How to Add More Fun to Your Backyard

We’re all home a lot more these days, and it looks to be the case for the forseeable future. Plus, it’s summer, and it’s hot, so you want to make sure to add some “cool” features.

So, what can you do to spice up your backyard and make it more FUN?

Let’s look at how to add more fun to your backyard.

Spend More Time in Your Pool

The best thing you can do during the hot, most unusual summer of 2020 is spend time in your pool in your backyard. Water features can always help keep the water cool. We like adding a floating fountain to the pool if you don’t have a water feature.

Take More Pictures and Video

Make swimming more fun by creating a photo or video contest with your family. See who can take the best photos or most creative videos each week and award the family member a prize!

Up the ante with an underwater camera to catch what’s going on under the surface!

You’ll find that your kids love this idea. They can even involve their friends when they come over to swim. The more creative, artistic, or silly, the better!

Add Some Lighting

Night swimming is one of our favorite times to take a relaxing dip in the pool. It’s even better with some ambiance lighting.

Hang some bulb lights in the trees or add some Tiki torches around the pool. Or, you can light your fire table around your patio.

Don’t forget the LED lights in the pool. Colored lights add even more fun. We also like to add some floating pool lights, too.

Get Some Games

Pooltime in your backyard is even more fun when you have some athletic games in the pool like basketball and volleyball.

Adding a game brings more fun and more people into the pool!

Don’t have a sport game? You can play a myriad of games from Sharks and Minnows to Watermelon Toss and Marco Polo.

Get New Patio Furniture

After a dip in the pool, it’s nice to sit around outside and talk before firing up the grill for the evening’s meal.

To do this, you want a fun and comfortable conversation area. Look to Ultra Modern for the best in outdoor living furniture. Whether it’s a dining table, a grill, or an outdoor kitchen, we’ve got you covered. Want to add a sofa and some cushy chairs? We can do that, too!

Final Thoughts

Summertime is meant to be spent outside in your backyard. But, in Kansas, that is best done with some refreshing water around!

If you don’t have a pool, you’ll many options at Ultra Modern from above ground to semi-inground, and inground. Plus, you can find all your other outdoor living needs, too: pool chemicals, toys, floats, games, outdoor decor, patio furniture, grills, and even outdoor kitchens.
