A few simple touches can make a big difference when it comes to sprucing up your outdoor space. And after the past year of being cooped up at home, there’s no better time to create your own outdoor oasis where you can forget about the stress of the day. Even when you’re limited on space, you can transform a bare and uninspiring yard into the perfect sanctuary to unwind and kick back. Here are a few creative ideas to make your smaller backyard stand out and look its best.
Add Potted Plants
If your backyard is dull and could use a splash of colour, add some planters throughout it to instantly uplift and transform the entire area. Whether it’s on the patio or throughout the landscape, there are many different sizes and designs that you can choose from to add more height and eye-catching displays. Just be sure to look for plants that are hardy and can easily survive in your location.
Make It Cozy With an Outdoor Rug
Whether you have a large patio or a deck that’s looking a bit uninviting, rough or weathered, a simple solution is to throw down an outdoor rug. You could also layer two rugs to create a blissful, dreamy, boho vibe in your yard. Use these to create a focal area for lounging and entertaining. Place a few of your potted ferns and plants nearby, and you’ll have the ultimate summer oasis.
Hang Some Lights
Plants, rugs and lights are a winning combo when you need to liven up any outdoor space. So don’t forget to add some twinkling lights to the mix. Lanterns and string bulbs are best for creating a warm, cozy and inviting ambience.
Add a Water Feature
For those who want to truly Zen out, a water feature is a worthy addition. The soothing sound of water trickling through a fountain is undeniably relaxing. Plus, it can also add a focal feature to your backyard.
Hire a Landscaper
Sometimes, if the yard is too far gone, it can be a lot of work to take on. If this sounds like your outdoor space, hire a landscaper instead. They can come in to revive your entire lawn and garden, so all you have to do is dedicate time to enjoy it.
