The right backyard designs can help turn your home into the ideal place to spend some time.

We’re approaching the summer months, when we all want to spend a little bit more time outside, and enjoy that Naperville area weather in the summer. The hectic pace of the workday and our daily schedule can get in the way of our ability to recharge.

But there are some simple backyard designs that can be implemented to enhance the appeal of your home.

Do Away With the Angles – When we think of the shapes of our new patios, or our gardens and landscaping, we tend to think in the form of angles. Sometimes gentle curves can add a beautiful design element into the backyard, and make it more pleasant to look at.

Consider a Walkway – When you step off the patio, is it to go to the garden, the pond, or a favorite tree? Consider a brick or a paver walkway. This can be an aesthetic way to enhance the look of your backyard. Belgard and Unilock make some great pavers in different shapes and colors, so you’ll be sure to find the right ones to go with your environment.

Add Some Pop Into Your Landscaping – When you consider what plants you’re going to go with for the year, make sure you consider whether you’re looking for annuals or perennials, whether they are native, and how the colors will look in your backyard in full bloom. But don’t stop there. Consider adding a bubbling urn, a spillway bowl, or maybe even a rain barrel into your landscaping to liven it up. You could even add a brick paver border around the edges of your garden to make it pop.

Consider a bench – Is there are favorite place in your backyard (away from your patio) that you might want to sit and spend some time? Consider placing a bench under your favorite tree, or near your pond. It can offer an alternative place to enjoy the beauty of your slice of nature.

These are just a few backyard designs to allow you to enjoy the beauty around your home. For more backyard designs to fit the look and feel of your home, contact a professional Naperville area landscaper today!
