A landscaping project does more than just beautify your yard. When a landscaping project is done right, it opens up your outdoors to various activities and functions you never thought you can do in your own backyard. In this blog, we’ll be giving your 3 landscaping ideas you can explore for a more active outdoor lifestyle.
Planting a Kitchen Garden
If you’re into embracing a more organic food diet this year, it’s best to start right in your own backyard planting your favorite herbs and vegetables that grow in your gardening zone. It can be a garden plot carved out of your existing yard or a raised bed. To ensure your edible plants will thrive, a soil test is necessary so that the plants will get the right nutrients and yield a better produce.
Industrial Zen for a Small Yard
A smaller yard calls for space prioritization and carefully selected plants that deserves its place in creating a calming area. An industrial zen can contain plant containers that keep plants from running wild and spreading to other parts of the yard. Flowering plants that also release a calming scent should also be favored.
Minimalist Xeriscape for an Eco-Friendly Yard
Composed of native plants which doesn’t need much water, a xeriscape fits well with a modern home with its clean lines and sharp edges. Instead of a green lawn, gravel and other pebble mixes act as the groundcover. A xeriscape yard is best for those who would like a low maintenance garden. Xeriscape yards are also a great choice for those with fire pits as plants naturally chosen for xeriscaping are also fire-resistant.
Whichever landscaping idea you’re choosing to implement this year, always keep in mind which fits your home and outdoor needs. Those who love to cook may opt for having a kitchen garden, some who need a retreat spot within their home might go with a zen-inspired space while those who love hanging outdoors beside a warm fire pit can choose a xeriscaped yard.
