Use your imagination.
What does your dream outdoor space look like? Do you see carefully designed garden beds, a relaxing water feature and comfortable patio? Do you want a firepit for roasting marshmallows with the kids or a space to build an outdoor kitchen for the backyard chef in your family? Are you an avid green-thumb who wants multiple garden beds throughout the yard? Start writing down your ideas and if it helps, make a sketch of your yard and label where things will go.
Determine a style theme for your outdoor space.
One of the biggest mistakes people make when attempting a DIY landscaping project is not determining a design style for the entire yard. Homeowners spend money on flowers or shrubbery over the weekend, bring it home and end up with a mishmash of elements throughout their yard that don’t really fit together. That’s why it’s best to work a professional landscape design team like New Look Landscapes. They’ll work with you to define your long-term vision and create a design for your space the will achieve those goals, creating a beautiful, well-rounded style that flows well throughout your entire space.
Consider landscaping features and create your landscape in the right order.
If you want to create an outdoor kitchen, you’ll first need to think about installing a patio and walkways from the house, before going out and buying the new barbeque, counter area, furniture and other accessories. Before the patio is built you’ll have to know where necessary gas lines, electric and plumbing will go. New Look Landscapes will help you prioritize your projects, ensuring things are being built in the right order to meet your budget and timeline without missing a crucial step in the process.
Get creative with unique landscaping features.
There are many features that can be included in your outdoor living space including patios and walkways, retaining walls, garden beds, decks, outdoor lighting, water features and irrigation systems. Adding a fire pit will create a focal point for entertaining, socializing and relaxing. Listening to the soft trickling sounds of a fountain will bring a soothing ambiance to your yard while attracting birds and adding motion to your landscape design. Garden beds can add colour to the yard, help frame other landscaping features and create an outdoor space that looks and smells amazing!
