With so many potential listings to browse on Peerspace, you might be overwhelmed at the prospect of finding the right listing for your needs.

After heading to our homepage, the next step to renting a backyard for a day is to start a search and then narrow down your search results. This way, you only have to browse through listings that suit your preferences, budget, style, and more.

Next, head to the “More filters” section and check off “Backyard” under “Outdoor Spaces” to ensure you only receive results that come with backyards. You can narrow your search even further according to about a dozen other criteria, such as ensuring your backyard comes with a pool and/or a grill. Once your search has been limited to more suitable results, looking through individual listings can be pretty fun.

Every listing has high-quality photos of the space along with in-depth descriptions of what you can expect and what it has to offer. Many listings also come with honest reviews from people who have rented the spaces in the past. The reviews give you an even better insight into what the experience would be like without actually having to visit in person.

If all these details aren’t enough, remember that you can easily reach out to the host directly through their listing, too.

What it will cost you to rent a backyard for a day

Just as there’s a huge variety of backyard spaces available to rent for a day on Peerspace, so there is a wide range of prices.

Overall, you can expect to pay about $100 per hour, although that will depend on the venue’s available space (in terms of square footage as well as if you have home access during your rental). Backyards with amenities, like furnished patios, pools, and lawn games will likely cost more than just a big empty plot of land.

Let’s look at the prices of the backyards we mentioned above to see how they stack up. The two lowest-priced backyard rentals are the unique hidden gem outdoor event space in Seattle, WA at $75 per hour and the rustic backyard garden in Logan Square, Chicago, IL at $90 per hour.

In the mid-range pricing tier, we have the Las Vegas vintage home and the garden house for creative and social events in Washington, D.C., both of which cost $150 per hour.

Finally, the top-tier backyards! The all-inclusive backyard event space in Tomball, TX costs $175 per hour, while the luxurious garden oasis with a pool in Australia costs $220 per hour. You can see by looking at these two backyards that their names aren’t just descriptors, they really are all-inclusive, luxurious spaces with amazing style and amenities are a price tag to match!
