Most everyone loves to be outdoors and enjoy their lawn. But, did you know there are countless things to do on your lawn? There are things to do from mowing to playing, to just relaxing on your lawn. Here we are going to talk about a few things you can do to enjoy your lawn.
First, we will start with some of the fun things to do on your lawn. Entertaining friends and family is a big part of using your backyard lawn. Families and friends have picnics, cookouts, fire pits, along with games such as croquet, corn hole, bocce, horseshoes, kickball, sandboxed, trampolines, jungle gyms, and swing sets. But did you know some people put in miniature golf courses and gaga ball (a fun game for one to a hundred players, children, and adults, similar to dodgeball, played on the ground) courts?
Other things to do on your lawn is to plant in beds around and throughout your lawn are trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals. Instead of just planting what your neighbor has planted, try native plants to Virginia. Try perennial plants like Solomon’s seal, red bee balm, Joe Pye weed, triliums, Rudbeckia hirta ‘Cherry Brandy’, to name a few. American beauty bush, Virginia sweerspire, mountain laurel, spicebush, and black haw are a few native shrubs for the landscape. Red buckeye, downy serviceberry, eastern redbud, white fringe tree, and eastern hophornbeam are a few native trees. Several local nurseries have many native plants available. It is not advisable to dig any of these up from the wild.
Another thing to do in your lawn is to just relax. Whether it is on a blanket, a lounge chair, or a hammock, it is sometimes just good to lay back and listen to nature. You can listen to the birds, squirrels, chipmunks, or the sound of a running brook. Some people enjoy the sound of running water as they relax in their lawn, such as a water fountain or manmade brook flowing in their lawn. I’m feeling more relaxed and sleepy just thinking about it.
Still, others just like to watch the grass grow. A good healthy lawn is much better to look at then one full of weeds and bare spots.
