5 Useful things to do with a large backyard

Not all homes are blessed with a large backyard. When you live in the city, real estate is an expensive commodity, and for people who live in apartments and condominiums, having a backyard is considered a luxury.

For those blessed with a large backyard, there are endless possibilities that they can use the backyard for. It would be unfortunate if such a large space would be unused and just left with grass and nothing else. If you are one of those who has a large backyard and you want to do something to it but you have no idea what you can do, check out some of these projects that you can undertake to make your backyard more useful.

1. Build a pool – this might seem like the most expensive of the choices, but it would be so worth it. If you have the cash to spare, don’t hesitate to have a pool built in your backyard. With your very own pool, you don’t need to go to private pools where you might encounter long lines, unsanitary public shower areas, and if worse comes to worse, some kind of disease if the pools are not cleaned properly.

2. Create a playground/play area for children – if you have children or grandchildren, the backyard would be the perfect area for them to play on. Install some slides, obstacle courses or a sandbox where they can enjoy. You can even put a treehouse or a life-sized dollhouse if you are able to do simple carpentry.

3. Install a patio with a backyard fire pit  - if you like entertaining guests, use your backyard as an extension of your house by building a fire pit where your guests can enjoy. This is a perfect place to enjoy, especially during the colder months. Just remember to check the building codes in your city so you know the proper rules and regulations. There are many designs to choose from so do your research before you start planning.

4. Enjoy a game of basketball – if you’re an active person and enjoy a game of hoop with your friends, why not build a half-court in your very own backyard? Imagine being able to enjoy playing your favorite sport with your kids, grandkids or your friends. You can even schedule a competition to make it more interesting.

5. Build a beautiful garden  - if the previous projects seem too complicated for you, then why not go for a simple but beautiful garden? Imagine your backyard filled with flowers and trees. You can even choose a theme for your garden. You can go for the classic and elegant, or you can go for something a little more whimsical. Landscaping your backyard is a great way of utilizing the space that you have. While some garden projects do not require a lot of tools, if you have larger lot area, you may need to get some heavy equipment to meet your garden needs. Check out some of the equipment that you can rent at Rent1 USA to get started on your backyard project today.
