4 Ways to Enjoy Your Backyard in 2022

June 7, 2022

Are you ready for a fresh start for 2022? Us too! Many of our lives have changed radically over the past couple of years. If you’re looking for fresh, innovative ways to enjoy your outdoor living spaces, at SummerSpace® making outdoor living comfortable, convenient, and stylish is our specialty. We love to help people create backyard living areas they love to live life in. So, here are 4 steps to enjoying your backyard more in 2022.

Block the Sun, Insects & Nosy Neighbors 

No matter how much you love your neighbors, having privacy in your backyard is essential for unwinding and relaxing in your own backyard. Privacy fences aren’t the only solution to adding secluded, protected areas in your backyard. Perhaps you don’t want to block your view, or local codes regulate height. Maybe it’s just too expensive to build a fence.

SummerSpace FlexShade screen systems are designed to provide some much-needed privacy, while also blocking the glare of the sun and even insects. At the push of a button, retractable screened shades raise and lower to the height you desire. Lower it all the way to keep out the annoying bugs, or keep it raised halfway so you can enjoy the view without the sun in your eyes. The screen tucks away from view in a compact 5” headbox when not in use.

Create a Variety of Outdoor Spaces

The trend for 2022 is to set up several areas in the backyard, each suited to different purposes. For example, having one area for reclining, another for dining, one for games, and perhaps another for a firepit or fireplace.

This configuration allows a family to all enjoy their backyard simultaneously, even if their activities are different. Picture a game court for the kids, a reading and relaxing area for mom, a well-equipped grilling area for dad with a retractable awning for cover, and a nice seating and dining area for the whole family to hang out.

Fireside Chats Never Go Out of Style

The variety of outdoor firepits and fireplaces available today is simply stunning. However, whether you opt for a grand natural rock fireplace or a simple firepit with a few lawn chairs around it, nothing helps you get true year-round enjoyment out of your backyard like a fire.

In the summer, it provides light to gather for hours after sunset. And in the cooler months, it makes a few hours outdoors possible when you’d otherwise be stuck indoors. Fire relaxes you when you’re stressed, comforts you when you’re blue, encourages conversations. It even inspires impromptu parties with roasted weenies and marshmallows!

Prioritize Comfort in Your Backyard

Spending time outside in your backyard has so many fantastic perks. Don’t let harsh direct sunlight or intense heat prevent you from enjoying those benefits. With a SummerSpace retractable awning, your outdoor space will become a pleasant, shaded oasis. Our awnings are affordable and can be retracted, so you only use it when it’s convenient. 

Another common backyard discomfort is pesky bugs. Not only are they a nuisance, but they can also bite you and try to get your food. Our FlexShade screen systems will keep those pesky insects at bay so you can enjoy your time outdoors!
