Your garden can stay as lovely as it is now, but why not upgrade it to be a truly luxurious retreat for you and your family?

Spend your lazy afternoons and relaxing weekends away from everyday stress in a wonderful personal oasis in your own backyard. It is time for remodeling. Check out these suggestions on how to improve your garden.

Modern Porch Swing

If you have a front or back porch, you could make it really cozy by adding a porch swing which will serve as a comfy seating area. Try to get one with a resort-style look to make it a decorative furnishing, too. Maybe you’ll need professional installation but it will probably become your favorite reading or napping spot in the afternoon.

Hang a Hammock

You can never get enough of swinging, so if you have two strong trees in the backyard, you should definitely hang a hammock in their shade. There are also models that come with a stand, in case you don’t have trees sturdy enough. Make sure the ground under the hammock is soft, preferably thick grass or bark mulch.

Inground Swimming Pool

You could invest a bit more by building an inground swimming pool. When you just think of a pool surrounded by garden flowers and shrubbery, tall trees and hanging lights, you simply know this where you would spend most of the hot, sunny days.

Get a Mobile Drinks Cart

Whether you have a swimming pool or just a patio in the garden, a mobile drinks cart is a practical and elegant thing to have. Fill it with spritzers, tropical drinks, and iced teas, so that everything is within your reach and easily moveable when you need it. Stock the bar cart with your favorite drinks and maybe a few toppers to add the feeling of luxury.

Build a Pergola

The beauty of a garden is that you can enjoy it whenever you feel like it if you decide to invest in a pergola with a retractable roof. Quality roof design and installation appropriate for your outdoor space will ensure maximum comfort at any time of the year. In a way, you’ll get an additional room that seamlessly becomes the open garden.

Install an Outdoor Shower

If you have a swimming pool, you can upgrade the whole setting by adding a luxurious outdoor shower. You may not be able to use it all-year-round but it can be a great, relaxing ritual even if you don’t feel like dipping into the pool. Use aromatherapy shower gels to spoil all your senses.

Build a Treehouse

If there’s an expansive forest continuing on your garden, or even if you have just a few sturdy trees in the yard, there’s your chance to build your dream treehouse. If you don’t want to deal with the whole house, you can simply build a banister to serve as a lovely lookout on the garden or the neighborhood.

Add a Few Lush Accents

Maybe you don’t have the budget for bigger upgrades and improvements in the garden, but a few cheaper investments can make an unbelievable difference. Lush outdoor cushions are not a big investment but they will fancy up the surroundings if they are high quality, playful and soft.

Just make sure they are fade-resistant and moisture-resistant as well. To complete the look, add a couple of comfy throws to keep you warm during the cold nights. Even an item like a lush outdoor rug will add warmth and luxury to the area.

Firepit for Magical Evenings

Today, there are fire pits for every budget, so don’t think it would be too much of an investment. No matter what size your patio is or what style you’re aiming at, there’s a fire pit for you. Choose between modular sets with ready-made pieces such as wood storage, chimney, and fireplace. It will be a perfect gathering spot for the whole family during cold evenings when you only need a warm beverage to feel happy.

Outdoor Kitchen

If you want to make a huge impact, then being able to dine outside is the ultimate endeavor. Numerous styles of the outdoor kitchen are at your disposal. You will be torn apart until you make up your mind on which one to select. You can entertain your guests, throw garden parties or simply have a quiet dinner in your garden, having every kitchen appliance within your reach.
