If you are looking to turn your backyard into an outdoor sanctuary, then you have come to the right place. The backyard is often underutilized, a part of the property left to tend to itself. A backyard fulfills its true potential when groomed for outdoor living, which can look like different things to different people. If you are scrounging for ideas, here are the best backyard additions ever!
Deck or Patio
Let’s start with the basics. You will first want to have a solid, stable platform on which to view your landscape. Either you will have a deck or a patio. Is your current deck or patio in good shape? It could be wise to start from there. Edward’s Lawn & Home offers deck and patio installation, among other services.
It doesn’t hurt to establish your borders, either. If you have young children or pets, you might want to fence in the backyard to ensure that no one runs out of bounds and no intruders enter your property. Fencing is also necessary for privacy on busy streets and between some neighboring backyards. Wood, vinyl, composite, aluminum, and steel are all options.
Now for the fun part. Backyard additions include elements that make you feel like you are out in nature. A water feature is one element that certainly achieves this mood. Everyone loves to live by the water, so one can add a fountain, a waterfall, a birdbath, or even a dry riverbed for effect.
Fire pits and fireplaces are specialties of Edward’s Lawn & Home. They are expert stone and brick masons who can design and build your very own backyard fire feature. Fire pits and fireplaces are great for adding ambiance no matter what season it is!
Sometimes the sun is unbearable, and rain ruins the party. If you have a shade feature, you won’t have to worry about these things. Install a pergola on your deck or patio, and you have various degrees of shade throughout the day. Add a gazebo, and you have instant shelter from the elements.
What else is there to add? Your backyard isn’t complete without beautiful garden beds. Edward’s Lawn & Home can add quality hardscapes and beautiful plantings for a picture-perfect backyard. If you need help coming up with a design, Edward’s Lawn & Home can help!
