Creating A Backyard Retreat

March 24, 2021

With warmer weather around the corner, we are fired up about the upcoming gardening season. Getting outside is exactly what we all need. Creating an outdoor space, you will want to spend every moment in this summer is easier than you think. Here are a few suggestions to get you started.

1.    Build a focal seating area

Getting started can be tricky when you are designing an outdoor space. Start by thinking about where, in your space, you want to spend most of your time socializing. A deck or patio adds ease of use and helps things look clean and finished. This is also huge for the resale value of your home.

2.    Bring a bit of inside out

When you hear rug, you probably think about the interior of your home. An outdoor rug is a great way to add a pop of colour and a lot of comfort to your hard outdoor surfaces, though. Whether you have little ones crawling around or just want the freedom to kick off your shoes, a good outdoor rug is worth the investment.

3.    Follow the pretty stone path

Connect different areas in your backyard space with pathways to create better flow and intriguing designs. Whether you choose mulch, bricks, or stones, Dragonfly Landscape Supply has what you need to add that little extra flair. 

4.    Add some lighting

It’s the little touches that take your space to the next level. String some ‘twinkle’ lights across fences or posts and instantly add whimsy. You can also line gardens and pathways with torches, lanterns, or solar lights for a gentle glow. It’s not only functional but also a beautiful addition.

5.    Heat things up

Think about your best experiences outdoors; chances are at least one of those memories was around a fire pit. At Dragonfly Landscape Supply, we have a range of fireplace options to match your décor. Don’t forget to include lots of seating! A fire is always the main destination…a great gathering place for conversations, stories, and singing. 

These are just a few examples to get you excited about getting outdoors and enjoying your own backyard. Stop in and see us for more inspiration. There’s nothing we love more than helping our customers create their very own backyard oasis.
