Fall is a great time to enjoy backyard living in Phoenix. Upgrade your outdoor area and enjoy the Phoenix weather with friends and family!

Want to transform your garden so that it’s both beautiful and totally unique?  Then here are 3 different ideas that you can consider bringing to your backyard to make that space fun, relaxing, and 100% “you”:

1. Life-Sized Games

If you and your pals have a penchant for playing games in the garden, then you can go way beyond a game of bocce ball or horseshoes. Why not create your own giant chessboard or checkerboard in your backyard out of stones or paint your patio?  Or, for those who are a bit more adventurous (and a whole lot more flexible), consider breaking out some spray paint and make your very one Twister board on your lawn (you can easily create a stencil with some cardboard or paper).

2. Warm Up By The Fire

It doesn’t matter what season it is, an outdoor fireplace is a hit year round.  Whether you plan on using a portable fireplace or having one permanently installed in your backyard, all you need to do is draw some chairs and some tables around and you’ll immediately create a homey, warm atmosphere in your outdoor space.

If you don’t want to build an outdoor fireplace, consider creating a firepit area by fitting the portable fireplace within a table.  All you need is an old table, measuring tape, and a saw.  Simply measure the diameter and circumference of the portable fireplace, and then cut out a hole in the old table that will accommodate the size of the fireplace.

TIP:  Brick fireplaces are all the rage this year, and you can easily make one out of old bricks and build it on your existing patio for cheap.

3. Add Some Comfy Chairs

One of the hottest trends for backyards and gardens right now is to bring the comfort of the indoors, outdoors.  Visit any garden shop and you’ll be treated to a vast selection of plush, cozy outdoor furniture that you can use to create a warm and welcoming seating area in your garden.
