Man working on a backyardDo you have an unkempt yard or are you considering redesigning yours? If you haven’t come up with a design yet, then you might just get a few ideas from this list.

Fire Pit

A nice yard doesn’t always have to be extremely fancy. It can be a simple one with just a few outdoor benches that you can find at a store like Yardly’s. If you want to dress the space up a bit, you can add a fire pit. It’s a hot design at the moment and it’s perfect for backyard camping.

Kitchen and Dining

Let’s give in to the typical Aussie stereotype and put a grill alongside an outdoor dining area. You can even go the extra mile and install an outdoor kitchen. While you’re at it, add an outdoor bar to complete the beach vibe. Who said al fresco dining had to be expensive?

Tree Houses

Are you a sucker for nostalgia? Building an old-school tree house might just do the trick. If you’re not a fan of traditional design, now’s your chance to build the tree house of your dreams! You can also build a play area in lieu of a tree house. That should be a great way to keep the kids at home but out of the house.


Australian summers can be excruciating but that shouldn’t stop you from relaxing in the garden. Install a pergola and cover it with flowers. You can also string a hammock or put a daybed under all that shade and you’re bound to have a great nap.


The gazebo from The Sound of Music is just as popular as the film. If you love the film so much, you could always put a gazebo in your yard. Fair warning though: Dancing and jumping in the gazebo is usually ill-advised.

There are a hundred more ideas for backyard designs on the internet. If you start working on your yard now, it might be ready just in time for Christmas and summer!
