I’ve been thinking of different ways to make my backyard look more relaxing (make my lawn useful). I feel like it’s a place where I should be able to sit and just not have to think about anything.
1. A nice idea for my backyard was a deck. I wanted to be able to have one that was covered and that had a net around it to keep out mosquitos. It’s not hard to get one put up or to put it up on your own. Contractors are not that expensive and neither are materials.
2. A pool that was simple and cheap helped my yard to be more relaxing. I do have kids so it can get loud out there, but when I want to take some time to myself I can go out there when they’re at school and it’s really relaxing (maybe it’s about time for me to get lawn care services).
3. The final option I’m going to share is to have a meditation space. Mine is a walkway that leads to a place closed in with bushes and other tall plants. My neighbors can’t see into it and it’s not that loud because it’s away from everything. Going out there to read is always enjoyable for me.
