You don’t have to be a mid-afternoon tea drinking, scone-eating, pastel-colored-pants-wearing member of the royal family to play and enjoy croquet. It’s gaining popularity across all the socioeconomic boards. In fact, this Oregon paper has shown you how easy and inexpensive it is to set up in a smaller yard.

If you’ve lived through a southern summer, you know how hard it can be to enjoy the outdoors without melting. So this one is for all those who love being outside, but feel as if they might be allergic to the sun. A backyard theater has a lot of appeal. They’re cozy, convenient, and cost-effective. A backyard theater is reminiscent of an old drive-in and brings people together. You have a little more control over what happens at your movie.

Another lawn activity gaining popularity in the southern and midwest area of the US is taking a page out of the farmers almanac and growing a seasonal garden.

The spring vegetables that are best to plant in the areas that Fairway Lawns serves are beets, carrots, cauliflower, and celery.
