5 Awesome Backyard Additions For Summer

Summer is finally almost here. It's time to toss our jackets deep into the closet, put our swim trunks on and head backyard. But, I bet that the backyard could be even better with these awesome Summer additions.

1. Hot Tub

Who doesn't want to lounge around in a hot tub? Grab your favorite drink, a couple of multi-color waterproof LED lights and enjoy luxury at a fraction of the price of a traditional built-in hot tub.

We can personally attest to the quality of this hot tub, it's even easily capable of having adults sitting on the edge of the inflatable edge. Easy set-up, easy maintenance. Takes about 72 hours to get up to 104 degrees, but once it's there... what a wonderful time.

2. Patio Heater

Once the sun goes down and it cools down a bit outside -- keep the party going longer (and into September/October) with an outdoor propane heater.

3. Slip N'Slide

If you have kids, a slip n'slide is key for any great backyard summer party. If you don't? What's a better way to pass the time right before sitting in your hot tub? A few cold ones and sliding fast down your backyard! Aches and pains will come tomorrow, but today it's all fun.

$64.00 The Team Magnus XXL slip n slide is simply longer and wider than the rest. It measures a hearty 31 feet long and is over 5 feet wide, has double lanes for racing, a central channel which continuously sprays water and an air-filled cushion at the end which works as a crash pad.

4. An Awesome Grill

Now, I know we're heading into some dangerous territory recommending a grill, but I don't think we'll get too many complaints recommending a Weber. 

For everyday use, a 2 burner is usually fine. But I like to make sure I get that extra burner for a couple of different reasons. First, for the couple of weekends where I'm throwing a backyard party, it's so much easier to cook for so many. But my favorite reason is a 3 burner allows for easy and even indirect heating. This allows for the 'slow and low' approach with the benefit of standing outside and enjoying the day or evening.

5. Bluetooth Speaker

No backyard experience would be complete without your favorite songs playing loud! Let the neighbors know you're having a great time (maybe even invite them!) with an inexpensive, outdoor-worthy, bluetooth speaker that actually packs a punch.

I generally am someone who only buys speakers in a store where I can listen to them first -- but this powerhouse was too well reviewed to pass up.
