Oasis-In-Your-Backyard-design(NC) Summer is here and while not all of us can escape to the beach or cottage, we can create our very own backyard oasis.

It starts with considering what you already have and the areas of your backyard that could use a little love. Your oasis should reflect your personal taste and serve as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Read more for ideas on how to bring this concept to life:

Create a cozy outdoor lounge area. Make your outdoor space feel like your indoor living room. Comfortable and clean patio furniture will do just that, enticing families and friends to sit outside and enjoy the warm summer months. This will be the centre of your oasis, a gathering place, so making it comfortable and welcoming is important.

Bring the barbecue back to life. Grimy grills aren’t a welcome e part of any backyard. Give it a good cleaning with the popular brand Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. Using a damp brush, give the grill and overall barbecue a good scrub and then a thorough rinse to bring the lustre back for a new season of grilling.

Spruce up the garden. Your garden is a magical place, allowing you to escape the realities of day-to-day life so you can enjoy the simple beauty of flora and fauna. When designing your backyard keep the amount of sunlight and water that plants will need in mind. Be sure to include the colour and textures that you love to create an environment you’ll want to retreat to at the end of the day.

Bring a sparkle to your pool and outdoor toys. Whether you have an

in-ground pool or one of the inflatable varieties, a few toys serve as necessary accessories for a fun and carefree environment. If they’ve been stored over the winter, mix baking soda with warm water and give the toys a good wipe or soak and then rinse.
