In the US, more than 75% of homeowners have a lawn.
But, many of us simply don’t know how to look after our green spaces. Instead of simply ignoring your lawn or only mowing it once a month, why not turn it into extra living space?
In this article, we’ll look at three ways you can create a beautiful outdoor space, perfect for gatherings of friends or family.
You don’t need to break the bank to turn your lawn into a luxurious entertainment space. Let’s take a look at a few outdoor living spaces on a budget:

1. Build a Cosy Fire Pit Space
Is there anything more pleasurable than gathering around the fire pit, singing songs, and drinking beer with friends?
Essential to this scene is the fire. Why not build or buy a fire pit in your backyard so you can entertain year-round without ruining your grass? Check out The Fire Pit Store for more ideas.
Make sure you have a guitar on hand for summer nights and a big bag of marshmallows to roast on the fire.
When you have a fire pit, you don’t necessarily need lots of chairs. Bring out picnic blankets, cushions from indoors, and cosy blankets to snuggle under instead!
2. Invite Nature Into Your Garden
Nowadays, we’re always being told to slow down and be more mindful. If you can’t escape into the countryside, then why not escape into your backyard?
By rewilding your garden, not only are you inviting birds, bees, squirrels, and other animals into your life, you’re also creating a beautiful space for meditation.
Planting native trees, bushes, and flowers is a great way to relax and unwind. Why not also build a beautiful mosaic patio from old glass bottles? Then, have one comfortable chair in the middle of your garden to spend time reflecting on your life.
3. Create a Canopy
Does your garden get a lot of sunshine? Then creating a canopy is the best way to ensure you can enjoy your outdoor space all summer long.
Why not make your own cabana using posts and light material to drape over the top? Alternatively, there are many cheap options on Amazon if you don’t fancy doing some DIY.
Add outdoor tables or even large decorative pillows to create a relaxing environment that you will want to spend time sitting in! Make sure it’s extra comfortable and even add pretty outdoor lighting to set a calming ambiance every evening.
