How to create a techy, eco-friendly backyard

As we enter summer, we’ll all be spending more time outside. That makes this the perfect time to create an outdoor oasis in your backyard.

Technology can enhance your outdoor space where you’ll want to relax with your friends and family all summer long. And you can do it in a way that is good for the environment, too.

“Backyards have become an extension of the home,” said Javier Davila, a Best Buy Home Expert from Laredo, Texas. “When I create a solution for a customer, it’s vital to think of the experience of outdoor entertaining.”

Here are a few products that can help transform your yard into an eco-friendly retreat.

  • Enbrighten Vintage Café LED lights – You’ll feel like you’ve been whisked away to a cozy European café with these timeless lights. Create the vibe while saving energy, as LED bulbs use less than traditional ones.
  • Ion Audio Outdoor Speaker – Every oasis needs music. Whether you’re jamming to classical music or classic rock, this Bluetooth speaker brings the party. It not only blends into your landscaping, but its rechargeable battery is powered with its embedded solar panel.
  • Sun Ray Solar Lighted Umbrella – Stay cool under the shade of this umbrella during the day. And when the sun goes down, the lights go on, powered by solar energy.
  • AZ Patio Fire Pit – Nothing says summer like a bonfire. Gas fire pits are better for the environment because they produce fewer pollutants than burning wood. You can also add onto the ambiance with recycled fire pit glass!
