Yard Organization

garden hose organization

Hang your hose on a metal bracket attached to the outside of the house. It's an easy way to maintain your yard organization.

Decide which regions you want in your yard.  You could have some of the following:

  • a children’s area (sandbox, playsets, etc.)
  • a teenager area such as a basketball court,
  • an adult area such as a patio area,
  • a garden area,
  • outdoor dining,
  • a pet area,
  • chicken area,
  • yard storage such as a shed, fake outhouse, or bench for storage

Do you want an outdoor dining area?

When designing your yard regions, put the things you want to see out your back windows.  Do you want to watch your garden grow or your children play?  Most families prefer to see the children play so they put the children’s area where it’s easy to see out the back window and the garden in the more hidden areas.  It’s delightful to watch children play.
