10 Great Backyard Landscaping Ideas

 

We all love a beautiful yard and want to be the envy of every neighbour on the street. Whether you are wanting to live in your home or create some curb appeal to stand out from the rest, here are some great landscaping ideas to help you achieve this.

 

1. Paving

A well thought out plan for a garden path can enhance the aesthetic value of a home garden. The path is also an essential design element to add and create a structure and order for your garden. Whether your drive is practicality, functionality or grandeur, there are a lot of ways you can build a beautiful and stunning path.

2. Lush Lawn

Get to know your grass and the species. Regular watering at the right times and proper coverage is key.  you will need to mow your grass often and at the proper length. Never cut more than one -third of its length at a time. You can mulch your cuttings before putting them back on your lawn which will help to keep your soil moisturised and brings nutrients back into the grass. Finally fertilising at least once a year in early spring will help keep your lawn looking beautiful and lush.

3. Retaining Walls

A retaining wall is used to hold back water or earth. It can also be a very decorative part of your garden when landscaping. There are a variety of pine a, brick and limestone materials used to build these grand structures.

If your current lawn is non-existent you can opt to have new turf laid by a professional or choose to have synthetic grass laid if you don’t have the time to water or maintain your lawn. You can also choose to go for synthetic grass

5. Water Features

A beautiful water feature or fountain can bring a pleasing and soothing aesthetic to a garden no matter how large or small.

A fountain can be either majestic or delicate as a water feature. It can be a lavish, dominating spectacle. A fountain, on the other hand, might be viewed as the calming aspect of a botanical, outdoor setting designed to promote mindfulness, such as a Japanese zen garden with a koi fishpond and trickling decorative water feature.

6. Lighting

Garden lighting makes your garden look just that extra touch beautiful when placed in and around your plants in the evenings. Place them around a large tree or plant to enhance the features. There are many options of lights to choose from depending on your style. They key is in the placement of them.

 7. Decking

A great deck will provide the perfect way to add interest and entertaining space to any outdoor space. Whatever shape or size you’re working with, this flat surface will see that you spend more time in it, all year round. Creating different deck ideas with stain, oils and paints can all have a lovely effect and help turn it into a convivial spot for your entire household. It is after all, down to how you want to present yours in your outdoor garden space.

8. Plants

There is nothing more beautiful and pleasing to look at than a garden full of evergreen and seasonal plant. By mixing these two you can assure that you will have lovely plants to admire all year round. I tend to buy plants every season and this assures that I will have blooms for every season.

9. Fire pit

There’s nothing better than gathering with friends and family in our own backyard and making the most of outdoor indoor. Adding the right outdoor heating solutions will ensure your outdoor entertaining zone is perfect all-year round,

Fire pits are the most budget friendly outdoor heating option. They are easy to install and offer a wonderful aesthetic to your garden.

10. Privacy Garden

If you want to make sure that your neighbours can’t see into your backyard and that strangers can’t bother you while you relax out front, a slotted screen is the perfect choice. When you use a slotted screen as a privacy screen, the thickness of the slats will ensure that you will be in charge of your family’s privacy. You can also use large plants to act as privacy screens which is also an easier choice.
