How to Add a Touch of Luxury to Your Backyard
  • Opening Intro -

    Explore ways to add livable space to your home and make your backyard a great place to spend time.


Add beauty and luxury to just about any yard with a simple installation or some landscaping. Encourage your family to get outdoors, spend some time together, and smell the roses.

Add a Fire Pit

Fire pits stimulate all the senses. They add beauty, aroma, and cozy warmth. A backyard fire becomes a gathering spot where family and friends share quality time together. A gooey, hot s’more is an excellent tool for encouraging kids to put down their devices. Build the pit yourself at a bargain, or opt for an ultra-modern and ultra-safe gas and rounded pebble design. Either way, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.

Build a Pond

A water feature instantly transforms a backyard. Plan it right, and sunbeams will dance off the water and into your home. Even a small pond, when surrounded by water lilies and pickerel, becomes a meditative getaway. If you’ve got space to work with, the sky is the limit. Add the sound of flowing water and install a beautiful fountain, like those you can get from Fountain Mountain Inc. Animal lovers can raise koi, or even backyard ducks with the right filtration systems.

Hang a Hammock

Maybe you’ve got a great space, but there’s nowhere to put up your feet. A hammock is an inviting hide away. Encourage yourself to read more, and appreciate the space that you have. It can even serve as a unique backdrop for family portraits. No trees? No problem, there are many self-supporting hammocks. With all the choices in design and color, you’ll find one that fits into your yard.

Plant Lots of Flowers

Gardeners do the work because the payoff is rewarding. Nothing has guests asking to see the backyard like a spray of fresh blooms. Lining your yard with flowers brings in hummingbirds, butterflies, and adds dazzling aromas to your outdoor space. Plant perennials for a maintenance free approach or edibles for color and flavor in the kitchen. The charm will spread through your home in the form of gorgeous vases and arrangements from the garden.

Backyard luxury doesn’t have to be expensive, and you don’t need a lot of space. These options leave no excuse. Create outdoor space worth spending time in and expand your home. Let your creativity run wild, plant a garden or raise backyard poultry!
