There is no better way to relax and recharge from a long, hectic day than enjoying a few peaceful moments in nature. Of course, we are not always able to go for a walk in the park or go camping in a forest, but your much-needed oasis can be your backyard. No matter if you live in Nice or Adelaide, if you have a large garden or a small patio, you can transform it into the most amazing outdoor space. Investing a bit of effort, creativity, and time will pay off once your turn your cluttered backyard into a serene and majestic getaway.
Clean up the mess
This should be your first step in creating a lovely yard. You want to get rid of any unnecessary garden furniture and decorations, old toys your kids don’t use anymore, broken chairs and umbrellas, as well as overgrown flower bushes and hedges. You should clean all the toys and equipment that is still in good condition and gift them to friends and family, or resell them. Simply, make sure that your backyard is clean and neat so that you have a clean slate to envision your future oasis.
Chose the right furniture
Furniture is certainly an important part of any backyard. As you want this little part of nature to be your safe and relaxing place, you want the furniture to be comfortable and enjoyable, whether you decide to spend only half an hour a day there or the whole afternoon. Another factor to take into consideration is the design of the chairs, table, etc. The option most people go for and that is most popular worldwide is the vintage-style garden furniture. So, you can easily find classic, bentwood chairs in Adelaide and be sure that they will be lovely for the long Australian summers, but you can also use them to decorate your garden if you live in Nice or Berlin. Pared with a table in the same style and some retro umbrellas, they will create a sitting area that is inviting and that you can use not only in your free time, but also model an outdoor office. Surrounded by the shades of the trees and the majestic scents of the flowers, in a sitting area that resembles a vintage café, you can truly create a heavenly garden.
Don’t go overboard
You want your yard to be tranquil, so you shouldn’t go for a dozen different colored flowers. Two or three predominant colors, together with abundant greenery, will make just the perfect setting. If you have a large garden, you can then opt to create several color schemes in different areas, so that you can enjoy this piece of your home during all seasons. Moreover, you don’t want to clutter with plants, and you especially don’t want to make the sitting area or the pathways unapproachable from all the plants. Be wise and make a beautiful space in which all the plants have their own space. The best effect is achieved if you place the larger and taller plants (trees or flowers) so that they make a frame, for example, in the entrance to your sitting area or along the pathway, while the smaller ones can be behind them.
Opt for plants that are more than just beautiful
Although an important function of all the trees and flowers is their aesthetic that decorates the space, you should go for those plants that also have another function, like having a gorgeous scent. Another useful tip is to choose those flowers that don’t attract but repel annoying insects and opt for trees that create a shade. Additionally, you can decide to enrich your yard with trees that have an interesting fruit, whether it’ll be lemons, cherries, etc.
Finally, we can say that an exquisite backyard is definitely a precious part of a home. Don’t waste any time and start creating your stunning garden as soon as possible.
