Having your own mini oasis in your backyard where you can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and relax can easily destress you. However, if your backyard is reflecting the desert in the city then you might be wondering what you can do to improve it and upgrade to one of your dreams. Attempting to create an oasis for yourself and your loved ones might feel overwhelming with all the ideas you have popping up in your head. If you are having trouble deciding which plan to go with then we have some tips to help you decide what to add to your backyard and make it feel like another adventure every time you step outside. 



If you are one of the few lucky ones who have a huge tree in your backyard then taking advantage of it is the best way to set up your dream backyard. There are many things that you can add to your trees to make your backyard look beautiful and unique. For example, you can build a bench around the tree by putting wood pallets together and painting it after you put it all together. Not only will you have a peaceful spot to lounge around in, but you can also add decorative pillows. If you are not interested in adding a bench to your tree then you can also put a hammock, a swing or even a small little tree house for your children. 



If you have little ones running around then you will most likely want to add some areas for your children to play in the backyard. Although you can do whatever you want to your backyard, you don’t need to go overboard with all the children areas in your backyard because you also need a space of your own too. In order to make sure your backyard doesn’t look like a child decorated it, you can choose to have custom built play structures for your children that are also aesthetically pleasing too. Along with adding a customized toy house to your backyard, you can also add some cute little accessories in it such as small rugs, a table and so on to make it look its best. 


Flex Your Green Thumb

Adding some plants to your home will always add value to it because of how nice it can make your home look along with making you feel good when you see it. Not only can you add flowers in vases inside your home, you can also create a vertical garden if you don’t have much space in your backyard or a regular one. You can also choose to add plants that will help your home to by picking ones that will keep away certain bugs and so on from your home. 



A perfect way to add a little tranquility and beauty in your backyard is to add a fountain. Fountains can work in any type of backyard, no matter if it is a small one or a big backyard. Fountains don’t take up much of your backyard and can work well with a small garden or to show off your furniture and decor outside. Not only will a fountain make your backyard look amazing, but it will make you feel even more relaxed as you hear the water flowing and it doesn’t cost a lot to have one put in your backyard. 


Create Rooms

Outdoor Dining

When you have a backyard, the typical and normal thing to do is host parties and small get togethers outside. If you are working on creating a perfect escape in your backyard then adding outdoor dining will be the perfect touch to your home. When you have outdoor dining, you don’t have to worry about coming up with a plan to seat everyone because you will have enough space to make everyone feel comfortable. You can also make your outdoor dining experience even more unique by creating your own table by using recycled materials. 


Fire Pit

If you love entertaining guests and love being outside then adding a fire pit to your backyard will really make your parties even more awesome. You can roast marshmallows and make smores while reminiscing about the past with your friends and loved ones. The best thing about adding a fire pit to your backyard is that you can choose to have it professionally installed or you can do it yourself by purchasing some wall stones and metal to create it. A fire pit will also provide extra seating and warmth and comfort during your outdoor parties.
