Does your boring backyard need a little spice? Check out these seven backyard landscaping ideas for inspiration.
Creating a multilevel effect in your backyard is a great way to up the excitement level. A mini excavator is the perfect piece of equipment to dig ou terraces. If you need to transfer dirt to another part of the yard as well, consider a tractor loader backhoe for the added versatility of the loader bucket. Install a wall in between to create a beautiful terrace.
The sounds of flowing water have been linked to lower stress levels and deeper sleep, which makes them an ideal part of a relaxing backyard sanctuary. A naturalistic stream, a waterfall or a fountain — incorporate whatever type of water feature strikes your fancy to add a relaxing sight and sound the entire family can enjoy.
If there’s no delineation between where you stretch out with a good book and where the kids run and play, everyone is bound to go a little crazy. Bring in different surfaces, levels and foliage to define and separate these areas.
Pick a spot you want to convert into a garden area. It could be along the perimeter or in the center as a courtyard garden. Make sure you plant the right foliage in places where it's sure to thrive. For flower ideas, look into these Dr. Seuss inspired plants.
Make the best use of your property by converting part of your backyard into an outdoor living room. An awning or pergola provides shade, while comfortable, weatherproof furniture lets you eat or lounge outdoors when the weather's nice.
Transforming your backyard into a bounty-producing garden is one of those backyard landscaping ideas that not only adds beauty to the space, but makes it productive as well. Share your harvest with friends and neighbors throughout the year.
If you have a steep backyard, don’t think of it as a deficit. Instead, incorporate backyard landscaping ideas that make it an asset. Level out some areas with a tractor loader backhoe, put in a whimsical winding path, plant bushes that attract butterflies, and otherwise make the space your perfect backyard oasis.
