It’s summertime, and we all want to get outdoors and enjoy the warm weather. But you might be wondering: how can I make my garden a fun place? This list will help you find new ways to spend time in your yard this summer.
Let’s start with lighting for consideration. One of the best things about solar lights is that they are so easy to use. You put them in your garden, point them in the right direction and go on with your day.
If you want to make sure that they’re effective, here is a small tip: consider where you’ll be placing your solar lights. Most solar lights only have one or two settings, so make sure to place them where they will shine as brightly as possible. If you’re using a motion sensor light, place it where people will walk by most often (like outside the entrance to your house).
The easiest garden to start with is your herb garden. Herbs are easy to grow and can be used in cooking, teas and other beverages, home remedies, crafts, and more. They’re also very versatile in their use: you can use them fresh or dried (if you harvest them before the first frost).
Herbs grow well in pots so they don’t need much soil space—a small container will do just fine! If you have limited space on your patio or deck, consider hanging one from a tree branch with some twine or rope. There are even hanging planters that fit over vegetable gardens for those who want to try their hand at gardening but don’t want to maintain a large plot of land.
A grill is the most obvious addition to an outdoor kitchen, but it’s not the only one. You can also use your kitchen for cooking and socializing. A simple two-burner camp stove can be used to cook a meal or hot dog over, while a full kitchen with sink and refrigerator will allow you to prepare meals in advance and serve them at your leisure. You could even go so far as to set up a small picnic table with chairs, which will provide additional seating during events such as birthday parties or barbecues. (1)
Art can be made from recycled materials, such as old car parts or plaques of wood. It is a great conversation starter and is an excellent way to express your personality. If you are looking for a way to decorate your garden, consider creating some art that will make it stand out!
A fire pit is a great way to bring the family together. If you’re looking for an easy DIY project this summer, consider building your own fire pit. You can use it for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs, keeping warm, or keeping bugs away. Plus, if you don’t want to make one yourself, there are plenty of options available for purchase at home improvement stores. If you choose to buy a pre-made fire pit then be sure to follow all safety precautions when using them!
If you’re ready to join the garden party, now is the time to get started. Whether it’s an herb garden or a fire pit, there are lots of ways to spend time outdoors this summer. We hope the tips have given you some inspiration and help with planning your own outdoor space! (2)
