Men, Let's Think Outside the Garden Box...What Do You REALLY Want Out of Your Yard?

Posted by Diana Hartman on June 29, 2014 at 5:00 PM

This blog is for all the men out there that would like to create something special in their landscape especially for themselves.  A place created for a man to relax and enjoy the way he wishes.  I was perusing www.houzz.com the other day, a great website to search for home and landscape ideas, and noticed there are many "man cave" ideas, but nothing came up when I searched for "man yard" ideas.  Hmmmm...

I sent out the following request for ideas, "What does a man want out of his yard?  If he could design it for himself, what would he create?  Have fun with it!"

Thank you to all who responded!  I was overwhelmed with exceptional ideas reflecting the following mindset.  Someplace to have fun, relax and practice hobbies.

Go for it!  I will share a gallery of ideas with you and I say go for it!  Who says you need the cookie cutter yard of your neighbors!  Create the yard that they will envy instead!  ...and the yard that you will enjoy most!


A perfectly manicured lawn, cut short and made into a chipping and putting area.

An outdoor pizza oven with a pizza garden nearby; basil, garlic, onions, peppers, tomates...yeah!

A garden shed...nope!  Open the barn style doors and reveal a pool table.  A man's dream realized!

A bar, of course!  How about a beer garden to accompany with your own hops, barley and brewing herbs?

A lazy hammock in which to relax and get away.

A place to waste away some time throwing horseshoes.

These are only a few of the ideas I received...don't limit yourself!  Build a firepit, install the barbecue of your dreams, create a small frisbee golf course or hang a slackline!  Enjoy your creation and remember to keep it low maintenance if you can.  More great ideas???  Please share!
