Summer’s in full swing. It’s time for barbecues, bonfires, cold drinks, and relaxing by the pool — or getting in if the water’s fine.
But how’s your backyard hangout area looking? Could it use some new scenery? Some new furniture?
If so, you don’t have to look far for ideas. Below is a list of our top 10 Amazon finds to beautify your backyard oasis. Grab some of these for more comfort and more fun times in the sun.
1. Turquoise Folding Adirondack Chair
The key to a backyard oasis is comfort mixed with simplicity. That’s what you’ll find with this Adirondack chair. It requires no maintenance (save the occasional cleaning), yet it’s quite comfortable. Plus, it’s durable against the elements.
Thanks to its lightweight and folding capabilities, storage is simple as well.
2. Folding Ottoman
Want more comfort while lounging in that Adirondack chair? Grab one of these folding ottomans and kick your feet up. Like the chair, these ottomans are durable and easy to maintain, and they fold for quick and easy storage.
3. Char-Broil Stainless Steel Propane Grill
You can’t have summer without grilling. Hot dogs, burgers, ribs, corn, you name it. If you plan on having any barbecues this summer, consider this propane grill by Char-Broil. With porcelain-coated, rust-resistant grates, you’ll never have to worry about rust. The grill even comes with a side burner if you need extra space.
This grill stands up to any inclement weather, too, with a stainless steel finish that combines durability and style.
4. A Rubber Outdoor Doormat
Summer usually sees people running in and out of the house all day. That means dirt, debris, and pool water can get tracked in — unless you order this Gorilla Grip rubber doormat. The rubber ensure durability without sacrificing flexibility while the fabric on top traps debris.
All you need to do to clean it is to vacuum it or shake it off into a garbage bin. Then its back to keeping your house clean.
5. Stylish Wind Chimes
Wind chimes add a nice touch of musicality to the summer breeze, but most chimes are subtle. Nothing against them, but some people want a bit more visual enhancement, too.
You can get that with these Bellaa rainbow wind chimes. With its beautiful, soothing sounds and bright colors, it adds the perfect way to relax as the breeze cools you down on a hot summer day.
6. Decorative Plant Pot
Adding some greenery to your backyard area? You could enhance the look even more by putting your plants in a decorative pot like this one. You can get this pot in three different sizes, and it’s quite durable.
You don’t even need a plant to make use of this pot, though. It serves as a piece of backyard art on its own.
7. Ground Lights
There’s little reason to go inside as soon as the sun goes down in the summer. Nighttime swimming, bonfires, and stargazing are all fun things to do after dusk.
Consider some ground lights to guide your way. But not any old lights — why not some solar lights? These lights charge during the day when the sun is out, allowing them to shine on all night long. Yet if you want to turn them off, all you have to do is flick a switch.
These lights in particular are waterproof, too, so no need to worry about rain or pool water damaging them.
8. Waterproof LED String Lights
Why stop at ground lights? If you have a pool, patio, or deck area to illuminate, grab some of these Brightech Ambience Pro LED string lights.
Not only do these lights make a dark night bright, but they’re all energy efficient — saving you money and helping the planet. They never get hot, either, even after hours of continuous use.
These heavy duty lights will stand up to the rain and have withstood winds up to 50 miles per hour, so don’t worry about damage. Plus, the manufacturer offers a 3-year warranty for any defects or if the light stops working.
9. Bench-Storage Hybrid
Seating is a top priority in your backyard. More storage never hurts, though. But what if you could combine both of these?
You can if you buy this Keter Eden 70 gallon storage bench. It can fit up to three people comfortably with a weight limit of 771 pounds.
As for the storage, the large amount of under-bench space allows you plenty of storage versatility. Pool toys, gardening tools, towels, whatever you need to store, you’ll have room.
Plus, the storage compartment locks, and the bench’s construction is quite strong. Your belongings are safe in here.
10. A Hammock
Quiet, peaceful summer days call for reading, relaxing, and even sleeping outside. In the case, you may want to buy this 9-foot double hammock. It’s 450-pound capacity means you can seat two people in it with relative comfort.
It comes in many colors and is made of durable fabric. Perfect for taking a long nap outside or catching some of the sun’s rays — or both.
