DIY Fun Ideas: Best Ways to Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space All Year

Saturday, January 11, 2020

Having your outdoor living space offers you tons of benefits.

You get to breath fresh air whenever you like; you can have a small garden with your favorite flowers and vegetables; you have an area for entertaining the guests and cooking, as well as a place to do exercise or to play games and do sports with friends and family.

The following are a few fun examples of how to spend your time beyond the walls of your home, no matter the season.
1. Cute and hardy plants
You don't have to have a big garden but a few selected plants will keep you occupied enough throughout the year and serve as a lovely decoration of your outdoor space.

Succulents are incredibly durable and don't need water on an everyday basis. They will deal with any weather thrown at them. However, you can also try adding herbs, as many of them are adapted to various weather conditions, and you'll also get something to add to your tea or meals.

2. Garden noughts and crosses
If you have a low-maintenance garden, this game will fit in perfectly. You only need a few pieces of slate and painted pebble markers to create the noughts and crosses game. Kids and people of all ages will enjoy this lovely game whenever they step into the outdoors.
3. DIY tire swing
A classic tire can become a source of fun for the kids by hanging it with a suspension rope and coloring it. Maybe you could let your kids paint their tire swing? Provide some comfort to it by adding cushions to the tire and you'll get a scene just like in the movies.
4. Protection from the weather
No point in having outdoor space that's dependable on the weather conditions. In the case of precipitation or bright sun, you need to have something above your head protecting you and allowing you to still get some fresh air.

It's best to have a clever outdoor area design and build that would allow adjusting the roof to the current weather. Having a retractable or an opening roof would be most helpful, and also serve as decor.
5. Entertainment area
There should be an area in your outdoor space designated for entertainment only. Whether it will be an outdoor kitchen, a patio or a gazebo, it should have appropriate and comfortable seating for the guests.

Just a couple of retractable outdoor chairs and a coffee table will suffice in creating a spot where you can sit and chat comfortably with your guest. The size of the entertainment area will depend on the overall size of the outdoor space and your preferences. Think about the style you want to achieve and the purposes it will be used to serve to get a clearer picture.

6. A treehouse
This is probably the kids' ultimate dream when it comes to occupying the outdoor space. A treehouse provides so many opportunities for games and creative daydreaming and fantasies.

Another benefit is that you have complete control over the design, adapting it to your needs and space conditions. You can keep adding to the structure over time and end up with a luxurious treehouse after a while. And what's best about it is that you don't even have to have a tree inside your yard to build your kids their dream house.

7. Garden hopscotch
The classic games are the best - there is almost no adult or a kid who doesn't know how to play them. You will invoke many childhood memories and bitter-sweet nostalgia by adding a hopscotch game inside your yard. It will entertain various generations in many years to come. You just need several garden pavers and a pot of paint to decorate and mark the pavers. To create a lovely spot for the game, cover the area with mulch.
8. DIY garden bar
Entertaining outdoors is most common in the summer and like any summer party, yours need to have a bar where the guests can be served drinks.

It's quite simple to make your own garden bar with a couple of pallets, corrugated aluminum for the roof and the tools. It's one day's work, and in return, you will have a cool addition for your entertaining nights. Add some string lights to it and you got yourself Hawaiian magic.

In conclusion
Outdoor living space can be used for pure fun in so many ways. It just takes a bit of time to decide which way you want the decor and the purpose to go. After that, you can manage one corner of the space at a time.
