Summer Kick-Off: Bring The Fun To Your Outdoor Living Space

Published Date: Jul 19, 2017

By now we’re sure everyone has noticed the days gradually getting warmer and how much later the sun is staying out to play each day. With these warmer days and later nights come the joyous season we look forward to all year long- Summer! And with its arrival also comes the perfect time to build that fun and relaxing back yard oasis you’ve been putting off since last summer. With a few improvements, you can make the outdoor “space” in your backyard into a personal water park, campground, or outdoor restaurant that will provide many priceless summers’ worth of leisure and memory making. Let’s consider all the essentials for a back-yard oasis:

At Home Water-park

Unlike living grass, artificial turf has all the proper drainage and durability necessary to accommodate at home water slides. From sideways-flying “slip ’n’ slides” up to the big inflatable slides, SP Turf can accommodate it all. With turf, you also never have to worry about your water attractions spilling water onto the lawn and creating a messy mud pit. Synthetic grass will drain all that water without turning into a mud pit, and it will remain, green, healthy, and vibrant after many summers’ worth of play that’s too hard on natural grass lawns.

Don’t forget to make your very own water park complete with outdoor water features that create a harmonious aesthetic and safe, non-slick pool pavers for walk ways, patio areas, and around swimming pools.

Backyard Camp Grounds

It’s easy to create a custom backyard camp ground for a night (or summer) under the stars. To start, pitch a tent on your pristine artificial turf. Next, fire up the built in grill and get those hotdogs cookin’. You’ll also want to kick on the fire pit and break out the smore ingredients to enjoy over campfire stories later. Last, outdoor lighting provides ample light for night time games like night time capture the flag, lawn bowling, or cornhole. You can also opt for turning those energy efficient LED’s off and bringing out the telescope for some late-night stargazing.

Personal Outdoor Restaurant

With a full outdoor kitchen on the premises there’s no need to retreat indoors for dinner and miss out on a perfect summer evening. Instead, you can grill out on a custom BBQ island and enjoy a meal in your back-yard oasis. Why not make it a potluck meal and get the whole block involved? Make your guests comfortable with by including comfortable outdoor furniture on the patio. Serve up a delicious home cooked meal for some al fresco dining with family and friends and never step foot away from your guests. With these installations, you can have the comforts you enjoy indoors as part of your outdoor living space.


Why make it a choice between the indoors and outdoors when it’s never been easier to make spending time outside more comfortable, satisfying, and fun? Make this the year you design and build all the outdoor elements you’ve always wanted for swimming and water fun, back yard camping, and outdoor cooking in the warm summer sun?
