Just Add Lights
There can’t be any true backyard ambience without a little bit of lighting! The options are endless, just make sure you put it on your list. The easiest way to add some tranquil lighting is to hang them along the border of your patio and exterior of your home. To additionally wow your guests, consider installing lights that have a remote control.
Opt for the Custom Shed
If you’ve ever purchased a house that came along with a mis-matched shed, you can understand the eyesore that it becomes. You don’t have to break the bank in order to find a storage space that adds to your backyard paradise.
Design a Pathway
One of the best ways to put your landscaping skills on display is creating a walking path. This article from Family Handy Man provides a great resource to research gravel or stonepath. A pathway also provides a beautiful aesthetic to showcase your gardens, plants, flowers and arrangements.
Construct a Pergola
Nothing can brighten up your backyard as much as a pergola. A stone path leading to your pergola can create the perfect atmosphere for backyard watching. There are so many various ways to construct a pergola, including taking the project on yourself. Check out this great article from HGTV if you think you want to give this DIY project a chance.
Install a Pool
In Acadiana as well as nation-wide, there has been an incredible uptick in demand for backyard pools. With the summers as hot as ever, and having to work around shut-down orders in 2020, the convenience of a personal pool has never been more highly sought-after. Along with the benefit of offering a cool down whenever you desire, a picturesque pool water can complete your backyard design.
Don’t Underestimate Decor and Furniture
Ever consider an outdoor rug? It may seem like something reserved for indoor design only, but don’t underestimate how a cohesive rug can bring your whole patio together. It can add a pop of color outside without having to go through the trouble of redoing your outside flooring. Paired with the perfect outdoor furniture, your patio will really shine and create a comfortable space for you to relax.
Just Add Water and Wind
There is nothing more relaxing than the soothing sides of a running fountain or tranquil wind chimes. With a variety of fountains, big and small, consider adding one among your garden. Installing a wind chime is also a very simple task that has a profound effect on the sounds of your backyard.
