As an initial start of the outdoor landscaping project, start by segregating your outdoor space into different spaces. Think of having a space for the lawn, a stone or bricks patio, a seating space, and finally a planting space. Think outside the box by creating irregular shapes as you divide your outdoor yard. It is not necessary to have an equal square or rectangular spaces. A rounded lawn can add a special touch, especially when it is surrounded by stones or a tiny walking path.
Make the best out of your outdoor space by equipping yourself with fun or entertaining activities to enjoy during the summer breeze or refreshing cool weather. DIYing a garden bar is a clever, simple, and easy task that you can make overnight.
I am saying DIY because there are plenty of ideas to shape a nice bar with wood bars that you may possess at home, unused palettes stacked in your garage, or an old useless bench that has been sitting in the corner for a long period.
All you need to do is to draw the shape of the bar, calculate the wooden bars that you need, then grab the tools needed and build them up. You can decorate it with some blue, green, or spring palette colors. But don’t forget to coat it with a waterproof finishing wax to keep it alive year after year. Pick creatively the drink dispensers, the glasses some nuts, and do not forget on your favorite drinks.
You may be spending a good amount of time in your outdoor area during the lovely weather and thus, you need that space to be an extension of your home.
Do not compromise on the feel and ambiance of your garden. Your garden, like any other place in your home, should give you that cozy feeling. Therefore, while choosing your outdoor furniture, make sure to pick the right seating set that best suits your personality. Whether you are looking for bamboo, wooden, steel, or other, choose what you prefer and ensure the pattern of the textile is as complementary to the style of the garden as possible.
If you are looking for outdoor ideas for small spaces, then you need to think about vertical landscaping. Not only you will be saving space horizontally, but it will give you ample vertical space to place potters and planters creatively, building a natural fence for your garden.
Vertical landscaping can be built by planting climbing plants that grow tall and take walls or tall sticks to lay on. It can equally be done by handing planters and pots on a dull wall or placing wooden or steel plant stands and then go creative with your choice of planters.
As the sun takes over the summer days, you still do not want to miss the zero-rain weather and enjoy sitting outside. An umbrella is an ideal investment whose outcome is twofold. On one hand, you will be able to sit outside protected from the sun and harmful UV rays. On the other hand, your furniture will be also in a safe environment in the shadow, hence its life cycle will be prolonged.
String some lights under your umbrella or pergola over the seating area. Or have them installed over the entrance to your yard. Another option to light your outdoor space is by installing lanterns or garden lights.
If you have the required provision, that should not be a hard exercise. However, if the power system is not installed outdoor, you can simply grab solar battery lights. These are perfectly made to help you fix the lighting issues in your garden on one hand, and save you some extra pennies from the power bill on the other hand.
Do not underestimate the power of a well-organized patio. In addition, do not think that a small outdoor space cannot have a patio in the first place. Remember we said to segregate the outdoor space? One of these segregated spaces will be used to build this patio. Stuff stones ranging from white, light grey, and dark grey colors all around, then place in the middle a wooden plot. If you have the potential and the provisions, try adding as well some hidden bulb lights on the corners or the sides. Then place some nice greenery all around. Now try to imagine the magic created!
Not necessarily that outdoor spaces have lawns. Some may have artificial ones, others may have tiles instead. However, this is not the end of the world. Containers, planters, pots, are always there to save you and your patio. Containers are an ideal choice for paved areas, especially that they do not require water supply or water drainage.
Recycle to DIY. Have you heard of the tires that were transformed into planters? Did you see an old chair shapely cut to fit a pot with flowers? How about an old skillet painted and hung in a garden? All these are out-of-the-box ideas that you can implement while decoration your garden.
If you decide to go for planters, nothing beats the view of blooming flowers on your pave yard. Choose long live flowers with matching colors and boost the look and feel of your garden with bright flowery blooms. Not to forget the smell that your garden will have with a stretch of flowers planted here and there.
Don’t be surprised. Do you know that some fruit trees can grow in pots? At least for a couple of years? Fig trees, olive trees, some orange trees can easily grow at home in a semi-deep and semi wide pot.
