I love the outdoors. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been craving fresh air, blue skies and wide open spaces. Hi, my name’s Paige Mauch, and I’m the head lackey here at Backyard Benefits. When I’m not out conquering trails or planning for my next thru-hike, I’m hanging out in my favorite place in the world: my own backyard right here in Bismarck, North Dakota.
If you’re anything like me, chances are you were born with a suntan and itchy feet, ready to explore all that the great outdoors have to offer. And it all starts right here in our own backyards, doesn’t it? I love devising new ways to enjoy my yard: obstacle courses, relay races, garden mazes, fairy gardens…the list goes on and on. I’m fortunate to have enough acreage to have a variety of activities on offer simultaneously. But even if you have a small yard, there are endless ideas to revamp it and get active in super fun ways.
I’d love to hear from you, so I hope you’ll holler at me if you have a space you need help with. Or hey, even if you have ideas you’d like to share, I’d love to hear ‘em!
