Backyard waterfalls are the ultimate accent to any landscaping project and the never-ending compliments are a true testament to your pride of doing a project like this. In a matter of a single weekend, you can create a sanctuary that will pay dividends for your solitude, your pride, and it will actually increase your selling appeal when you decide to sell the home and move on. We have seen cases where the backyard waterfall was the deciding factor to a buyer wanting to purchase a home. So, when you consider the accents a backyard waterfall gives you, while you live there, it pays for itself a hundred times over when you decide to sell.
Finally backyard fireplaces can be just that, fireplaces. This style looks like your regular indoor fireplace but freestanding rather than a part of a wall. The use of spark screens will keep the embers from escaping, protecting the surroundings. These fireplaces may also come with louvers that will help control the heat. These types of fireplaces are the most controlled, although they are definitely not portable. They are also the most expensive types to purchase. You need to hire someone to construct the hearth and surrounds or be able to do it yourself as well as purchasing the fire unit. The good news is this allows you to choose the type of material that you want. You can also find fireplace kits, although they will still need to be built and put together in some way depending on the fireplace kit purchased.
Tire fire pit – one of the best materials and probably the most inexpensive once around that you could use to make them are tractor tires. You could virtually get one from any junkyard and always remember not to steal it so that you would avoid trouble from cops. Now, how would you use a tractor tire to make the fire pit? First you must find a surface in your backyard that is flat and even. Place the tractor tire in the spot that you found. Before moving on, make sure that it is pretty much far away from any materials that are easily flammable. Things like fuel, wood and paper and other stuff that are flammable should be out of sight. Also, keep it away from your house. If you happen to have concrete surface in your backyard, that would be perfect. Lay down the tire, surround it with bricks or stones and fill it with fire.
Creating a Solid Foundation, The good news is that this may start with what you already have. Here, use only things that are reliably winter hardy. This is the skeleton for your backyard landscape and we want it strong. Large trees, evergreen shrubs and small understory trees, and perennials that return year after year will set your foundation. This is completely specific to your area.
Add Some Water: For those of you who live in a landlocked area, bodies of water might not exactly be a hop, skip, and a jump away. Instead of longing for an ocean or a lake, bring a mini-version to you by putting in a fountain or a pond. A fountain or a pond can enhance your backyard, giving it a watery essence it wouldn’t otherwise have. These might not be much like the ocean – they won’t allow you to snorkel or surf – but, look on the bright side: you won’t have to worry about sharks.
