Landscaping isn’t just about putting up a pretty garden. Landscape according to the sections you have in your yard sections and you’ll have an easier way of planning. This way, you’ll get a cohesive look for your outdoors yet still have outdoor materials and implements which fits perfectly.
The Gardener’s Nook
Assign the most fertile part of your yard to your plants and plots. Whether you’re a keen florist, a vegetable farmer or a shrub enthusiast, you’ll immediately plan on how to best use this space. You can put up an elevated plot, borders which also serve as plant containers, a greenhouse roof or a pergola.
The Outdoor Room
Usually the patio space surrounding the perimeter of your home, this outdoor room ideally sports a patio cover. The cover can either be freestanding or extends from your roofline. Aside from that, plan your patio surface material. Deciding for which purpose your outdoor room, you’ll then be able to plan what built-in features you may want. If you’d like an outdoor living room, the space can be fitted with comfortable patio furniture.
The Outdoor Kitchen
If you love having friends and family around for a meal or two, then an outdoor kitchen will neatly complement your vegetable garden. Cook the fresh produce from the comforts of your patio. Fit it with a grill, a sink or even a cold storage for your beer and meats.
The Play Area
If you’ve got little ones, make your yard a safe haven for them to play with a sandbox or swing and slide combination. Plan for a box border which may or may not be raised. You can also put in a pergola for a partial cover while still letting the sun shine in.
Landscaping your yard might seem too daunting but when done in sections, it’ll let you zone in on the most important features and allow you to plan without missing a detail. This way, you can also pick which sections should be done first.
