BY Wolf Home Products |

As we move closer to that great summer weather, you may be looking for backyard entertainment ideas. If you have an outdoor space, there are some ways to give it a makeover in time for the summer entertainment season. From creating new things to do to making the environment of your outdoor spaces more pleasant, these are a few ways to transform your backyard into a beautiful space your family and guests will love.

1. Add a Fire Pit

Adding a fire pit to your backyard is easier than you might think. Many different home stores carry various sizes of stand-alone models you can move to different areas in your backyard as needed. If you want a more permanent fixture, you could do some minor landscaping to create a more natural-looking pit.

With a fire pit, you can enjoy roasting hotdogs, make smores and other treats with the fire, do some backyard camping or enjoy the flickering flames while relaxing in an outdoor chair. Members of your family and guests of all ages will love this addition to your backyard.

2. Buy a Hot Tub

There aren't too many people who would turn down a soak in a hot tub or jacuzzi! This is a fun fixture to have in your backyard that you can use throughout the year, even when it's cold. Anyone can enjoy a hot tub, and they can even get used for therapeutic reasons for some individuals.

Buying a hot tub will come at a higher cost than other projects, which is important to keep in mind. However, there are a variety of options that can make them more affordable and fit in different budgets.

3. Order a Pergola

Adding a pergola to your backyard goes beyond entertainment. Like arbors, trash containers and other accessories, pergolas can easily increase your home's value

Pergolas are open structures with no walls, and they feature four support beams and a decorative roof, such as a lattice. These structures are an entertainer's dream as they can provide support for items such as chandeliers, small speakers, strings of lights, fabric and ceiling fans. Always ask your landscape designer for more information on the types of decor your pergola can support. 

Whether you'd like to special order your pergola or have one created out of Wolf Trim, Wolf Home Products® has got you covered. Plus, our Wolf Railing product line allows you to customize your backyard space with matching pergolas and other add-on items. 

4. Dig a Pond

This project requires the most work. You have to change the landscape of your yard, even for a small pond. This requires digging, a variety of equipment and time. But, when you finish the project, you'll have a beautiful feature in your yard that adds to the atmosphere of any get-together or activity.

One fun aspect of building a pond in your backyard is that it has a lot of creative potential. When you work with a landscaper, they can help you design an amazing water feature you'll love.
