backyard designYour backyard is like an empty canvas sitting in front of the painter, ready to take on the creative ideas running through your imagination. Your backyard design can encompass a unique blend of beauty, convenience, timeless style, and functionality. Although it may seem difficult to take on such a challenge, a new backyard design is in fact a perfectly achievable project that enables you to convert your ideas into reality. You can create a relaxing and inviting recreational space where you can spend wonderful time with your family and friends.

Clear Up the Clutter

If your backyard is not appropriately landscaped and decorated, then it is probably a place where you deposit everything that you don’t want to see lying around in the front yard. In order to put together a backyard design that reflects your needs and personal taste, you have to start by clearing up the clutter. This can mean tidying up yard waste like leaves, tree branches and overgrown gardens, or clearing away lawn equipment or backyard toys.

This is also the perfect time to sort things out and get rid of all the things that you don’t really need. Others can be placed in an orderly fashion in the garage or any other places where you keep tools and so on. Now, if you feel that there are too many things that you need and they require a proper storage room, keep that in mind so that you can create an attractive storage shed in your backyard to keep everything in good order.

Measure and Draw

It is time to put to practice your designing abilities. The first step is to make a sketch of your backyard with all the necessary measurements. An important aspect of measuring your backyard is to determine its position in relation to your house and your neighbors. You need to see whether your yard sits bellow or above the surrounding terrain, including your home.

Determine the Problems

The role of a backyard design is really to optimize your back yard space as far as functionality and appearance go. You don’t want a backyard that looks amazing but gets easily flooded several times a year. There are many problems that can occur in a land that has never been modeled into a living space, so your next task is to carefully assess everything you know about your backyard that may constitute a problem. Things to be considered are:

  • Where the snow usually sits in the winter
  • Which corner or area gets the most wind
  • Which areas hold water even after a small rain

Considering these factors before you start planning gardens, decks and patio spaces will ensure that your backyard space remains functional and in good condition for years to come.

Design Your Dream Backyard

Once the backyard is all cleared up, and potential problems identified, you can proceed with choosing the backyard design that best suits your situation, preferences, and needs.  This design should also incorporate the style and color of the outdoor patio furniture you will be incorporating. Think about matching your patio furniture to the feel of your overall backyard design, choosing a traditional outdoor furniture set to complement your traditional backyard, or a more modern and streamlined looking set to go with a contemporary yard design.
