During 2020, many of us spent an increasing amount of time in the great outdoors due to most other forms of entertainment being affected one way or another by the coronavirus pandemic. While many people were able to find ways to entertain themselves over the first few weeks of lockdown, it became increasingly difficult to find new ways of curing the boredom that we all felt during the following months.
Luckily, there are lots of ways to make your garden more entertaining. Here are three ways you can turn your garden into a place where you can entertain the whole family:
Install a golf green
For decades, people have been playing golf as a way of relaxing outdoors. The only problem is many of us don’t have enough time to devote to traveling to the golf course and playing eighteen holes. Luckily, there is a way of enjoying golf even if you only have an hour, or even less, to spare in your busy schedule. You can turn your garden into your very own golf course. There are many companies that will now do all the hard work of designing your own course for you. For example, SYN Lawn is a company based in Texas that specializes in backyard putting green installation in people’s backyards. They will not only provide you with the very important holes to aim at, but also install the different types of long and short grass that you’d expect to find on any golf course. If you have the room, they can even install small sand bunkers and other pieces of golf furniture to make your course look attractive and authentic. As the putting green is made of artificial grass, it requires very little maintenance and you won’t have to mow it before you play.
Set up an outdoor cinema
When businesses like cinemas were closed down, many people turned to streaming websites like Netflix and Amazon to occupy their time. The only problem is that after watching a few movies, many people started to get bored of staring at the same screen surrounded by the same four walls all of the time. Instead of watching movies on the sofa every night, why not try watching them in your garden. An outdoor cinema is easy to set up. All you need is a projector, which you can now hire or even buy surprisingly cheaply from a lot of retailers. Then, find a big flat surface to point the projector at. If you don’t have one of these, you could simply use a bedsheet.
Cook a meal
One of the best ways your whole family can enjoy your garden is to cook them a meal outside. If your family likes burgers and hotdogs, you could always start a traditional barbeque. If you want to try something different, why not purchase a pizza oven. Whether it’s powered by gas or wood-fired, these are a fun way of making more authentically Italian tasting pizzas.
