When was the last time you told a friend or coworker how much you love your home? Was it more recent than the last time you said “I need a vacation?” If you find yourself wishing to get away from home more often than relaxing in your own space, it may be time to make some changes and turn your own backyard into a personal getaway. Here are a few ideas to do just that:
Create an Entrance
Do you want your backyard or garden to feel as if you’re entering a completely different world? Establishing an entrance can separate your revitalized space from the rest of your home and neighboring yards. A trellis with vines and flowers, hardscaping and decorative shrubs can all provide a vision of what is to come, much like having a grand entrance inside of your home. The first impression will stick with your guests, and your own peace-of-mind, long after the first visit.
Of course, if you want to turn your backyard into a personal getaway, you’ll need a proper space to relax. Whether it’s a poolside oasis or covered seating area with an outdoor fireplace, creating a destination to relax will help you fall in love with your space and spend more time in your own backyard. Be sure to choose comfortable furniture, and when considering the features you want, think of your favorite vacation spots. Do you enjoy the soothing sound of water, or feeling like you’re in a tropical jungle? You can incorporate those, and more, into your own space with the help of a landscaping professional.
Your Dream Space
Your personal getaway spot can be exactly what you make it. Some may choose to keep it simple and chic, while others will fill their property from corner to corner with colorful and aromatic plants that attract birds and butterflies. Whatever your preference is - don’t hold back! It’s your space to enjoy, so make design choices that have you bragging to the entire neighborhood. Of course you don’t have to do it alone! We’re happy to listen to your ideas and wishes, and come up with a plan!
