Looking to improve your Outdoor Area?
Having an outdoor living area, you can escape to is a sensational plus to any home. A space to entertain, unwind and relax!
The problem however, with new home builds, it seems that these areas aren’t the sizable backyard our parents grew up with, so we must make the most of what we’ve got.
Landscaping design can be as simple as adding plants, artwork, materials and features to improve the feel and style to an outdoor area.
So here are five outdoor landscaping ideas which you can implement easily and by the end of it you’ll be spending more time relaxing in your garden
Use Potted Plants
The best thing about potted plants is that they can be moved from one place to another, so you can switch it up when you want to change it up a little.
Changing it up will keep it fresh, placing potted plants in symmetry or funk it up with some artistic angles.
Don’t forget you have a range of colour to choose from, both pots and plants.
A Tree Surround for Young Trees
Tree Surrounds are another easy add to your outdoor area and they come in a range of colours and materials. More common they are made from concrete, wrought iron, copper or steel and PVC.
Adding pebbles or stones on top of the soil adds for a better look as well.
The Diversity of Plants
It’s not a bad idea to have three or four types of flowering plants, and remember some plants flower at different times of the year, so a mix and variety is a good idea.
Remember soil and climate play a big part on having healthy plants, take photos of your area and be sure to ask the professionals for their advice when choosing your plants.
Add the aroma to your yard!
Don’t forget to add a few plants which bring great aromas to your garden, like lavender or roses for example.
Having a great smell can add to the overall feel of your outdoor area and garden. Lavender actually reduces stress and anxiety.
Lastly don’t forget contrast and colour, there is a lot that can be said here but it really comes down to personal preference.
There is such a large selection of stones, both in colour and size.
They can be used to create walkways or paths, in the garden bed around plants or cemented and glued in place to create a feature.
A personal favourite of mine are rainbow river rocks, which I’ve used to create a loose pathway.
