Put up Night Lights: It’s amazing how much night lights can enhance the essence of a backyard. Simply stringing your deck with party lights or putting gold Christmas lights on your trees is one of the simplest and cheapest ways to make your backyard sparkle. For effect, you may also put up tiki torches, making your deck look like something from a tropical island. If you are worried that your lights will attract too many insects, make sure one of the lights you put up is a bug light that’ll teach ’em to trespass.
Add Some Water: For those of you who live in a landlocked area, bodies of water might not exactly be a hop, skip, and a jump away. Instead of longing for an ocean or a lake, bring a mini-version to you by putting in a fountain or a pond. A fountain or a pond can enhance your backyard, giving it a watery essence it wouldn’t otherwise have. These might not be much like the ocean – they won’t allow you to snorkel or surf – but, look on the bright side: you won’t have to worry about sharks.
Now, let’s go even beyond that and get into an area where you can get really creative and let your personality shine through…. garden art. There are no rules whatsoever here. Simple things like adding tiki torches along a path can make a real statement. Want to get more out there, create a faux Mayan ruin surrounded by tropical-looking foliage. If you don’t have a pool, build a small pond complete with cascading waterfall. Or, suspend a comfortable hammock between trees, complete with a fake (or real!) parrot watching over you while you relax. Remember, no rules here. This is all about you. Have fun.
Surf the internet and look for the best suppliers for backyard tents and lights. These suppliers have really good ideas where to set up what you need. To avoid overlapping or over-decorating your backyard, try first to conceptualize your idea of what a good backyard party is. It is best to write down everything that you need and want. Some suppliers or rental companies might take advantage of your lack of preparation and charge you with stuff you do not need. Think before saying yes or agreeing to their suggestions. Although they know more about party needs, it is still better for you to have your own concept.
The backyard is the perfect place to create your favorite wildlife habitat. Essentially, a backyard habitat is a haven for whichever wildlife you are catering for.

A backyard habitat is a great way to preserve and promote a healthy environment.
