3 Outdoor Enhancements to Boost the Romance in Your Backyard

For people who would label themselves “homebodies” but who still like to make the occasional magical night with their significant other, it’s all about finding ways to turn your home into a romantic oasis. Once the kids get in bed and all the household chores are done, don’t you think you deserve to have some one-on-one time spent in a way that reinvigorates your relationship without having to overextend yourself too much? For this reason, enhancing your current outdoor space in such a way that increases its romance is a great option. To help you know what exactly you can do to turn your backyard into your romantic paradise, here are three options you should consider to bring up the romance level at home.


Spending time outdoors is a great way to reconnect with your loved one. Taking time away from electronics and other distractions gives you the relaxation you need to truly spend some quality time together. One great way to facilitate this is to create your own backyard escape in the form of a gazebo. According to ImproveNet.com, to build your own gazebo, it will cost between $5,00 and $8,000 and require a bit of a time commitment. But once you’ve created this space with your own hands, and can enjoy cuddling up with your spouse or dancing through the night by the heat of a patio heater, you’ll feel that your investment has been well worth it.

Fire Pit

Adding a fire pit to your current landscaping is another great way to make your backyard space more romantic. Nothing draws two people together more than snuggling close to an open fire and a camping puffy blanket to keep warm or gazing into its embers and enjoying a beautiful starry night. Plus, a fire pit is a perfect way to indulge in some delicious and romantic treats together as well. According to Alyssa Jung, a contributor to Reader’s Digest, foods like chili peppers, chocolate and bananas are all well known for their romantic elements as well as being delicious when prepared by open flame or cooked with coals.

Hot Tub

To truly make your outdoor living space a romantic paradise, introducing a hot tub or spa into the mix is the ultimate choice. Combine the hot water with a relaxing outdoor setting and you’ve got a recipe for a romantic evening. To pump up the romance even more, Karli Sanders and Briana Mowrey, contributors to HGTV.com, recommend including hot tub accessories like outdoor lighting or fireplaces, a waterfall feature, or privacy partitions to make your spa space as romantic as possible.

If you have outdoor space that you and your significant other want to take full advantage of, consider opting for one of the above ideas to help bring an air of romance right outside your back door.
