Having a barbecue in the back yard is perhaps the best way to spend a perfect summer afternoon. They have great friends, food and, above all, a great setting where everything can take place. Correct?
If you’ve ever tried getting your yard “grill ready” in the early summer days, you are not alone. Earlier we will discuss some of the best additions that will really make your garden the perfect place to grill.
Some of the key themes that are highlighted are grills, landscaping tools, and lighting that improve the decor of your back yard overall. It doesn’t take much to prepare your garden for the barbecue season, so get out there and do it!
BBQ and food arrangements
Without a grill there can be no grill. At least not a barbecue I’d ever want to be invited to. At its core, grilling is all about food. So make sure you have the correct grill configuration so you can keep rolling out the burgers.
For the average cook, a large propane grill with a decent cooking area should offer everything you might need in a user-friendly package. You don’t have to mess around with charcoal or wood fires here. Just turn on the propane and start grilling.
If you don’t currently have a propane grill and want to buy one, read this helpful guide for easy grilling to find the one that best suits your needs.
If you prefer charcoal when grilling, you have a great taste, my friend. That’s why it’s always nice to have a grill that can also be used with charcoal. Even if you don’t want to do without a propane / charcoal hybrid grill, a simple Weber kettle grill works perfectly.
Lump coal made of real wood has something that makes the food taste so much better. If you want to take your BBQ food to the next level, you can’t go wrong with charcoal.
You usually don’t need tables to eat. Just make sure there is enough space to line up all the groceries. If you cook for a lot of people, it’s usually a good idea to consider any nutritional problems your guests may have. Providing gluten-free or other accommodation options can really show a person that you pay attention to the finer details.
Nothing shows that you really care about your property than investing in a bit of landscaping. Now you don’t feel like you need to hire a team of landscapers. There are plenty of easy DIY ideas out there that will help make your garden really stand out.
Perhaps try adding a low hanging tree, or even go as far as adding your own pond. There are a million options, so check out some of the best ways to use your garden this summer!
Lights and other decor
In a backyard, you can really decorate creatively. In a way, you bring the inside and outside together. Accents like LED fairy lights or grapevines can brighten up the floor plan of a boring backyard.
Use these trees!
Keep away from birdhouses and similar things as they can attract unwanted pests at sunset. Feel free to hang them up during the day, but when it’s time to celebrate, stow them away.
When talking about unwanted pests, you should always have some kind of defense against mosquitoes. Decoupled lounge areas are ideal, but products like Citronella can be very effective. The smell may be offensive to some, but it even comes in a tiki torch liquid that just looks great at night.
Hopefully you got a glimpse of what makes a garden grill party great, or at least found some interesting ideas. Remember to stock up on propane and go to the store for charcoal as you have a long season of grilling ahead of you.
Don’t be afraid to spice up your garden with a little landscaping. You will be surprised how much character a simple tree can give a garden. When the sun goes down, it’s a perfect time to show off the new lighting system you’ve installed to set the mood just right.
So you have everything you need to host the best BBQ in the garden. Hurry up and don’t forget to send us an invitation.
