Do you feel your backyard lacks attitude and style? When was the last time you enjoyed spending some relaxing time out there? Summer is just around the corner and whether you have a big or small family, this is the ideal season to spend time having fun outside. Outdoor activities don’t have to be far from home when you have an inviting area designated for it. Here are some tips to help you create the backyard of your dreams.
Create Picture-Perfect Patios
Your backyard can have a piece of concrete burning under the bright Perth sun, or welcome family and friends by having a warm space to enjoy in. Have you thought about pavers? Perth’s pavers are an excellent option to make your patio an extension of your home. There are many to choose from; Coral pavers give you extra texture you can feel when barefoot, and Glowpave shines by day and emits subtle touches of light by night, just to name a few. Pavers of all sorts will give you an added sense of sophistication and luxury into your dream backyard oasis.
Shake off the Sun
Enjoy the exterior without the nasty consequences of sunburn. By creating shady spots, you will be able to find relief from the exhausting sun and also give your backyard a bit more distinction. A fun way to add a little splash of colour into your design is by adding umbrellas or arbours. If you prefer Mother Nature to do her thing and envision your getaway a little more in touch with natural elements, mature trees will do the trick. Even the sun lovers welcome a little shade once in a while.
Bring on the Butterflies
If you are a less active person, you may see yourself drinking a refreshing beverage in the morning while you watch the butterflies dance around your garden. The best thing you can do to attract these beauties of nature is to plant flowers that are rich in nectar. You will then have double effectiveness, the soothing view of your gorgeous flower garden, and the ubiquitous presence of these curious little butterflies flying around your yard.
Dress your Deck
If you have a deck in your backyard, you have the advantage of various floor levels; this means you can easily design different zones for each of your favourite activities. For example, a dining area can be created with pergolas and vines to render a more secluded and private place for you and your guests to have a meal or share some drinks in. By making every space have its own function, you can enjoy the practicality of an organized backyard getaway.
Let the Waterworks Begin
There’s something particularly attractive about water. Sometimes, we feel the need to get closer to it wherever we see it, especially if it’s good-looking. The truth be told, water has been used throughout history as a way to channel out bad energy and as a medium for relaxation. A fountain or a pond are not very expensive. Creating a space that creates a seamless synergy between a fountain, canal or pond, with your the original design of your house is not that hard to do.
Make an oasis out of your backyard with these little tips. Kick back and relax while you allow yourself to enjoy the perfect combination of sun, nature and comfort. Enjoy time on your own and with your loved ones in a space perfectly fit for all.
