Popular summer backyard upgrades - Get ready for the warm weather now!

Published: September 14, 2021 Last Updated: August 10, 2022

If the lockdowns we’ve experienced through the Covid pandemic have taught us anything, it’s that your little patch of ground could become the only space you have in the blink of an eye (or a Premier’s daily briefing). Across the country (and the world), households have had to adapt to their home also becoming their workplace, their schoolyard, their entertainment venue, and their gym overnight. This situation has led to a hyper-awareness of the features your home and garden offer, which has motivated many to invest in making their home as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

With the summer heat on the way, and many Australians looking forward to warm evenings of entertaining on the deck (fingers crossed), now is a great time to make sure the outdoor areas of your home are ready for some fun and relaxation.

Flower garden

Popular summer backyard upgrades

Whether you have a vast garden or a compact balcony, making the most of your outdoor space is easy. With these popular summer backyard upgrades there’s something for everyone.

Timber deck

Deck, balcony or patio makeover

Treating your timber deck to a fresh coat of decking oil or paint can make a huge difference, instantly brightening up your entertaining area. For those with patios or balconies, pavers or tiles can be quickly rid of winter mould and water stains by giving the area a once over with the pressure washer. This simple task can provide a bright, clean base to create a beautiful outdoor room.

Pot plant cactus and sun lounge

Potted plants provide living colour

Pot plants allow you to create a garden in any space, from a window ledge to your whole veranda. Having beautiful pot plants scattered around your home can help you feel calm and relaxed, decreasing anxiety, and improving memory. A recent study by the University of Technology Sydney found that plants offered residents a 37% reduction in tension and anxiety and more than 50% reduction in depression. During these uncertain times, everything we can do to feel a little better is always helpful and something as simple as adding a few pot plants to your home is totally doable.

The massive selection of colours and varieties of pot plants is almost endless, providing loads of opportunities to make the outdoor space uniquely yours.
