Garden is a place for you to relax, retreat, and recover from stressful working days. You would want a comfortable and airy garden where you can enjoy the comfy seating and rest your body. However, is your garden ready for you? Is your backyard full of old outdoor furniture and grass? Too many things in your garden can be another reason for you to avoid enjoying break time outside.
First thing first, to renew your garden, get rid of overgrown grass and trees. Rearrange your outdoor furniture. Put away old stuff. Welcome the sunlight and fresh air that Mother Nature gives us. After that, consider these tips for turning your boring backyard into a home oasis.
Expand the view
If your house is uphill, the view must be spectacular. Let’s create an outdoor space to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Don’t let trees block your view. Build a free deck, put in some simple outdoor furniture and decorations. The airy patio and eye-resting view will blow away your tiredness.
Put in a comfy seating
We talk about deep seating, cozy seating with loungers. These outdoor seating can fit anywhere, whether poolside, on the balcony, patio or garden.
The seating must be comfortable enough to hold you back for longer rest. Simple yet elegant outdoor sofa with deep seating can be your second bed in the cozy backyard.
Build water features
The best solution for cooling off the summer is building a swimming pool. Refresh your day by dipping your body into the water in your backyard. Moreover, the blue appearance and light sound from waves create a relaxing feeling like you are on the peaceful beach or 5-star resort.
If your outdoor spaces are limited or your budget is not enough, some simple water features will be perfect for alteration. Build a small water pond and put in some tiny fishes. Or you can create a water fountain for cooling the air.
Install a hot tub
Nothing more relieve than soaking yourself in hot water under the cool wind.
Be with your beloved one or friends and let hot water and bubbles pull you out of stress zone.
Bring shade in
It’s hard to resist a lounging area under a large parasol.
Shade can also come from awnings, gazebos, big trees, or even vines from roofs. Rest your back on a comfy sofa, enjoy the view without sunlight interruption, and drink iced tea. This is what we called “home oasis”.
Select the right landscaping
It’s never easy choosing the suitable plants to match with your garden’s theme. The tip is to plant trees, vines, and scrubs to create a new refreshed mood.
Remember to consider the plants that can adapt well to your area’s climate.
Build an attractive patio or deck
Too simple and boring appearance of concrete floor with some small chairs cannot do the job. Make use of your outdoor spaces beneficially. Install a wood deck or patio mix with stone walkway.
The aesthetic looking and flexible functions create a home oasis right in your backyard. Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, this has to be in your house.
Make a private spot
Sometimes, it’s best to secure your privacy in the backyard. Build walls and fences to separate your spaces with surrounding areas. Or you can grow dense tree wall to greening your garden.
This can make your garden more mysterious and surprise your guests the first time they come in.
Add fire to your garden
A modern fire pit or a simple fireplace can create a warm atmosphere to your outdoor spaces. Imagine gathering around the fire with friends and family or on a romantic night date with your partner. Isn’t it relaxed?
Grow fragrant flowers
You can easily find lots of scented candles in the market, but how about growing some real flowers by yourself? The smell can be very strong at night, so grow some near where you relax to refresh your mind.
Bring lights outside
The shimmering light from outdoor lantern can be extremely attractive when the Sun sets. Install or hang some lights on your patio and let them guide you and your guests to your home paradise – the outdoor garden.
