Don’t Skip Yard Work
Don’t Skip Yard Work
How long ago did you last have a small gathering of your friends over at your place on a lazy Sunday, played some music and had a barbecue out by your yard? We estimate it to be probably some time ago now. Not that we are being accusatory in any way. Our lives have become increasingly fast paced and the only time we can have a real sit down is over the weekends, in a crowded bar that does not seem to grasp the concept of ‘volume control’. There was a time when you could sit back in a Mumbai local or could visit Marine drive and find it to be almost empty and serene. We ask you, why can’t you bring that nostalgia to your backyard or your patio?
Any yard, be it out front or in the back, harbours the potential to be a place of relaxation and a tiny haven for entertaining guests in a casual intimate setting, away from the chaos of everyday life. Depending on the size of the yard, your budget and the look you want to go for, there are a number of ways you can turn that boring grey space into your own personal retreat for the summer.
Front yards have marginally different requirements in terms of design and allocation of space to any possible furniture that you want to put there. Considering that it is the first thing that any potential guests see as they approach your house, it is critical that you at least put some effort into its maintenance. Having said that, it is understandable that it is not always possible to trim the grass out in the front yard or exude an organised appearance to the place, especially if you have a family, with the added responsibility of children. At Thera, we provide a solution to that problem with our product line of artificial turf. Perfectly applicable for gardens, patios and, even, balconies, our artificial turf can also withstand usage in public areas such as parks, school yards. Allowing for several advantages that free you up to spend less time on yard work and more time with your family on lazy weekends, artificial turf requires virtually no maintenance with an estimated shelf life of 15 to 20 years. Additionally, the product is pet friendly, have no presence of lead or any other material that could prove to be a serious threat to your pet. Merely installing artificial turf on your front yard can bring about a vast difference to the look and feel of the space. Consider, for example, that front yard will appear much better maintained without you having to mow or water the grass frequently. Have a swing set installed there could only serve to help matters and elicit a sense of appreciation on the part of your guests.
Turning to the backyard, a perfect getaway for your own personal time, wooden flooring can be utilized to lend an old world feel to the entire space. Made to fit custom specifications and available in a wide range of shades and grains, our line of wooden flooring come from a range of differing types of wood, including Burma Teak and Black Palm, amongst others. While a backyard can avail of the privacy that is not usually achievable by the front yard, it is important to remember that guests do come over and, more often than not, they would want to spend time in backyard that has the added elevation of having beautiful wooden flooring. It is advisable to put down a bench, painted in a simple and understated colour, preferably in white or to have a small table, along with a few chairs, set for any chance gatherings that may occur.
