How To Landscape Your Home

May 11, 2020













 

Many people put landscaping at the bottom of their list when it comes to designing their home. Yet curb appeal is one of the most important aspects to selling a home! We’re here to show you how using the same principles you use to design the interior of your home can apply to how you landscape your home.
 
Determine The Functionality Of The Space
What would you like your backyard to be? Do you want to grow some vegetables? Do you want to use a part of it as an entertaining space? Do your kids need somewhere to play and get out all of their energy? Draw a few rough sketches of your backyard and plot out possible layouts of what your space could look like.
 
When drawing your layout sketches, consider the sun and wind patterns of your backyard. If you want to place a patio, you might want to put it on the west side of your home where it will get lots of afternoon sun. However, it is important to note that if you plan on having dinner guests over in August, this part of the home won’t be relaxing – it will be just hot. If you are thinking about putting a fire pit into your backyard make sure it’s not in a part of the backyard that gets a lot of wind as that will quickly and regularly extinguish any fires you try to make.
 
Test Out Your Design
Once you’ve created a plan that you feel comfortable with, test it out! Sometimes, the only way to learn if something works for you or your family is if you try it out. The more time you spend outdoors the more you’ll appreciate which parts of your yard get the most light and which need extra attention.
 
Start Small
HGTV has skewed many people’s minds. Yes, in three days it is possible to have a completely redesigned front yard and back yard. However, you might not realize they have a crew of 60 doing all that intensive work! Enjoy the process of building a garden or defining a space. Start small – that way you can see what you like and easily correct it if you don’t. Avoid all shortcuts because it is very easy to make a garden look sloppy.
 
Create A Focal Point
The key to a well-defined space is a focal point, or a series of focal points. This could be a sculpture, a tree, a series of shrubs. Plant or place something in your yard that will draw your eyes. To ensure that this piece is your focal piece ensure that there are variations in size, shape and colour in your yard. A great suggestion would be to put your tall plants against the brick wall of your home or in the back of a flower bed and create paths that lead up to that space.
 
Has this got your green thumb going? We’d love to see what your ideas for your front and back yard will look like!
