There are times in everyone’s life when they just want to escape and go somewhere private and quiet, away from the everyday hustle and bustle. Why not make that escape just a few steps away in your own backyard? Here are some inspiring backyard retreats that will have you looking at your outdoor space in a whole new light.
1. The Backyard Shed
One way to make your retreat a year-round venture is to have a small shed in your backyard, sheltering you from the elements and giving you plenty of privacy. The structure can double as a garden shed or a studio.
2. Pull up a Chair
Pull up a chair and make any space in your backyard your private little retreat. In the middle of the garden, in a cozy nook or on the patio, make yourself at home outdoors in a comfortable chair.
3. A Cozy Enclosure
A cozy backyard enclosure is the perfect spot to read a book, take a nap or just enjoy a beverage. Surround yourself with a pergola or carve out a special place in your garden for a spot to relax.
Hammocks are the epitome of backyard relaxation. Lazy summer days or nights can be spent whiling away the hours in these backyard staples. No summer is complete without a nap in a hammock.
5. A Tent
A tent will have you reminiscing about your childhood as you cozy up in your own private little oasis. Make your own tent with a blanket or sheet and fill it with pillows and all the comforts of home.
Let these outdoor retreats inspire you to find your own backyard escape. It can be as simple as a comfortable chair or hammock, or you can choose a multi-purpose seating area or shed. Have fun creating your own backyard oasis.
I love these! I definitely wouldn’t mind having a hammock or a fire pit in my backyard – sounds like a great way to relax on the weekends. Definitely want to update my backyard, now!
