Sustainable Living: 5 Things To Do In Your New Backyard


One of the great things about living in a two storey home in Perth is the enjoyment of a spacious backyard.

There are so many things you can do to take advantage of your space, so take a look at our list below to enjoy your backyard to it’s full potential this Summer.

1. Watch Outdoor Movies

Utilise your backyard by inviting friends and/or family over to enjoy a movie night outdoors. Pick a nice warm day and find as many blankets or cushions as possible that you don’t mind using outdoors. Scatter these around the backyard in any fashion you wish and bring either your laptop or TV outside. Enjoy some food and drink whilst watching your favourite movie and a great way to entertain.

2. Host a Picnic

Get your favourite picnic basket ready and add in any food or drink you like. Fruits like watermelon, rockmelon and strawberries are perfect for Summer. This can be enjoyed with your family, friends or both.

Having a picnic in your own backyard is not only enjoyable, but convenient

3. Add a Playground

If you have children, a great way to utilise your backyard space is by adding a playground. You can incorporate a swing set and a slide for example. There are so many variations as to what you can purchase. Adding a playground will keep the kids entertained for hours and allow Mum & Dad to have a break!

4. Enjoy the Pool

Having a pool in your backyard is a great way to enjoy the Summer weather and entertain with family and friends. If you can’t afford the expense of a built in pool, purchase a blow up pool. This is a great way to pass time whilst enjoy your beautiful backyard in gorgeous weather.

5. Create your own putting green

What golf enthusiast doesn’t want their own putting green in the backyard? This is a great way to utilise space and means you can work on your golf technique in the convenience of your own home. You can build one in yourself or purchase modular putting greens online. You are only limited by your imagination.
