4 Ways to Contribute to a Communal Yard Space

Shared Yard Space

More and more housing companies in the Boston area are turning away from homes with their own gardens to more vertical houses with shared, co-operative yard spaces. If you live in a home with spare green space, you might be wondering how best to contribute to it. Most co-ops ask their users to bring an item as a token of membership, so here are 5 great ways to contribute.


There’s nothing better than a warm summer’s day outdoors with a barbecue. Therefore, contributing the BBQ itself could be a very valuable contribution. Even better, you could build your own using brick and mortar, as this is a great excuse to be outside and to rope in your neighbors to get to know them a little better.

Garden Furniture

If you’re looking to provide your shared space with a truly practical gift, there’s nothing better you could do than purchase outdoor furniture from a specialist like Garden Furniture This could be the beginning of a new social space for you and your neighbors, so providing a great place to relax would be a good start.

Fun and Games

On the other hand, sometimes a serious, practical gift isn’t necessarily the right approach. Instead, you could provide the entertainment for the co-op space. A sustainably-made swing set for the kids or a set of goals for a weekly street soccer match might be a better path to tread, particularly if you’re looking to bring your community closer together.

Fruit and Veggie Garden

A fun yet useful approach might be to plant some fruit trees or a vegetable patch. That way, you and your neighbours could prosper from the annual crop, and meanwhile, you could tend to the garden as a group, providing everybody with plenty of exercise and time outdoors.
