If you love spending time in your backyard garden throughout the day, you are sure to appreciate the ability to enjoy the space just as much at night. Here are a few things you can do to make your backyard garden more comfortable and enjoyable when the sun goes down.
Install a Covered Gazebo
One great way to make spending time in your garden enjoyable when it's dark outside is to install a covered gazebo. The gazebo will act as a shelter to help keep high winds and chills away. And the covered roof will help ensure that nobody gets wet while playing a board game or enjoying an evening dinner together.
You can store books and magazines in the gazebo without having to worry about them getting ruined too. Choose a clear material to use as your gazebo roof so you and your garden guests can enjoy star gazing at night from under the protection of the gazebo.
Build an Outdoor Fireplace
You can keep your family and guests warm and illuminate your garden space with natural light by building an outdoor fireplace in the vicinity. You can use the fireplace to roast marshmallows and hot dogs or to warm soup up on when the night is especially chilly.
You can do something as simple as use bricks to build an open fire pit in the garden or do something as complex as hiring a contractor to build a stone fireplace complete with a chimney. To give your garden more depth and make spending time there more exciting, you can paint a stenciled design on the fireplace walls or hire a local artist to paint a mural on the back wall.
Invest in LED Pathway Lights
Make sure that you and your guests can easily make your way between the backyard garden and your home's back door at night by installing LED pathway lights along your paths. This should help ensure that nobody trips or gets injured in some way while trying to navigate through your garden area when it's dark outside. And the lighting will make it easy for everyone spending time in the garden to see each other while talking or playing games together.
The lights will help illuminate the flowers and other garden features that are growing in your yard so that they can be enjoyed and appreciated no matter what time of day or night it happens to be. You can start by installing lights every few feet along the pathways in your garden and easily add more lights as your expansion needs arise.
