Are You Making Changes In Your Backyard Landscaping?

Have you decided to give your backyard a new look? Maybe the landscape you had last year was just too hard to maintain. Or, it might be that you simply want to add pizzaz to your backyard landscaping. Whatever the scenario that has inspired you to make some changes in your landscaping, do you already know what your plan is? If so, you don't need to read a single another word.

However, if you are still in the planning stages, from a brick hardscape to selecting new patio furniture, here are some ideas that might help you.

A New Hardscape

Talk about lessening your gardening workload, and that's what a hardscape will do for you. You won't have a lawn to care for, and it will also add beauty to your back yard landscape.

Think about selecting bricks for the foundation of your hardscape. Bricks aren't just beautiful, they are also affordable and will last for a very long time. A brick hardscape will be easy to care for, too. Just wash it off with your garden hose, and you're all set. 

Flagstone would also be a good choice for your hardscape. Like bricks, the flagstone foundation would be easy to maintain, and it would last for a long time.

If you are a do-it-yourself type of person, you might want to create the foundation for your hardscape yourself. If that's not the case, your local nursery will probably be happy to give you names of individuals who will do the job for you.

Patio Furniture

Once your hardscape foundation is complete, consider turning the area into a patio where you can spend time with friends and family members. Choose furniture that will withstand all kinds of weather.

For example, wrought iron would be a really good choice. Traditional dark green, gray, or black would all be good choices. But, if you want extra pizzaz in the area, consider painting the wrought iron furniture a bright color like yellow or turquoise.

Wicker or rattan furniture would also be good choices. Make sure they are the type of materials that you can use outdoors.

Whether you choose wrought iron, wicker, or rattan, think of buying colorful seat cushions. Not only will they make the furniture more comfortable, but they will add interest to your new hardscape patio area. Place pots holding colorful plants in strategic places, too.
