The landscaping of your yard is an important aspect in creating an attractive home. Your front yard design is the first thing that visitors will see when passing by your house, so it is important that the landscaping for this area be designed in a fashionable way. Backyards, on the other hand, tend to be more private and hidden from direct view so this portion of the yard offers more design options. From simple layouts with a few pieces of lawn furniture and plants to more elaborate outdoor living spaces, the backyard offers limitless design options for any DIY homeowner to create the perfect sanctuary by drafting patio, pool and deck designs.
The landscape of your home should be designed with yours and your family’s lifestyle in mind to create a space that is not only pleasant to look at but also somewhere that your family can enjoy their time together.
Backyard decks and patios are a great addition to any home because they provide you with an outdoor living space to use for a variety of different functions. Also creates outdoor living spaces that can function as an extra room in your house to entertain guests or enjoy some relaxing time outside. In addition, building a patio or deck will increase the resale value as well as the curb appeal of your home.
Simple patio landscape designs make a beautiful addition to your home, while more elaborate plans will extend your living spaces outdoors and create your own personal oasis.
Outdoor Living Spaces &
Your outdoor living space should be as well-planned, as efficient and as comfortable as your indoor space. Your outdoor space should be a natural extension of your indoor space. At the heart of a great outdoor living space is living!
Agreat example is when walk into a semi-custom or tract home and you walk through the outdoor living space. It has the elements, but no cohesion. All of the ingredients, but none of the flavor. It has been built for everyone, so it was built for no one. It's a shame that many builders think that it's just a formula - BBQ, bar, fan, can lights, and maybe a fire pit.
