The days are long and the sun is bright; it’s the perfect time for your Sims to enjoy The Sims 4 Backyard Stuff*, coming July 19th!

Looking to update your backyard? Additional customization options for your outdoor spaces await, with bright colors and patterns adding a splash of excitement. You’ll be able to decorate with everything from spinning wind catchers to spitting frog fountains and scented flowers, all helping set a casual backyard vibe. When your Sims’ friends and family drop by for a cookout, they’ll be showing off their stylish new fashions as they sit around the new umbrella table that accommodates meal servings for up to six Sims. An assortment of comfortable clothing comes in vibrant summer prints, and relaxed hairstyles are available in natural and ombre colors.

While it’s great to look great, it’s the fun new activities and objects which make for a memorable backyard experience. First, you’ll definitely want to clear space for the Lawn Water Slide. Sims will flip out (sometimes quite literally!) over the fun they’ll have while sliding and performing tricks on a sunny afternoon. All that exercise can build up a real thirst, and the new drink pitcher will definitely help you quench it. Mix up refreshing recipes like lemonade, iced tea,and more, then pour over ice and enjoy.

For a rejuvenating experience in the backyard, you can sit back and tune in to the sound of nature all around you. Place the new bird feeder in your backyard, and you’ll be serenaded by the chirps of bluebirds, cardinals, and finches as they fly in for a bite to eat. You can add the new wind chime to your backyard as well for a soothing Sim-made melody. Choose from bamboo, ceramic, or metallic chimes… pair them together if you like, or even set the length of the rods to adjust the chime’s pitch. It’s guaranteed to be music to your ears (and perhaps a nightmare for your neighbors).
