    19 Snazzy Things That'll Turn Your Backyard Into A Summer Sanctuary

    BRB, taking a season-long staycation.

    1. A string of Edison bulb lights that'll add some ~illumination~ to your patio and really set the mood for those sweet summer nights. They're waterproof, so you'll be able to chillax all night, rain or shine.

    2. An outdoor rug that'll cozy up your entire backyard and make you want to spend more time out there. It's easy to clean and UV-resistant, meaning the design won't fade in the sun.

    3. A quilted hammock that'll turn your outdoor space into a literal sanctuary. It comes with a carrying case, so you can pack it up and take it to a friend's house or to the cottage.

    4. A stylish bird feeder that'll bring all the birds to the yard (🎶and they're like, it's better than yours🎶). It's got handy windows, so you can see if the seed supply is running low.

    5. A pop-up gazebo with mesh netting that'll be your go-to hiding spot from those evil bloodsuckers (mosquitos, obvi). It's also perf for dodging the rain or enjoying some snacks in the shade.

    6. An outdoor pillow that'll make outside feel as comfy as inside. It's made with weather-resistant fabric and you can even use it to rest your head while you're chillin' on a floatie in the pool (it's life-changing, trust).

    7. An outdoor pizza oven that'll save you big bucks on pizza delivery. It'll reach 950°F in 15 minutes and will cook your 'za in just 60 seconds, so you won't have to wait around for your tasty creations.

    8. A portable smokeless fire pit so you don't have to worry about ash getting everywhere. You can set it up in two minutes, which is great for when you get a sudden craving for s'mores.

    9. A set of self-watering planters that'll help you take better care of your outdoor greenery if you occasionally forget to water it (listen, we've all been there). The double-layered design holds extra water at the bottom of the pot, so your plants won't, y'know, drown.

    10. A waterproof bistro table that can be used as an outdoor bar, or perhaps a cute dessert table for when guests come over. It also has a footrest that'll make it comfy enough to use as extra seating.

    12. A hanging chair that'll put your summer in full swing (get it? Lol). The oversized cushion will have you surrounded by softness while you're reading a book, scrolling through TikTok, or even taking an afternoon snooze.

    13. A variety pack of beginner-friendly vegetable seeds that'll help you kickstart your garden adventure. It comes with tons of different options, so you'll be able to grow everything from cucumbers and corn to cherry tomatoes and carrots.

    14. A pack of sunflower solar lights that'll add the right amount of charm to your lil' oasis. Flowers you won't have to plant and lights you won't have to remember to unplug? Yes, please!

    15. A set of citronella candles that'll smell good, keep the 'squitos away, and create a cozy ambiance. Reviewers say the scent is pretty mild, so you don't have to worry about it overwhelming your nostrils.

    16. A small jute ottoman that can be used as a footrest, aesthetic decor, or even as a little table. When the season is over, you can transfer it indoors and make use of it all year 'round.
