With spring here and summer approaching, the outdoors start calling. And while heading to the beach or mountains isn’t always an option, many can wander right out the back door to a garden, patio or yard space. This year, make it your mission to incorporate these trends in your backyard design ideas. With the right adornments, furniture and plants, your back garden or yard can quickly become an outdoor haven where you truly enjoy spending time.
Yard Art to Give Your Lawn a Pop of Color
Art sometimes seems like it’s restricted to indoor spaces, but your lawn offers a green canvas that awaits colorful design. Select decorative touches for your yard to create a stunning gallery that showcases pretty, quirky and customized pieces reflective of your style.
Lawn spinners and windmills are eye-catching thanks to their vibrant designs and moving pieces. If you don’t have time to tend to flowers, they are a fantastic, low-maintenance way to brighten up and add interest to your lawn.
Don’t let your backyard design ideas disappear into the darkness once the sun sets. Solar lighting is energy efficient and turns your garden into a magical space at night.
Add string lights, lanterns and novelty lamps to create an enchanting atmosphere.
Outdoor Living Backyard Design Ideas
The way to truly enjoy your outdoor space is to make it an extension of your living space. Furnish it for relaxing or entertaining with outdoor sofas, metal stools, dining tables and end tables.
Your backyard can easily function as an exterior living room. Design a seating area centered around a beautifully patterned outdoor rug to create a comfortable gathering space for cocktails and conversation. Throw pillows add texture and softness, and coordinating shades or prints bring the look together. Table linens and outdoor dining accents provide inviting details that encourage family and friends to linger around your cozy table.
Making Good Use of All the Pots in Your Shed
Containers offer a compact, tidy way to grow and display your favorite flowers or even vegetables. Consider long, rectangular planters for narrow spaces or to create beautiful borders. Try out fun container colors or faux stone finishes to add unique character to your space.
You don’t need to have a green thumb to make your space look lush and vibrant. Potted faux ferns and faux greenery can look just as good and convincing as the real thing and don’t need pruning or watering.
Enhance your green space with container fountains and water features. The sound of running water is one of the most peaceful things in the world. Try designing your own tranquil fountain using a decorative container or two, a DIY pump kit and some large stones.
Whether your space is big or small, it’s full of potential. These brilliant backyard design ideas make the most of your space in practicality and appearance. Incorporate them into your garden, and this summer, you can spend as much time as you want outdoors without going far from home.
