Backyard. Thursday , April 19th , 2018 - 06:18:59 AM
Another thing you have to ask yourself is, what kind of a backyard do you want? Do you want something green, or do you want a burst of colors? What about seating arrangements? You might want a patio, if you have the space for it.
Transforming your small backyard into something wonderful and functional would only require some good imagination. You can also look for ideas and inspirations from magazines and online resources. Do not limit your creativity just because you have a limited space. You can have an outdoor space that will be the envy of your neighbors if you take the time do a bit of research and consult the experts.
· Although adding exotic plants to your backyard garden may seem like an interesting idea, they can be a high maintenance project all of their own if you do not choose carefully. Consider staying with more basic plants as you are starting out.
Finally it's time to do something with that blank cement patio. Simple ideas to start with include just getting a patio furniture set, and a fire pit. This creates an inviting place for family and friends to spend time outside enjoying each others company, while the warmth of the fire keeps people feeling comfortable and safe well into the night hours. Some people like to get fancy with their designs and this is where the fun begins. Always consider a budget before starting so you don't get carried away. That cement patio can be turned into something truly wonderful to behold in a few key ways. First off, you can section off areas where you want to tear the concrete up and put plants there, then put a small stone wall around them. A cobble stone path would really create character and contrast in the most commonly traveled areas. And what guy wouldn't want a built in outdoor barbecue? Create a common area by combining all these elements and if you want you can go one step further by surrounding this common area with a small wall that can double as a bench.
2) Incorporate movable landscaping into your backyard. By this I mean potted plants, sculptures, fountains, etc. that can be moved. Using what I call movable landscaping, you can quickly and easily change the layout of your backyard. Just as you change the furniture arrangement of your living room, this gives you the ability to inexpensively give yourself a brand new backyard. You can even create partitions that easily separate the different areas of the yard. Potted plants are a must have because they create that lived in feel. They can be brought inside during the winter and make your home more lively during those cold winter months.
On the flip side the worst backyards give an impression of negativity. How can one find peace or relax on a big patch of dirt? It looks like a desert. Writers and philosophers would associate a desert with loneliness and emptiness. The reasons can be many why a backyard is kept in a state of disarray. Time can be a problem in that the home owner is always busy and has no time. Perhaps this suggests someone who needs to take a vacation, or just some time off. It doesn't take too long to plant a flower. Other times the home owner just doesn't care. That's alright because it's their property to do with what they want. The simple fact is that it can be so much more; so much more inviting. The real benefit is that a beautiful backyard really adds to the value of the house too, so why would you not want to make it beautiful?
