Summer is officially here! That means fun in the sun, family and friends, and lots of gatherings at your humble abode. Make your sure backyard is hosting-ready with these five landscaping ideas:
1. Add a walkway
Lead people where you want them to go while also creating definition through your yard with a pathway. This is not only functional but very easy to achieve with pavers, stones, or any kind of brick or rock. Bonus…it also can keep people from stepping on your newly cut grass.
2. Don’t forget the edging
Continuing with the pathway theme, add edging to any walkways that are made from loose materials…think gravel, stone, and mulch…to keep things looking clean, uniform, and professional. Choose from plastic borders or go the heartier route with bricks or cinderblocks. Edges help provide a transition between elements and prevent materials from spreading. You don’t want small rocks ending up on your lawn or garden.
3. Pond anyone?
Summer weather can get hot! Adding a water feature like a pond can help create a cooling breeze, not to mention a chill vibe. Why not go all out with fun fish and water plants. Create your own aqua oasis and enjoy as the wildlife comes to check it out. Just keep an on your feathered friends…they’ve been known to see pond fish as an all-you-can-eat buffet!
4. Mix things up with a gravel garden
Don’t have a green thumb but still want to add the aesthetic elements a garden has to offer? A gravel garden is just what it sounds like…a garden made from gravel. Give your space a serene, almost spa-like ambiance. Big or small, use different colours, sizes, and textures of gravel to create any shape that suits your fancy. Gravel becomes an instant backdrop visually and makes everything around it pop.
5. Fun around the fire
Nothing brings people together like a fire pit. Whether you build your own, purchase a standard pre-built ring, or even use choose one of our fire pit kits for the best of both worlds, we can help you find the right option for your home. We will even sing some campfire songs with you to test it out if you ask nicely. Just don’t forget to stop for marshmallows and graham crackers. Smores are a must for summer nights around the fire.
