The right landscaping ideas can turn your yard into a place you are looking to spend more time. With summer coming right around the corner, now is the time to make some modifications to your Batavia area yard.

These five landscaping ideas can help you turn your home into the kind of place you want to spend a stay-cation.

Just Add Water – If you are looking to add a prized aesthetic attraction, a backyard pond can be the way to go. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, or can be built custom to fit the unique designs of your back yard. Ponds are affordable, and may require less maintenance than you think. But if you decide a pond isn’t right for your yard, you could always add a pondless waterfall, bubbling urn or spillway bowl to enhance the look of your patio or garden.

A Bench – Do you have a favorite pond, garden or tree? If there is somewhere in the yard you enjoy spending time, adding a bench can be a practical way to keep you up close and comfortable while you enjoy all that the aesthetics have to offer. That bench can be a great place to read your favorite book in the beautiful summer weather.

Paver Walkways – A paver walkway can add a beautiful accent to a well-landscaped yard. They can be aesthetically beautiful, and help you showcase the gardens, trees and other landscaping features your yard already has to offer. Pavers make a great landscaping material for enhancing the look of your yard.

Customize your landscaping lines – Not every garden border needs to be a perfect linear shape. Sometimes curves on the landscaping or gardens can enhance the visual appeal. Consider using brick or pavers to line the edges of your landscaping to add to the appeal.

Patio over a deck – Patios are typically more affordable and last longer than a wood deck. They have a strong visual appeal and can be a great choice for a family looking to enhance their outdoor space.
