be integrated into it. In this way, you will create an atmospheric place where you can end the evening in all comfort.
Avoid Chilly Evenings With A Patio Heater.
As much as we would like it to be, our summer evenings are unfortunately not always summer warm. It gets chilly quickly in the evenings, and that’s when we often opt to retreat indoors. That’s a shame because even on cooler evenings, it can be lovely outside.
With a patio heater, you can sit outside until the wee hours of the morning, even on cooler days. The great advantage of radiant heaters is that they have different heat settings, so you can adjust the heat intensity to your liking. The radiant heater can be mounted under your awning or pergola and with the screens closed, the heat will stay even longer.
Full Use Of Nature
Where can you relax best? In nature, of course! That’s why you should pay attention to the right planting in your garden. Grasses, trees, flowers, ornamental grasses, shrubs, fruits, etc… provide a beautiful picture and make you forget about the outside world for a while. When choosing to plant, think about what you like and what seems low-maintenance for you and your garden will become a real gem. According to research, water has been proven to have a calming effect on the human body and mind. Therefore, a (swimming) pond or swimming pool is ideal and also has the great advantage that you can refresh yourself at high temperatures.
No Relaxation Without Comfortable Furniture.
Spending the evening at the table can be fun, but for several years now more and more people are choosing to set up a lounge corner in your garden. What can be done in your living room, can also be realized outside. Comfortable garden furniture is therefore increasingly indispensable. They are inviting, offer tranquility, and are the ideal place to start an evening with friends and end in all comfort!
