It’s the new year, you are tired of Winter, probably bored, and now you’re thinking about sitting in the sun in your backyard. Have you ever thought about landscaping ideas for your backyard? Maybe your use of space could be better, maybe you could open up some usable space. It’s a good thing we have you covered here, or for a summary, check out our past projects page.
The first landscaping idea for your backyard will probably involve routine maintenance. Moreover, you cant use your yard if it’s a jungle. You would be surprised how many times we have laid some turf down, trimmed some hedges, removed a couple of small shrubs and the space is entirely different. Always remember that routine maintenance can make a world of difference when working with your outdoor space.
Patios provide a great way to improve the usable square footage of your backyard, there are a few methods we can go about this. Firstly, if your yard is quite hilly we can use a raised patio technique. This provides a nice flat area to enjoy all year round. The remainder can be used as a garden or second level.
Secondly, a multi-level patio could be used on a hilly area to provide two (or more) separate flat areas to use. An example of a multi-level patio can be seen on our projects page. When thinking of landscaping ideas for your backyard you can always inquire about your local landscaper, they have done many jobs and may have a better solution to your particular problem.
Finally, a raised patio with ornamental garden can heavily reduce any labor in the future. If you are busy and have little time to spare this could be the option for you. Likewise for an older demographic who physically can’t take care of their yard all the time anymore.
Retaining wall installation
Additionally, similar to a raised patio a retaining wall can increase your usable space for kids, pets, or entertaining. Retaining walls may also be used to install a raised garden for agricultural or ornamental purposes. You would be surprised how much space can be salvaged with the installation of a retaining wall.
Do you have a grassy area that refuses to grow, inhibiting any kind of landscaping idea for your backyard? You may not like it, but you most likely need to install new turf. In fact, if the grass is exposed to toxic chemicals over a prolonged period of time the roots can become contaminated and die. This is why your grass isn’t growing. The only solution would be to tear it up, as well as, remove the soil and start all over again. On the bright side, this could be a great opportunity to tackle an entire makeover adding any one of the great services Brunatti Landscape Contracting offers.
