Who doesn’t love summer? You get to enjoy longer days with more light. The sun shines, making you feel good about the world. This all provides plenty of opportunities to socialize with friends and family. 

There is no better place to do this than from the comfort of your garden (think: Garden Party episode of The Office). If your garden is not already equipped for summer socializing, no worries; you can achieve some results fairly quickly.

Clear Up Your Garden

The first thing that you’ll want to do is clear up your garden. There is nothing wrong with taking a wild approach to the garden design. After all, having all of your plants in perfect lines isn’t the most exciting things to see. Why not plant some wildflowers to give the place a bit of color? Everyone loves color!

As long as your lawns are mowed, your bushes and hedges trimmed back, and your patio is clear of weeds and has been power washed, then you are good to go!

BBQ’s And Grills

The best way to start some outdoor socializing is to have a barbecue. There are several great grills available for outdoor use, that will give your food a great taste. You could compare the kamado joe vs big green egg to find the best smoker for you. 

Whether your tastes are for meat, fish, or vegetables, a smoker can make some tasty meals that will get all of your friends excited. 

Get A Hot Tub

Owning a hot tub has never been more achievable. You can buy some great hot tubs for a very reasonable amount these days. With more and more places selling them, the competition to get the best prices is on. You’ll want to look into the details, such as the type of filtration the tub offers, as well as the number of jets and pumps. There are lots of additional features that may tempt you, such as music systems and lighting. 

Why not create a beautiful area for your hot tub with a gazebo over it, and some outdoor heating too. That way, you can enjoy your tub through the fall, and maybe even into the winter. Even here in Vegas, the winters get pretty cold!

Patio Furniture

You’ll want to get some lovely patio furniture so that your friends and family can enjoy your garden in comfort. The more you have, the better. That way, everyone can get a seat. Make sure you test anything that you are going to buy to make sure it’s comfortable. You’ll want to relax in your garden, and having garden furniture that allows you to do this is essential. 


If you want to make your garden into a peaceful oasis, why not decorate it? Maybe include some solar-powered lights. These are relatively inexpensive, and you can get them in a range of styles. String lights make for a nice touch, particularly when attached to the inside of a gazebo. 

Make sure that if you are using any electrical items that they are designed for outdoor use, and be sure to use waterproof sockets with circuit breakers if they are mains operated.  

There are so many ways to give yourself a beautiful backyard, complete with the garden we’ve been talking about. Create it however you want, and most of all, enjoy it!
