As the saying goes, home is where the heart is. The good news is you need not spend a relaxing weekend elsewhere if you start working now on transforming your backyard into an oasis. Given a complete makeover, a small or big backyard can be a family’s affordable and comfortable weekend escape, a great place to host parties or a place to just laze around and watch the world go by.
Do you have a backyard that has been sitting drab and not serving any purpose for years? It’s time to give it a revamp and maximize its use.
Here are some tips:
- You can achieve a stunning backyard even with a small space. With a bit of creativity, this small yard can turn into a relaxing retreat featuring a custom small pool or spa and other landscaping features.
- Tropical foliage is awesome during the daytime. Find beauty in these shrubs and show off their silhouettes at night with the right lighting.
- If you have a bigger space, a pool waterfall is a great water feature to enhance the ambiance of your backyard. Whether your design is tropical or Mediterranean-inspired, pool waterfalls add tranquility and calmness to any space.
- If your family loves hosting parties, a relaxing backyard patio could be an excellent solution for outdoor dining, entertaining and sunbathing.
- For those who can’t maintain green lawns well, opt for a bigger patio that you can utilize for activities that you normally do indoor.
Backyards have indeed leveled up their function making them a useful indoor extension for families –and guests—to bond and enjoy. Whether for a quiet retreat or a party of fun, backyards are here to stay.
