Turning Your Backyard Into a Dream Landscape6:02 PM
Add Stepping Stones
In many cases, the backyard is simply a wide-open space with no discernible walkways. Instead of pouring an expensive sidewalk, turn to stepping stones as an alternative. Create a meandering walkway between your house and a patio arrangement by setting the stones flush with the ground's level height. The stones weather almost any storm, and they'll remain in place over the years. Visitors will always know where to step as you entertain them on the weekends.
Install Awnings and Umbrellas
The piercing sun can be uncomfortable on certain days so shade parts of the yard with awnings and umbrellas. Awnings attach to your home, and they extend outward for shading purposes. Umbrellas tend to be more versatile because you can add them to nearly any part of the property. Allow some sun to shine through for your grass and other plants. Any visitors will enjoy sitting in the shade on those hot, summer days.
Invest in a Deck Installation
If your home is situated on a slight hill, the backyard may not be comfortable for a standard patio set. Consider a deck installation with adjustable legs. Learn more about these deck systems that are customized to your landscape by talking to a sales agent. The deck itself will be perfectly level so that you can add furniture and a barbecue as desired.
Plant and Pot Favorite Greenery
Your backyard might have a few plants, such as bushes and grass, but you want some color to bring the area to life. Add a flower garden or pot a few annual plants in the space. Colorful flowers are possible almost year-round. You simply need to keep up with the watering and fertilizing processes. Adding potted plants around the yard will only improve its appearance.
Keep up with the growing plants by hiring a landscaper or committing to the work yourself. During the spring and summer, those plants can grow almost exponentially. With regular trimming, the backyard can remain a comfortable retreat for the entire family.
