Australia is a land of sun and surf. Whether it’s a weekend hike in the Sunshine Coast or a Sunday by the sea on the Gold Coast, Australians love to spend their free time in the great outdoors. But we don’t always have time to get out of the house. If you feel your backyard isn’t the outdoor playground you imagined, why not consider the following renovations.
A backyard staple for Aussie homes, a pool is not only fun for the family, but also a great way to keep fit and cool off. Whether you want a lap pool that hugs your home or a large kidney shaped pool for the kids, there is something for every need and budget. For a multi-purpose pool, consider a lap pool that is also connected to a larger, shallower area at one end to satisfy fitness needs and the kids.
If you are a fan of dinner parties or have kids, a deck is a great option for outdoor entertaining. Even if you don’t have a lot of space, a small deck can be a nice way to add texture and a clean space to entertain. Include a pergola to ensure fun in all weathers and invest in a large table and chairs for a basic setup.
Whether it is for your eyes only or to increase the value of the home, landscaping can go a long way to improving the feel and look of a space. Ensure longevity and easy maintenance by choosing succulents and native plants. Also consider the addition of a bird bath to attract local wildlife and something a little luxurious.
