A backyard space can be as open or intimate as the homeowner wishes. The right choice of furniture, landscaping and other factors can turn any space into an oasis that carries one and their family away from the stresses and the strains of work and daily life. Creating such a space, however, can be more difficult than it seems. Here are some tips to make the process a little easier:
Lay a Green Backdrop – Green is the color of the outdoors so capitalize on this fact and plants green plants, shrubs and trees of every size to develop a canvas for your other landscaping efforts.
Plant in Layers – While the backdrop is important, a focused use of color in strategic spots throughout your garden can welcome visitors, provide pleasant views or just create that welcoming spot at the end of the day.
Create a Water Feature – Focal points are important in any garden. The best gardens use water features for both aesthetic and functional reasons.
