If you own a home with a spacious backyard, congratulations. It’s a true luxury. Now, it’s time to decide what you want to put back there. A large open area gives you a lot of options, depending on your interests and lifestyle.

Here are some ideas of what to install in a large and spacious backyard.

BASKETBALL COURT

Do you like to shoot some hoops? This may be the perfect place to install your very own basketball court. You may need to get some work done to the ground, just to make sure the area is level, before laying down cement for your court. But once it’s up and running, it will be a great way to have some friends over and get some exercise.

GARDEN

A great idea and a great hobby– growing a garden in your backyard can be a very rewarding venture. Using home-grown vegetables in your next recipe can ensure that the ingredients are always fresh, in addition to impressing all of your dinner guests. Or, grow a flower garden. Purchasing flowers can get very expensive. However, if you tend your garden properly, you can get some of the most magnificent flowers to bloom at a fraction of the cost.

POOL

A pool is always a great addition to any backyard. Whether it’s an in-ground or out-of-ground pool, pools can be enjoyed by people of all ages. It especially makes a great centerpiece for hosting a family or neighborhood barbecue. Kids can jump in and out of the water while you grill everyone some delicious food. What could be better? Plus, it’s a great way to get some low-impact exercising that works out your entire body.

TREE HOUSE / SWING SET

This one really only applies to people with small children or people planning to have a family. Build them a fun area in your enclosed backyard so they have somewhere to play outside, while also staying within the safety of your property.

Who doesn’t need a little extra storage space? Sheds have many purposes, and they don’t necessarily need to take up that much room either. You can store some extra summer outdoor furniture in there during the winter months, store your boat in it in the off-season, and so much more. If you find the right supplier, shed prices can also be very reliable and reasonably priced.
