3 ways to enjoy your outdoor area more this summer


With the warm months just around the corner, this is the best time to plan ways to enjoy your outdoor area more this summer.

Aussies love outdoor gatherings with family and friends. So we’ve come up with three great ideas for you guys to maximise the use of your area.

Invest in some water fun

You want your family to have memories enjoying something fun in your home during the hot summer months. Why not invest in some great water guns or a slip and slide? You don’t need to spend too much on these items. But if you do have the budget for it (or have been saving for it for a while), an outdoor pool would be a great addition to your home too. There are plenty that you can set up on your own that comes with everything you need to maintain it. There are heaps of water fun ideas out there too.

Spruce up the look

Have you always wanted a pergola on your backyard? Or perhaps just to renovate your outdoor area so there’s more space for those family barbies. Whatever it is, now is the best time to get the professionals in to make your outdoor dream come true. Companies like Thomsons Outdoor Pine can help you with all your outdoor building and renovating needs. You can pick your own design or talk to them for ideas on how to best maximise your space. Just picture yourself, relaxing on your beautiful deck, with a book and a cup of tea, enjoying a perfect quiet afternoon.

Set up your own outdoor cinema

In today’s quick technology upgrades, digital movie projectors, TV screens and movie services have become more affordable. Imagine spending the summer nights with your family, watching a movie in your every own outdoor cinema. No more queuing up to buy tickets, now you can enjoy your favourite movies right at your own space and enjoy it with the people you love. This is also a great idea for kids’ camp-out parties, or even just a reason to invite friends over.

Whatever your plan is, think about the things you want to do this summer and take that action now. There is so much to choose from, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
