Winter is nearly over and the warmer weather is coming soon! If you’ve been planning to make your lawns beautiful for the summer months, the springtime is the best season to begin considering all of the options for designing a perfect landscape to complement your home. Here are a few of the many options to consider as the warm weather soon approaches.
Finding the Perfect Area
Unless you’ve already had a specific area of your front or back yard in mind for a beautiful landscape design, the most important (and fun) way to begin is to look around and consider what spots may be best for your creation. One key tip to consider is using your home itself as the basis, or foundation, of where a new design could go. With that in mind, pay close attention to the lighting, tree formations and overall existing natural beauty of your yard and utilize those spots as a “vertical point” for the new design. This will aid in maintaining an organic feel to the new landscape and really make it feel like an extension of your home.
Considering the Many Options
Once you’ve decided on the best area for the new landscape design, you’ll have endless options on how to best utilize the space. Aside from the floral and gardening architectural variations that you’ll have at your disposal, be sure to consider integrating hardscapes into your yard. For example, decorative fire pits and outdoor kitchens not only look fantastic as part of the design but can truly provide a function when entertaining friends and family. They also offer a focal point to the yard, helping you design around a common centerpiece. If you’re looking for another gorgeous option that not only provides creativity and uniqueness to your landscape, consider a pondless waterfall. Such a construction not only takes up much less space than it appears but can actually give an appearance of enlarging the yard itself. They are also low maintenance and are safe for the whole family.
