Make Your Yard Flourish with Landscaping
Although you spend most of your time indoors, you’ll probably want to go outside this spring and summer to enjoy Utah’s beautiful sights and weather. Imagine sunbathing on your green grass to the sound of birds chirping. Talk about paradise! A beautifully manicured lawn can make a world of difference for your family.
Incorporate the following three landscaping ideas to turn your yard into a retreat.
Number One: Create a Campfire at Home
Late nights around the bonfire are what spring and summer memories are made of. Fortunately, you can create this experience in your backyard with a fire pit that boasts natural rock seating. You can choose a permanent fire pit that matches your yard’s color and style.
If you’re not ready to commit to a permanent pit, you can opt for a portable one. Your kids will love toasting s’mores and hot dogs during family night!
Number Two: Enjoy a Relaxing Water Garden
The sounds of water features are not only soothing to the senses, but they can also block out distracting noises. You can’t go wrong with a pond-less waterfall, bubbling fountain, or a rock column fountain. Here are a few popular water features to consider:
- Water Lilies
- Koi fish
- Reflecting pools
- Ornamental poos
Number Three: Add an Island Bed
An island bed is a freestanding garden that you can view from all angles. It can create the illusion of extra space, and it adds color, texture, and height to your garden. Best of all, your island bed can take on any shape so that you can have a round, square, rectangular, or crescent-shaped one. Moreover, it’s easy to maintain because you can water your plants from all sides.
