When you’re planning your landscape and outdoor spaces, it’s fun to get into a creative mindset. There are a lot of different ways you can transform your standard yard space into something that’s more personalized and interesting. By incorporating new accentuating features to your yard, you can draw attention to different areas and elements of your yard for a more visually appealing effect.
Here are just a few of our favorite things that you can implement into your yard to make it stand out.
Woodwork and other wooden elements are great when using in your outdoor spaces. Items like wooden screens are the perfect way to inject a bit of vertical architecture to your garden without making maintenance difficult. Woodwork that you install into your spaces can act both as a focal point of your space or as a backdrop to highlight other elements in your yard. Beyond being simply decorative, they’re also incredibly functional. They can guard your landscape against high winds and can protect your plants from harsh weather conditions. Custom woodwork is the perfect way to set your yard apart from your neighbors.
Who said that outdoor spaces can only look good during the day? By utilizing some lighting elements, you can highlight specific parts of your yard at night to point focus there. You can draw your guests’ attention to new plants, structures, or trees that you’ve installed or planted, simply through the use of lighting. It also helps to create a welcoming environment. By transforming the overall look of your space, you can create different moods at night, whether you’re looking for a serene and calm yard or a festive and celebratory landscape.
Mosaics are personalized tiles or stonework that have customized designs, initials, monograms, or patterns in it. They are great for adding refinement to a hard surface. By installing mosaics into certain hard surfaces in your yard, you can get a more vibrant-looking yard that is unique and meaningful to you.
Stonework has a way of adding majesty and elegance to any property. Your walkways, patios, dining spaces or yard areas can be both functional and beautiful by choosing the correct stone. Large stones and boulders are often used to add texture, weight, and interest in gardens. By selecting a variety of stone to utilize in your yard, you can build beautiful garden art, ponds, fountains, and planting beds.
