Put Up a Soccer Goal

Buying a soccer goal for the backyard will instantly turn it into an inviting space where people will feel obliged to indulge in a friendly soccer match. Better yet, this transformation doesn’t have to take up a ton of space in your backyard. You could opt to go for a goal as small as 4 ft high x 6 ft wide or one as large as 8 ft high x 24 ft wide.

Soccer goals come in a variety of styles, so you are bound to get something that’s to your liking. You may choose a permanent goal, a semi-permanent one or a portable one. Most homeowners tend to prefer portable goals because they are easy to set up and dismantle. Additionally, portable soccer goals can easily be moved around when you’re mowing the lawn or when you need to relocate them.

Spray-Paint a Lawn Twister Game

It’s always a good time whenever Twister is involved. There’s lots of laughter, hilarious body contortions and plenty of falling over. This game is a classic, and it is always a perfect complement for any party or sleepover. So why not move the fun to the backyard? It’s pretty simple because it just involves painting a twister mat on your lawn. To do this, you will need white, blue, yellow and red spray paint and circular stencil which you can cut out of a cardboard box.

For the paint, you could use regular spray paint, which is somewhat permanent until the grass grows out and then the color disappears. Or you could use contractors marking spray paint which washes off. It all depends on whether you want the twister game to last on the backyard for long, or if you are doing a temporary setup for a party that’s coming up.

Put Up an Inflatable Pool

You might not have enough money to build an actual pool in your backyard, but that’s not to mean that you still can’t enjoy the pleasures of having a pool. Some of my best childhood memories involved splashing around in an inflatable pool. So recently I started toying with the idea of buying one for my backyard, and that’s one decision I don’t regret. During my last BBQ party, my friends enjoyed cooling off by dipping their toes in the pool, and everyone had a blast.

Inflatable pools come in all shapes and size so can find one that’s right for you and is just the perfect size for your backyard. You will love how relaxing it is to sit in the pool, either reading a book or sipping away on a cocktail.


In this era where people are often glued to their screens, having a fun outdoor space could be a priceless addition to your home. With just a little creativity, a backyard can easily be transformed into an entertaining outdoor space where you will have plenty of Kodak moments and a ton of memories.
