It’s summer in Georgia and that means it is time to get outside and play. If you are looking for ideas to up your summer fun this season, you don’t need to look any further than the trees in your own backyard. They don’t just provide shade on the sunniest of days, they are also great for hanging tire swings and hiding behind during an afternoon water balloon fight. Gordon Pro Tree Service wants to help you use your trees to maximize your fun this summer.
A Treehouse for Any Age
It doesn’t matter how old you are, a treehouse always equals fun all year round. These days, treehouses come in all shapes and sizes and with plenty of available accessories. If you are looking for a great DIY project to complete with your kids this summer, there are plans available for free or purchase online.
Hook Up a Hammock
There is nothing more relaxing on a hot summer Georgia day than relaxing in the shade in a hammock with a good book and glass of lemonade. With the variety of fabrics and materials hammocks come in, it is easy to find the perfect one for you and at the perfect price point.
Install a Backyard Swing
Who doesn’t love a good backyard swing? If you don’t have a playset in your backyard, with some wood, rope, and a sturdy limb, you can have the perfect swing for kids or adults in no time. For added fun, look into swings that fit multiple people, so the whole family can enjoy it at the same time.
Educational Fun and Games
Sure, trees make for a great hiding place and can serve as the base in a game of hide and seek, but you can also use them as a fun learning tool for your children. Go on a tree hunt and see how many native Georgia trees you can identify, examine the bark of different trees, or grab some leaves and create leaf rubbings. Summer is also the perfect time to learn about how to care for trees or create backyard crafts using fallen pine cones and twigs.
Having fun with your family this summer doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. If you have the right trees all you need is a little ingenuity to make the most of the season. If you have any questions about tree care or need summer tree services, give Gordon Pro Tree Service a call today.
