Landscaping Ideas For Your Garden
A very simple definition of landscaping is changing or improving the appearance of an area/land according to your preferences. It could be a big chunk of land or a small area in your backyard, landscaping it would not be that difficult.
Everyone has a different liking when it comes to gardens. Some want their garden to have an authentic look while others go for a modern or a fancy look. Some people want to have very stony and concrete pavements while the others prefer the sand of the land itself.
So here are 20 best landscaping ideas:
#1. Structured pavements:
A gravel/ stony pavement around your land with plantations at the borders. A simple yet elegant pathway for a nice walk on your property. It’s contracted and organised in a very proper manner. Gives an elite look.
#2. Flora and flaunting:
Plant beautiful and colourful all season plantations in your garden to give you a garden like feeling. This would appeal to people who want to have a typical garden like structure. However, flora always gives you visually interesting yet calming surrounding. A very typical garden, not much to landscape.
#3. Lawn Lands:
When you have a large area of land and no matter how much you plant trees or shrubs it always seems empty, the best way to deal with it is to grow grass and keep mowing your lawn and you will get a rich look. An empty lawn still looks better than a barren land.
#4. Fairytales Fountain:
Water fountains are pretty as it is. And by adding it to your garden, you can get a dream like a garden. Fountains are like ornaments to a garden, it just improves the overall look. It gives a slight English touch to it.
#5. Driveway Fauna:
You can create a garden in a few sq. meters of land as well. Driveways usually take up all the space. However, you can create a garden around it as well. It’s just making use of what you have. A cobblestone driveway and plants all around it. It gives a modern look altogether.
#6. Pondering Over Ponds:
Its expensive to get an artificial pond in your backyard but ponds do give a posh look to your garden. You can get marsh-like plants. Lots of lotus in your pond. Doesn’t sound bad. Worth the expense and requires a lot of landscaping.
#7. Hot & Cold Fireplace:
A fireplace is usually used during the winters, especially during the Christmas time. Right in the middle of your backyard, this fireplace is going to be in use during the summers as well.
You could grill your pizzas and steak. A win-wins situation for the season. Ideal for places with big backyards.
#8. Go all hulk in your Backyard:
Keep it green and clean. This landscaping idea is as simple as it gets. Just plant trees at every corner and plant shrubs and bushes all around. Grass for the empty spaces so that you could walk around garden if you like. Go green.
#9. Patio Living:
A nice seating area for evenings or for guests. A long day at work or Summer barbecues with family and friends, patios are known to be the best place for relaxation.
#10. Grey Stonewalls:
Grey colour always gives a soothing feeling. They give a very rustic look. Very traditional with a tinge of modernity in it. A patio and garden of the flower bed as a view. Like a treat to your eye.
You are never too old to enjoy a swing once in a while. Everybody likes to swing and after a tiring day at work, this place can become a stress reliever.
#12. Stage An Act:
One section of your garden can be dedicated to a concrete Stage. Especially during parties or functions, the stage can be used to showcase some type of art. A live band could play. A small wedding could take place. Very resourceful.
#13. Bridge The Gap Between The Riverbeds:
An artificial riverbed can be made with a bridge over it. Like a mini version of your favourite bridge. An artificial landscape with a natural look and that too in your backyard. Interesting!
#14. Bird House And A Bath:
This is ideal for Bird lovers as they would like to feed and take care of them. It wouldn’t require a lot of space and it’s easy to maintain too. A cute bird house will actually attract the birds.
#15. Creepers All The Way:
A lamp post with creepers around it doesn’t seem like a bad picture. A rueful effect at night with the glowing of the light on the leaves.
The lamp post would act as a support for the creepers. An authentic visual giving an 80’s look.
#16. Climbing A Tree House:
Still stuck in your childhood fantasy?
Making a tree house nowadays is not that difficult. You can get a contractor to do that. This place would be more like a getaway from the real world. And your kids could play in it too. Perfect for a family home.
#17. Equipment Hut:
You can have a small hut like structure made out of the wood where you can store your garden equipment or like a store room for your other stuff. A small house wouldn’t look shabby and it would be of a lot of use too.
#18. Jazzy Jacuzzi:
A Jacuzzi available at any moment and at your space and time sounds like heaven. One of the best ways to relax and release stress. A very modern concept yet of a great use.
We all love trampoline. It brings out our inner kid who wants to jump up and down without wanting to hurt ourselves. It keeps your kid distracted and more than that a very healthy exercise for everyone in the family. Keep jumping and stay fit.
#20. Family Club House:
You can turn your plain garden into a club house where you can have indoor games.No one will be bored during a big family get together as there would so many things to do. A mini pool table, table tennis table, board games etc. You mould it according to your likes. Perfect for a hyperactive family.
People usually make very particular kinds of landscapes for their garden but you can actually put anything according to your likes.
From basic to creative, you can choose any.
Keep it simple, easy and useful.
