When designing your backyard landscaping the first thing to consider is your yards natural topography, size and shape. It is likely you will want to include some type of seating and entertaining areas where you can incorporate a deck or patio as well as a grill or fire pit. Once your layout is decided, the excitement of planning your vegetation can begin.
A Room with a view
When choosing your flora, be sure to consider your local climate and decide on plants to enhance your backyard environment. Deciduous forest, grassland and desert, make up the majority of the US climates and keeping your region’s weather patterns in mind when deciding on your plant life will help keep your yard healthy through the changing seasons. There are many ways to create an inviting atmosphere; some backyard ideas include: gazebos, arbors, built-in planter boxes, freestanding planters, potted plants, hanging baskets, and additional water features such as fountains and waterfalls.
Incorporate a hot tub in your backyard!
Nothing completes a backyard landscape like a Hot Spring hot tub! Choosing a site for your backyard spa is a personal decision based on your intended use and the existing features of your home and property. When choosing an outdoor location, consider that the closer to the home the spa is located, the easier it will be to go back and forth when used. Be aware of the location of any tree limbs, as you do not want them hanging over your spa. Many times a new spa is placed in an existing lawn area or on a deck. Trees, shrubs and flowers surrounding your spa can create many different atmospheres.
