We all dream of the perfect backyard, but sometimes we look out the window and see quite the opposite. Some of the most beautiful backyards have to start from somewhere, and even the drabbest outdoor areas can be turned into a renovation masterpiece. All you need is a little bit of fuel for the imagination.
More often than not, the hardest part is knowing where to start. To help you with that, here are some awesome backyard renovation ideas sure to jog your inspiration.
Outdoor entertainment area
From a flat, green expanse to a backyard fairy tale, this renovation features a great alternative to an indoor lunch on a sunny afternoon. This outdoor space, complete with soft pillows, couches and fairy lights is as comfortable as your own indoor living room, with the bonus of breath of fresh air. Consider completing your renovation with a shed to keep your backyard neat and tidy after your transformation.
Adding a bit of extra shade in the backyard is a simple renovation that goes a long way. The addition of a Bali hut, pergola or gazebo is a great way to utilise the space you already have. It offers not only protection for your outdoor furniture and barbeque set from the weather, but can also function as a poolside shelter, allowing you to dry off comfortably without bringing the water indoors.
This amazing transformation highlights that the sky’s the limit when it comes to backyard transformations. To those who can commit to having a pool, water features serve as a great centrepiece in any backyard. This particular renovation features a stunning contrast between the stark blue waters and pale stone fixtures.
This backyard transformed from plain and simple to a kid’s paradise. Adding some play equipment next to your outdoor entertainment area means that both you and your kids will be able to enjoy the outdoors to the fullest. It’s also great for birthday parties and the days when their friends from school are visiting. This way you keep the mess, noise and hyperactive energy outside.
No backyard transformation is complete without a deck. Adding deck is the perfect way to seamlessly transition from the indoors into a stunning outdoor entertainment setup. Adding a deck to this backyard gave it some extra sense of depth and dimension. This makes the yard look not only cleaner and brighter but also much more spacious.
