Ideas for Backyard Fun

Even though it’s mid-April there are still parts of the country that are buried in snow. Have faith because summer will actually arrive and families everywhere will be enjoying their backyards. As it turns out, whether your yard is a small patch of grass or acres of rolling hills, we all seem to enjoy it the same way.

According to an online survey conducted by Harris Interactive in December on behalf of PLANET, the national trade association for landscape professionals, the no. 1 thing Americans do in their yard is relax, which is just the way it should be! Isn’t that what the lazy days of summer are all about? Spending time with family and friends as well as planting flowers and vegetables were all cited as favorite relaxing activities, according to the survey. Not surprisingly, households with children under age 18 reported spending the most time in their yards.
