If you’re fortunate enough to have a backyard, it is worth treating this area just as well as any other room in your home. With spring only a few months away, you may want to start thinking about how you can spruce up your yard for those summer barbies or just soaking in the rays with a good book. And as social restrictions start to ease in Australia, you may be eager to entertain friends and family at home again. Spending time outdoors is healthy for your wellbeing and you can’t really put a price tag on that, but a budget does come in handy especially with such high price tags on furniture. 

We’ve put together our favourite backyard musts that are worth every penny. Hopefully you can agree!


The number one must - an outdoor dining set. It’s so much more pleasant eating outdoors in the summer from breakfast to late night drinks. Even if you don’t have a big family or a big circle of friends, a set to accommodate at least 6 people will come in handy as it may just motivate you to host a dinner party.


If you’re a foode & enjoy entertaining guests, a proper grill set up is essential. When the weather is warm, you’ll be craving a barbie!


Sometimes protection is necessary and that applies to both sunshine & rain. An umbrella allows you to enjoy your backyard regardless of weather conditions.


Summer nights in the backyard are beautiful...as long as you can see! With the right lighting, you can create a relaxed ambiance. Fairy lights are always a favourite.
