4 Tips For A Relaxing Landscape Design

Luxury homeowners who seek a respite from their busy, modern lives are placing more importance on a well-designed outdoor area than ever before. If you want to create a tranquil setting outside your home in Gates Mills, here are a few tips for a true oasis in your backyard.

Attract the Birds

If you want to relax to the calls of a songbird, or perhaps lure in a swarm of butterflies, it all starts with choosing the right plants. Perennials are often the best choice, as they’re particularly hardy and easy to grow, while also bearing seeds that birds love to feed on. With the right flowers, you’ll have your own little bird sanctuary in the backyard in no time.

Create a Natural Screen

Privacy, of course, is key to truly feeling like you can let loose outside your home without having to worry about any prying eyes. While a fence is always an effective option, another method is to create a natural screen using thick hedges, evergreens, or other large plantings to totally envelope the backyard. Take it a step further with both fencing and hedges to ensure complete privacy and verdant scenery in your Claridon home.

Add a Water Feature

A water feature, like a reflecting pool or manmade stream, is always a surefire way to create a relaxing environment in the backyard in Huntsburg. Whether you’re watching ripples in a pond or listening to the sounds of cascading water, you’ll feel transported to a private haven of serenity each time you step outside the house.

Use Climbing Plants

If you want to create a roof over your head to block out the sun while lounging outside, climbing plants are the perfect way to do just that. After all, there’s no better way to add to the lush ambiance than a pergola that’s covered in honeysuckle, hydrangeas, or roses.
