22 May 2017

Setting the scene for summer
With warmer weather upon us and holidays around the corner, the backyard beckons as the first choice for entertaining our family and friends! ‘While sausages will sizzle in any backyard barbeque, there’s 3 simple things you can do to improve your home and make your Outdoor Room look as good as it will smell!’- That’s the advice of Adbri Brand Ambassador and Better Homes and Gardens Landscaping Expert Jason Hodges, who has compiled his best backyard ideas for enhanced entertaining this summer!
‘Don’t stress if your backyard isn’t relaxation ready, you don’t need to undertake a full renovation to get the most out of your space this entertaining season! Try my top tips below, sit back and watch the compliments flow!’
Top tips for a sizzling summer!
1. You know it’s all about that Base

This rings true for your backyard, a paved base is the perfect foundation for the outdoor furniture and barbeque that will be the focal point of your entertaining area. I’ve picked my favourites from the Euro® StoneEuro® Classic and Quadro® paving ranges here.

 

2. Make it then take a seat

One of the biggest problems in Aussie backyards is big outdoor furniture that clutters precious space in the Outdoor Room…Homeowners often buy as if they’re entertaining for 20! Consider creating built in furniture with AB® Courtyard blocks. This will be a welcome addition to accommodate extra family and friends over summer while also being a relaxing spot for you to enjoy all year round! Check out how to DIY your very own garden bench seat here.

3. Pave the way 

In times gone by, pathways have been a forced consideration from our backyard providing a stable footing to get from one side of the yard to another. Today, paths offer an incredible opportunity to stylise your home with a designer stepping stone path, with countless options for dressing the path like pebbles or Mondo Grass, this quick and easy DIY project will be one to show off to you friends! You can learn more about how to lay pavers here.

LET’S GET STARTED!
