Right now every one is loving the great outdoors in the early morning and evening. It is at those times the you spend more time in the yard. Almost always, one can find a way to improve it. Here are some ideas that might inspire you.
A fire is perfect for those cool summer nights. Rather than a simple portable fire pit, consider an outdoor fireplace. This not only allows you to create a safer and larger fire, but it can also create a focal point for your outdoor living space. Imagine sitting by the fire to enjoy a quiet evening on your own or socializing for friends and family!
This actually brings us to our next popular outdoor home trend, formal outdoor seating areas. Whether it be around a fireplace or in a defined space of its own, comfortable outdoor seating is popular right now, and for good reason. From comfy couches to lounge chairs and outdoor beds, your yard can be just as cozy and relaxing as your indoor living room. By straying from traditional patio tables and chairs, you can create a truly welcoming space that you will enjoy all summer long.
If a traditional flower garden seems a bit difficult or overwhelming to manage, consider smaller garden areas. Vertical gardens can help add greenery and privacy to your space. Potted plants placed throughout your yard can create a beautiful landscape filled with color. Be creative with your container selection for an added design element and mix plants with flowers for added depth.
The sound of waves or moving water can be very soothing. You can bring this element into your yard by creating a water garden or fountain area. Make it even more special by adding some fish!
Time for a change
The traditional sense of a yard with just grass and landscaping around the perimeter has changed dramatically. Outdoor home design trends are all about comfort, functionality, and depth. We hope that the ideas above will inspire you to make your back yard a welcoming place for your whole family to enjoy this summer!
