Creating the perfect backyard oasis includes more than just great design and beautiful elements – it should be a place that the whole family can enjoy. Whether it is somewhere to cool off on long summer days or to enjoy watching football with friends, including fun and functional design elements can go a long way towards making your backyard a place everyone will want to be. Read on for some ideas on how to create the perfect outdoor space for the entire family.
Backyards that include some kind of sport court or activity area are very popular options for families with children. Kids are sure to enjoy spending summer days shooting hoops or playing tennis with friends, and adults can enjoy bocce or a putting green.
Our model at The Meadows features a large bocce ball court that is highlighted by a set of overhead string lights that beautifully illuminate the entire playing area. The whole family can enjoy a game of bocce during the day and after the kids have gone to bed the lighting can make for great late-night fun for the adults.
For the avid golfers, a putting green is a great way to bring the country club to you. At our Sierra Highlands model, a large pool overlooks a beautiful putting green and sand trap, offering an easy way to get in some practice and cool off afterwards.
Splash Pads and Lawn Games
Pools and water elements are a great way to beat the heat on summer days, and unique features like splash pads can bring the resort life to your backyard. Our model at Whitewing features a unique infinity edge pool offset by a tiled splash pad. Bringing water elements like splash pads that are more often seen in waterparks is a great way to make time spent at home feel special.
A place to entertain and put on the game is a great feature the entire family can enjoy, and our Crossings at Meridian model features an outdoor entertaining space with foosball, darts and a TV, making it the perfect place for your next watch party. Lawn games like the cornhole found at our Fire Rock model are also a great upgrade and can make every day feel like a tailgate.
Making a space fun for any age should not come at the cost of sacrificing beauty and utility, and at Creative Environments we can create the perfect space for your family to enjoy.
