What does your backyard mean to you? This should be a special place, a haven for you and your family, a sanctuary away from the rest of the world. If you don’t feel like yours it right in that area, that’s OK. I have some things to tell you that will help you with creating backyard bliss in your yard today. So many people today just let their backyards go. It turns into a jungle that no one ever ventures into. Sometimes this is because people lead such busy lives that they don’t have time to keep up their backyards like they should or like they want to.
When creating a backyard environment, you should take some time to think about what type of wildlife you would like in your backyard, up close and personal. Being petrified of snakes and then creating an environment that snakes find irresistible would be a torturous mistake. This example emphasizes the importance of considering what type of animals you want frequenting your backyard. Specific plant life and bodies of water attract certain kinds of animals, bugs, and insects. Hence, in your backyard environment, you can plant greenery and create man-made bodies of water to entertain the type of wildlife you are comfortable with.
Create the Tropical Landscape Effect, Now that you have a foundation, or backdrop, it is time to add the tropical effect plants to turn that normal backyard or swimming pool landscape into your own tropical paradise. Here, you’ll use true tropical plants that have to be treated as annuals in your area, unless you are willing to go to great lengths to protect them from winter chill. There are many plants that are tropical or sub-tropical that, with a little protection, will come back from roots each spring (i.e. bananas, elephant ears). Then, there are the interesting, tropical looking plants that may have no problems at all with winter weather.
Backyard Resorts – There you have it. I sincerely hope you find this fun, useful, and at least marginally instructional. This little hobby has been an absolute joy for me over the years. Remember, my intent was never to give you a Backyard Resort in a Box, with step-by-step instructions on exactly what, when, and how to do everything. That just wouldn’t be possible in a single article and, even if it were, it would take all the fun out of this little adventure. The idea is to give you a taste of what’s possible and hopefully to whet your appetite with a few ideas and tools to get you started. Beyond that, you have all kinds of creative license in creating your own personal Backyard Resort. Now, get started and, most of all, have fun.
Backyard fireplaces add ambiance and warmth to your outdoor living area. Not only do they add to the decor but they are the place where most of the entertaining and conversations take place. There are many things that you need to think about when researching backyard fireplaces. What are you going to use it for? Do you want something fancy or plainer? What type of design do you want? How much room is in the backyard or on the patio for a fireplace? These are just a few of the questions you should ask yourself while you are researching.
