Outdoor activities for your garden

Have you spent the time and effort to create a beautiful garden space? Creating a gorgeous garden is not an easy job, and it takes plenty of love and time to make this space into a flourishing place for your plants. Once you’ve created this, it’s time to enjoy what you’ve made and share it with those you love. Summertime is an ideal time of year to spend time in your garden and reap the rewards of all your hard work. You can relax and unwind, allowing the power of nature to overtake your senses and remove the tension from your body. Sit in stillness, hear the birds singing and watch the breeze slowly move the tree branches. When you’re not sitting quietly with a book in your beautiful garden, you can plan a fun summer activity there for your family and friends.

Sports

If you have some lawn space in your garden, it is just perfect for setting up a lawn badminton net. Badminton is a great way to get lots of people involved because you can have up to four people on the court, and rotate quickly! It’s tons of fun and everyone gets into the friendly competition. Another fun lawn game is croquet. You can set up the course to be as easy or as challenging as you want, taking advantage of the natural dips and flat areas of your garden. You can create obstacles around trees or just keep it simple! A croquet game is a classic summer activity that will have everyone smiling. Finally, you can play volleyball or Frisbee out in your garden if you have enough space. Playing sports with your family and friends is a super bonding activity, and is an awesome way to get some healthy exercise. There’s nothing better than working up a good sweat and then sitting down to a delicious summertime meal.

BBQ

For the ultimate summertime gathering, invite your friends over for a BBQ. There’s nothing better than gathering together in the warm summer sunshine, enjoying lemonade and good music, chatting with friends and sitting down to a meal outdoors. Of course, you’ll need a good grill to get your barbecue going. Invest in a nice grill that can last you for years. You can cook up burgers, chicken, even veggie kebabs and make up some nice big salads that will satisfy the healthy eaters in your group. Corn on the cob is another backyard BBQ favorite! Round out the meal with watermelon and some cold drinks.

Garden party

You can create any sort of garden party to hold this summer. Maybe you want to organize something more fancy and formal than a BBQ. You can create a more sophisticated atmosphere and invite your guests over at night. Buy some string lights to hang throughout your garden to give it a magical feel in the evening. Set up your garden furniture and set out your nicer plates and glasses for this occasion. You can welcome guests with a crisp glass of wine and selection of appetizers, then serve a gourmet meal as the main course. End with a fancy dessert like a tiramisu or berry cobbler made from summertime berries.
