landscapingIs your backyard your sanctuary from life’s daily stress? For many of us, the backyard is the place you go to hang out with your family and invite friends over for barbeques. However, many Americans don’t find that backyard oasis they desire. We do lots of living in the backyard so we want them to be relaxing and beautiful, as well as comfortable. Sometimes, as much as we want to create the perfect space, most of us just don’t have the creativity or know-how to pull it off. If you need some good tips and ideas for creating your perfect backyard space, then read on…

Here are some landscaping ideas for creating your perfect backyard:

Bird Sanctuary

As you work to identify the things that make YOU relaxed, consider creating a bird paradise. The main idea here is to create a space where birds want to stay awhile and rest. Bird watching can be very relaxing and entertaining, as well as calming. The way your landscaping is designed plays a big role in attracting many kinds of bird life. A few things to do in order to attract birds can be as simple as adding bird feeders around the yard as well as utilizing plants and trees that are attractive to birds. Another thing to consider is adding a bird bath for the birds to come and have a drink or just play. The perfect finishing touch to this kind of backyard? Why, a hammock, of course! It’s the perfect way to lie back and relax while you watch and wait for the birds to show up for a visit.

Natural Oasis

Perhaps the best designer is Mother Nature herself and she gives us loads of inspiration. Take some of her grand creations and add them to your backyard space. A natural, organic environment is a wonderful way to create an atmosphere in which to relax. Select natural materials that reflect the beauty of the area. “Natural” doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy that hot tub in the back yard, but maybe you can choose something like a cedar hot tub, which reflects the natural feel. Natural materials could also include fences made from wood, tables with stone bases, ceramic bird baths or all wooden outdoor furniture.

There are so many more ideas, but just take a look at the environment around you and become inspired to create that perfect relaxing space you crave. Remember-there is no right or wrong here. It’s all about doing what makes you feel the most relaxed, whether that’s playing basketball or reading a good book under the shade of a tree. Enjoy the creative process! You will enjoy it for many years to come.
