While the weather is pleasant all year long at Whitney Ranch, summer is an especially great time to soak up some rays and enjoy the great outdoors. We’re here to help you welcome the sun with these tips on how to make the most of your home’s spacious outdoor area.
Invite Feathery Friends Over
If you have been wanting a peaceful place that’s perfect for taking a break, there are plenty of easy and fun ways you can add some extra tranquility to your backyard. We recommend hanging up some hummingbird feeders in easy-to-see spaces. While it might take a few days for the flying fellas to find your feeders, once they do, you can expect a daily, colorful show as they zip around your yard. Try setting up a lounge chair nearby so you can relax and enjoy the natural scenery. Want to make your own hummingbird nectar to fill your feeders? Check out this easy recipe!
Have you been wanting to add some cute decorations to your backyard without breaking the bank? Upcycling everyday household goods is a fantastic way to get your creative juices flowing, while adding a bit of whimsy to your outdoor area. Instead of buying pots for your garden, try planting veggies in vintage cans or a bright pair of rainboots. If you’re getting rid of an old dresser, try using the drawers as herb beds. Your imagination is the limit! To help get you started, here is a great list of unique upcycling ideas for your backyard.
Bring the Bar to Your Backyard
This summer offers an excellent opportunity to have friends and family over to create some lasting memories. Imagine their surprise when they walk into your backyard and see a DIY outdoor bar prepared for them — with seating and ice cold beverages! Setting up this fun spot is not only a way to add amazing ambiance, but it also let’s you and your guests enjoy refreshing drinks without having to run back into the kitchen for refills. This article has some creative DIY outdoor bar designs to help get you started.
Your home at Whitney Ranch comes with a spacious outdoor area that is ideal for any of these projects! Besides your backyard, there are plenty of other amazing places in the community where you can head outside and have a fun time, including the miles of local trails or the pool at The Ranch House.
