Staycation: Create a Paradise in your Backyard!

A staycation is where you stay home for your vacation.

Vacations can be expensive, and many people these days are choosing to stay at home and just chill out, catch up on Netflix, and drink some homemade margaritas. Others choose to explore the local sights and scenery, festivals, and enjoy what their own town or city has to offer. There are many great ways to enjoy staying at home for your vacation.

If you have a garden, you could create a staycation paradise

Turn Your Backyard into a Staycation

Creating that perfect staycation backyard could mean spending that vacation money on landscaping elements such as:

  • Having a cozy area to lounge surrounded by flowers and the sights of growing vegetables.
  • A pergola to create shade and beauty
  • An outdoor kitchen for making fresh garden veggies shine
  • Dinning area surrounded by your garden where you can host guests
  • Outdoor bar with lights
  • Fresh pots of herbs
  • Use brick edging to make really clean landscaping look for your lawn or garden.
  • Grapevine Treliss to make your own wine 😉
  • Make some DIY squirrel feeders to watch some wildlife

A staycation backyard is a dream paradise where you can enjoy those vacation comforts over and over again.
