    21 Products That'll Help You Enjoy Your Backyard Even More

    Items to help you garden, play, relax, and simply enjoy your outdoor space.

    1. A vertical planter that'll let you grow a veritable bounty of greenery, herbs, and flowers — even if your outdoor space is limited.

    2. A set of cement wall planters to adorn the outside of your home with a touch of greenery, making it more — well — homey.

    3. A backyard soccer net for impromptu matches where you don't have to argue about what *actually* counts as a goal.

    4. A raised garden bed so you can cultivate your very own plant babies. Totally worth getting a bit dirty if it means your little seedlings thrive!

    5. And a multi-pack of seeds to plant a lively garden full of delicious food! If you haven't grown your own veggies before, I cannot help but recommend it. I grew one good tomato two years ago and am still beaming with pride.

    6. String lights that are a staggering 48 feet long so you can transform your patio space into a private outdoor bistro. Nothing better than hilarious and casually chic promise of dining al fresco.

    7. A cornhole set so you don't have to journey out into the world to play your favorite lawn game. I continue to be mystified that throwing beanbags never ceases to be fun.

    8. A garden and outdoor candle that uses a blend of citronella, cedarwood, peppermint, lemongrass, and geranium essential oils to keep mosquitos and flying insects at bay.

    9. An 18-inch charcoal grill, because "grilled" is one of the best genres of food, hands-down.

    10. A three-piece bistro patio set — I can see it now. You, a pal, a charcuterie board, and this pretty set enjoying a perfect evening outdoors.

    11. A waterproof outdoor Bluetooth speaker so you can pump up the jams without worrying about harming a dainty little electronic. This thing is ROBUST.

    12. An inflatable lounge chair you inflate just by whipping it in the wind — a sweet, a low-maintenance lounging option for your backyard and beyond.

    13. A nine-pattern sprinkler that yeah, will water your lawn, but most importantly will be fun as heck to run through to cool off on any hot summer day.

    14. Or an inflatable palm tree sprinkler if you don't even want to pretend that you're doing this for your grass' health and just wanna splash!

    17. An outdoor rug perfect for anyone who wants to turn their yard into a veritable second living room.

    18. A bocce ball set so you can take your housemates on in a classic, relaxing game. Any game you can play outdoors with a frosty drink in one hand is an A+ from me.

    19. A teardrop lounge chair with cushions you'll want to curl up in with a good book any time you have a spare hour.

    21. An ENO Double Nest hammock so you can chillax between almost any two sturdy surfaces in your outdoor space. Nap time, baby.

    Enjoy spending every second of free time you have outdoors! I know I am. 😎
