5 Landscaping Design Tips

Spring is here and summer won’t be too far behind. That means it is finally the season to spend time outside in your yard! Take a look outside at your backyard… does it look ready? If not, that is okay! We’re still early enough in the season to get it looking great! Consider the following landscape design tips that will work great, even for small backyards:

#1 Before you even go outside, make a list of “needs” vs “wants.” Your space is limited, no matter how much square footage you actually have. Figure out if you have the budget, time, and space for everything you need in your backyard before moving on to ideas that would just be great to have. Do you gather friends and family over often? Then a dining and entertaining space is needed. Are you into the idea of growing your own food? A few vegetable beds might be a good addition.

#2 Zones are the next step to creating a great backyard. Think about traffic patterns and naturally occurring spaces in order to carve up the landscape to suit the space. For example, the small area right off the kitchen could be perfect for your dining area, but not great for planting your vegetables because it’s too shady and people would constantly be stepping over it.

#3 Design around these zones. One idea to add visual interest is to place a wall or fence of flowers to show the perimeter of each space. If that sounds like a lot of work to keep up with, mulch and gravel are both cheap backyard ideas for creating zones. Concrete slabs or pavers are a bit more expensive but are also much easier to maintain than anything alive and growing.

#4 If you’re really short for space, you don’t need to abandon the idea of planting what you love all together. Consider planting flowers and vegetables in movable containers, like wooden boxes. You can also build flower beds up, so these raised beds give you vertical space to work with as well.

#5 Decide on your focal point. In your living room, your television is probably your focal point and so your couch and chairs are positioned towards it. This same principle is true with landscaping, as well. A big flower bed, a covered patio, or a small shed may be the piece of your landscape that guides the eye and influences choices for the rest of your backyard. A backyard gazebo is another exceptional anchor to make the focal point.
