How to Build a Backyard Beach

Saturday, December 31, 2016

I’ve always wanted to live on the beach. The sound of the ocean, the scent of sea salt, and the feeling of sand in my toes are some of the greatest pleasures I’ve ever experienced. Unfortunately, my life in mid-west America prevents me from pursuing this dream.

Recently, I got the idea to create a makeshift beach in my backyard. My wife and I agreed that this would be a fun project to do with the kids and a nice luxury to enjoy when we have time to relax. To make my vision a reality, I called the local silica sand suppliers, built a large wooden box to contain the sand, and purchased beach-themed furniture and toys.

When the project was finished, we were very happy with the results. Now we have luau-themed beach parties in the backyard and it’s almost as if our house is just a few feet away from the shore.
