While your front garden is what visitors see when they arrive at your home, the backyard is often where most entertaining takes place. For this reason backyard landscaping is a vital part of any overall landscaping or garden plan.
It doesn’t matter how big or small your backyard is; the first step is to determine function. Your backyard landscaping plan should include the backyard area and it’s a good idea to indicate what you want to happen, and where. For example, typical backyard landscaping plans include an area for sitting, a water element, possibly a swimming pool or a fishpond (or both), and an eating or cooking area for entertaining guests.
Backyard landscaping often incorporates walls, fences, or tall shrubs around the area to create a feeling of privacy. There may also be pathways and garden features in your backyard landscaping plan, such as trellises, specialty planters, and obelisks.
You can mirror the style of the front garden, or create a completely different look for your backyard landscaping. Just because the area is behind the house doesn’t mean that you should pay any less attention to backyard landscaping.
Naturally backyard landscaping also includes plants and flowers. Choose your foliage carefully to ensure your backyard landscaping theme is successful. Also, choose decorative elements such as plant stands, hanging baskets, and floor planters to accent your backyard landscaping style.
