It’s clearly summer out there, which means you want to make the most of the times when it’s just warm enough to enjoy the outdoors without getting sunburnt. This is especially true for those who get sunburnt often. You know who I’m talking about: that person who burns like a crispy piece of Canadian bacon at the temperature of a Bic™ lighter. If you want to stay out of the sun, but still enjoy the heat, consider getting some porch screens to enjoy the sun without roasting. For other excellent backyard products check out our 2018 list below and change your summer life for the better. If you want to have fun in the sun (and we know you do) they may help you make this summer the best one ever.
|Trees are great for a lot of things; they give us oxygen to breathe, they provide wood to help us build incredible things, and they can be great for hammocks and treehouses. But what if you only have one tree (the hammock is out) and while strong, couldn’t support a treehouse? Thankfully the smart people over at Treepod have figured out a solution to this problem. They’ve designed what could either be described as a hanging hammock, or dangling treehouse. Either way, they come in a variety of sizes for both kids and adults so everyone can comfortably “hang out,” both literally and figuratively.
|Convertible Picnic Table
|Picnic tables are a great way to bring the family together (as long as one person doesn’t eat all the chip dip before everyone else). Unfortunately they also take up a lot of backyard space. Solution: a convertible bench-to-picnic table allowing you to relax with your friends once all the food is gone. You can enjoy both reading a good book in the sun, or chowing down on those delicious, delicious hamburgers with family or friends.
|LED Outdoor Furniture
|When those long summer days turn into summer nights, you can keep the party going with this variety of led furniture. Cool, hip, and comfortable, these furniture pieces give you just enough outdoor light without keeping the neighbors up. Mix and match by changing the colour settings or keep one colour consistent to go with your party’s theme to add to the atmosphere.
|The Ultimate Grill (No Really)
|No backyard is truly complete without a barbeque, but what grill to choose? If you truly want the ultimate grill (and are really into grilling, like really into grilling because it’s $1700) you can buy this Timberline Wifi Smoker. What makes it so expensive? Aside from the fact it has enough space for eight rib racks, thirty-eight burgers, or fifty-four hotdogs (essentially enough to feed a small village) you can control everything except flipping the burgers from your phone. This includes temperature, smoke settings, and timers all from one app. At the $1700 price tag you might as well invite some famous celebrities to your barbeque if you’ve got enough money to buy one of these.
|The age of machines is here and the first thing they are going to do is take over the world help us with gardening. The Farmbot Genesis XL™ is the last gardening tool you’ll ever need. You can customize it using your computer by dragging and dropping custom seed placement that will automatically display how much space that vegetable will take up in your garden. Once set up, Farmbot will seed, water, and weed your plants for you automatically each day. You can also manually control Farmbot from your phone to check the status of your plants or use the manual controls to more precisely control the farming tool. The Farmbot works particularly well if you have a greenhouse to hold your tiny farm so you can have fresh home-grown vegetables year-round.
|Enjoy having friends over frequently but hate running back and forth between the fridge to grab the drinks? Don’t fret, this ingenious table has a built in icebox container just below. Feeling thirsty? Just reach down to grab a drink—you never have to leave the conversation to grab another beverage.
