How to Enjoy Your Landscape with Family!

In the midst of our chaotic lifestyles sometimes we need to be reminded, it's important to spend time with each other. This can be especially hard since school has started up, sports and activities are in full swing, and everyone is busy - but you need to take some time to really appreciate each other! At Paradise Landscaping, we know that one of the hearts of your home is in your landscape, and that's why we work so hard to create a beautiful landscape at the Lake of the Ozarks for you to enjoy. Here are a few ways you can get outside to appreciate your perfect paradise AND spend time with those that you love.

Have a BBQ

Utilize that beautiful patio area that you have one more time before you have to shut it down for the season! Grab your favorite grilling tools, some delicious food & drinks, and head out to the outdoor space you've loved so much all summer. Did you know that families who eat dinner together are actually getting more benefits than you might think? A few of the perks is that kids are apt to perform better academically and have better relationships with their parents. What a great way this would be to enjoy family day in your backyard paradise!

Play Games

Spending quality time together playing games is a great way to learn more about each other, laugh together, and even get active. There are many fun games that can be enjoyed outdoors. If you like card & board games you can play them out on the picnic table, or you can find giant yard games to play. Giant Jenga, lawn Twister, and corn-hole are just a few of the games you can play in your backyard. If you have small children you can start up a game of hide-and-go seek or tag, just make sure that they know where the boundaries are, or that the gate is closed so they don't wander off accidentally.

Take A Dip In the Pool

Is your pool still open? You can take this chance to get out and enjoy it one last time before you winterize your pool. Play some of your favorite games and enjoy the sunshine before it's time to close it up. When you're ready to get your pool closed, don't forget to call Paradise Landscaping! We provide the best pool winterization at the Lake of the Ozarks, and it's hassle free for you!

Watch The Stars

Star watching can be a fun family activity that is also educational as well. Have everyone put their pajamas on, grab their favorite blanket, and lay out on the soft grass to observe the stars. You can talk about constellations, learn more about what stars are made of, and maybe even get to see a shooting star. If your children are younger you might even get lucky when the fall asleep! If you don't know any of the constellations you can download applications on your phone that will point them out when you aim it at the sky!

Go On a Scavenger Hunt

You can go looking for fun insects and plants throughout your yard, or you can plan a whole game by hiding cards around the yard and giving your kids clues to find the next one. At the end reward everyone with a special treat like ice cream in the backyard or some other special treat.

While you may want your landscape to be beautiful so that it has good curb appeal, you also want it to be beautiful so you can enjoy it! Take some time to get out and not only enjoy your outdoor space, but enjoy your lovely family as well. There's no time like the present to make memories and enjoy the ones you love - and your landscape too!
