Neighbors can be competitive about the dumbest stuff . . . you mention that you haven’t had 15 minutes to pick some weeds, and they talk about how exhausting it’s been installing a new sauna in their backyard.
A recent poll asked people what outdoor features they’d want . . . specifically to make their neighbors jealous. Here’s the list:
1. A guest house or gazebo to hang out in.
2. A hot tub.
3. A pizza oven.
4. A cozy seating area.
5. An outdoor drinks bar.
6. An outdoor projector to show movies.
7. Outdoor heating . . . like those restaurant patio heaters.
8. A water feature . . . like a pool or fountain.
9. A fire pit.
10. An outdoor dining area.
