How to increase the entertainment value of your backyard

Nothing beats entertaining in our backyards. No matter the amount of space you have, there are lots of things you can do to help your outdoor space live up to its entertainment purpose. We have put together a few backyard ideas that will help you make the most of our beautiful Queensland climate and increase the WOW factor of your outdoor space!

1. Enjoy the shade with a patio, pergola or verandah 

Protect your family and friends from the elements with an undercover outdoor area. A well-designed patio, pergola or verandah can add value to your home and improve the look of your property by creating more living space.

2. Extend the indoors with timber decking 

There is nothing more Australian than relaxing or entertaining out on the deck. Timber decking is a popular outdoor flooring option, it makes the perfect base on which to build an excellent outdoor entertainment area, and it is a fantastic way to extend your indoor living space into the outdoors and add value to your entertainment area. Decks are a great place to gather for a family lunch, entertain into the evening, or simply sit back and relax.

3. Add a backyard fire pit 

During the cooler months, spending time and entertaining in our backyard can be less appealing. A perfect addition to any outdoor living area is a fire pit, which helps you to continue entertaining right through.

4. Make a splash with a swimming pool

There is no doubt a swimming pool will be a huge hit with the whole family and by adding a gazebo or patio, it can easily become a real centre point of any backyard. Adding a pool to your outdoor living space will help entertain both the young and the old, and add a distinct WOW factor to your home.

5. Add paths and walkways

A concrete path that connects your entertaining areas is not only visually appealing but also keeps your outdoor and indoor spaces cleaner, stopping mud and grass being walked around. A concrete path also reduces those unsightly tracks on your lawn!

6. Create the perfect garden

If you’re planning on entertaining outdoors, you’ve got to spare a thought for aesthetics. Nothing says outdoor sanctuary like some greenery. Updating your home’s landscaping is a great way to increase the value of your property and create outdoor spaces for relaxing and entertaining.

7. Disguise the unsightly parts

Cover up the outdoor shed or freshen up the fence with some plants, screens, or a lick of paint. Want to hide those hot water systems, garbage bins or aircon unit? Try a screen or fence.
