As lovers of the outdoors and nature in general, we’re always searching for new and fresh ways to spruce up the backyard or garden and today we found some really interesting ideas which could really change the game. These backyard creations can elevate the landscape to a whole new level. Each of the following backyard ideas is based on a different concept and we’ll explore them each more closely through some inspiring images.
Go Green and Natural
If you want to keep things simple, focus on a single color. Keep the backyard green and natural and forget about the multitude of colors featured by flowering plants focusing instead of decorative bushes and trees. You could also add a sculpture to the garden if you want to create a separate focal point.
Flowers and Butterflies
There are many different ways in which you can add color to a backyard garden. Try something a bit less conventional for a change and decorate the garden with beautiful butterflies. It would definitely be nice to have a bunch of real butterflies there but that would be a bit too complicated. So how about some artificial butterfly ornaments which you can attach to the leaves and stems of your plants?
The Monarch butterflies is among the most popular but there are plenty of other species that impress with their amazing patterns and bold colors. This one appears to be a blue Morpho butterfly, a very beautiful and very eye-catching specimen.
Another way in which you can turn a rock garden or backyard into an amazing display of colors involves a variety of flowering species. Think of the colors you’d like to see in your garden and then search for the plants that can offer them. You can also create interesting combination with flowers that have different forms, sizes and patterns.
The color palette of your garden should be chosen according to the mood and ambiance you’re trying to create there but also the season when they can be enjoyed in their full splendor. For example, you can welcome spring with some boldly-colored flowers and select some muted and more relaxing tones for the autumn garden.
Hanging baskets with plants
Not all gardens stand on the ground. Vertical gardens are quite popular, especially when there’s not a lot of space available. Consider hanging baskets and planters if you want to turn one of the walls of your house into an amazing display of colors or plants. Similarly, a fence can be used in pretty much the same way.
A romantic Corner
A lush and beautiful garden is the perfect setting for a small and private seating corner. The beautiful surrounding landscape would make this space pretty romantic so why not explore this idea further and add some other romantic features such as some fairy lights in the trees or a comfortable loveseat?
There are a lot of backyard designs that focus on dramatic and outstanding visual effects. If you enjoy adding the wow factor to your designs, perhaps you’d interested in something similar.
How about these spiraling things? They’re definitely eye-catching and they’d make any garden stand out? They literary take the landscape to a new level.
Other features that can add the wow factor to a garden include water features and rock formations. These can either be the focal point of your garden or additions meant to complete the look and to create a certain look or atmosphere.
Go natural and use only organic materials
The architectural garden design we showed us also inspired us to focus more on natural and organic materials. As you can see, this is an important element in this particular design and this gives the garden a very pleasant and comfortable look and feel. Use materials such as rocks, pebbles, wood and of course add grass and plants to the mix.
