Start With Plants

Whether you desire a large garden, a few tall trees or just some nice plants to decorate here and there, always start with greenery. Once you’ve sussed out the space and have decided on the right landscape or plantscape to suit your location and backyard size, you’ll need to begin researching suitable plants that will help to achieve the look and feel you’re going for.

You don’t have to purchase or plant them right away, but deciding what type of plants or garden you want will help set the theme of your backyard. Plants are an extremely versatile feature in a backyard and can make a stunning focal point or finishing touch to the exterior design, regardless of the size of your yard. Likewise, plants can also be used to further enhance the design, whether it be to provide additional shade or to simply add a breath of fresh air and a splash of colour to the space.

Add A Room

If you have an old garage or shed sitting in your backyard, don’t get rid of it! Although it may seem like a waste of space, never underestimate its potential. A shed could be turned into an outdoor office, bathroom or even a kid’s play area. With a little bit of paint and furniture you could create something beautiful and unique to add to your quirky backyard design.
