Sprucing Up Your Backyard for Summer BBQ Season

Get your backyard ready for BBQ season with these tips from our blog post. From comfortable seating areas to outdoor kitchens, SHR can help!

Summer is just around the corner, and with it comes BBQ season! For many of us in North Texas, BBQ season is a big deal. It’s a time when we gather with friends and family in the backyard to enjoy great food, good company, and beautiful outdoor weather.

But before you start sending out invitations, take a good look at your backyard. Is it ready for the season? If not, don’t worry. In this blog post, we’ll share some tips and ideas for sprucing up your backyard for summer BBQ season.

Create a Comfortable Seating Area

One of the most important elements of any backyard BBQ is the seating area. Whether you’re planning a small get-together or a big party, your guests will appreciate a comfortable place to sit and relax.

Consider adding some outdoor furniture, such as a patio set, lounge chairs, or even a hammock. What could make this area more fun? A fire pit! If you have a deck or patio, be sure to give it a good cleaning and add some colorful outdoor cushions for a pop of color.

Add Lighting for Ambiance

BBQs don’t have to end when the sun goes down. Adding some lighting to your backyard can create a cozy ambiance and allow your guests to stay and enjoy the evening. Consider stringing up some outdoor lights, installing some solar-powered pathway lights, or adding some tiki torches for a tropical feel.

Install an Outdoor Kitchen or Grill

One of the best ways to take your backyard BBQs to the next level is by installing an outdoor kitchen or grill. Not only will this give you more cooking space, but it will also allow you to cook and entertain at the same time. From built-in grills to outdoor pizza ovens, there are plenty of options to choose from. And if you’re on a budget, a simple charcoal grill will do just fine.

Create a Fun Game Area in the Backyard

Adding some fun games to your backyard can keep your guests entertained for hours. Consider setting up a game of horseshoes, cornhole, or even a volleyball net. For kids, consider adding a swing set or a sandbox. And if you have a pool, be sure to have some pool games, such as pool volleyball or Marco Polo, ready to go.

Incorporate Plants and Flowers

Adding some plants and flowers to your backyard can give it a natural, welcoming feel. Consider planting some colorful flowers in pots or adding some hanging baskets. If you have a green thumb, you may even want to create a small garden or herb bed. And if you have a fence, consider adding some climbing vines or a trellis for a unique touch.
