Manhattan Rent-By-Hour Backyard

Monday, August 15, 2011

Brilliant! Just a few days ago on the 11th of August, a Manhattan company created a cool urban backyard located at 145 Ludlow Street, on the Lower East Side. This is a place for New Yorkers who are stuck in the busy and always crowded concrete jungle to just relax, put their feet up and unwind in this rent-by-hour garden. The basic concept is simple: "Rent by the hour. Build your own backyard. Long live summer."

The basic fee is $50 per hour. They also offer extra's like a play pool, Slip ‘n’ Slide, packed cooler, hammock, a BBQ, a garden hose, sparklers, beer cozies, trampoline, hula hoops, water balloons, lanterns and popsicles.

Lovelies, as one of those people who don't have a backyard I totally love this concept. Would be perfect for a weekend BBQ with friends or fun afternoons with family, don't you think? Would you go to a rent-by-hour garden? xo

P.S: Check out the video as well!

This is a great idea! It's nice to have my own backyard sometimes, but it would also be nice to rent one that you dont have to clean up afterwards or mow!
