IDEAS FOR A COZY BACKYARD RETREAT
Take advantage of your outdoor living space and create something cozy and enjoyable. For some homeowners, an outdoor space is nothing more than a few square feet of balcony space, but for those fortunate enough to have an entire yard, the opportunities are practically unlimited.
Here are some helpful ideas for creating your very own backyard retreat:
-Water Element- Flowing water has a calming effect – which is why outdoor fountains have existed within gardens and sacred spaces for centuries. A small table top fountain, a large three tier fountain, or just a soothing bubbler can help transform your backyard into a relaxing oasis. Even a simple bird bath can give your backyard that special edge.
-Fire element- Backyard fire pits are one of the most popular of all landscaping features. Adding a fire pit will extend the enjoyment of your backyard for you and your guests.
-Flowers and Shrubs- Adding flowers and shrubs will bring any yard to life. A few strategically placed shrubs, flower beds and herb gardens can help turn your outdoor area into a lively space perfect for romantic moments or parties with friends and family.
-Outdoor Seating- Invest in cozy outdoor chairs, chaise lounges and benches with plenty of washable cushioning. Create an area for an intimate breakfast or an afternoon glass of wine -Garden décor & Outdoor Art- Give your backyard even more personality by selecting a few garden statues, a piece of custom outdoor art or even a custom trellis for your beautiful clematis to grow. Just like your interior space, your backyard should reflect your own individual style.
