If you want your property to be impressive, stunning and stylish, you should think about the landscape around your home. Landscaping is a fantastic way to reinvent your home and ensure that it is one of the best places on the street. It will stand out to passers-by, and you’ll love coming home to it after a hard day at work. To do this, we’re going to think about two areas of your home, the front garden, and the back. You can think of the front as a chance to impress the neighbors whereas the back is really just for your own personal enjoyment.
There are plenty of cool ideas for both areas of your home so let’s get started by considering front water features.
Showing Off The Front Of Your Home
Immediately, you should consider the possibility of adding a water feature to the front of your property. Nothing is more eye-catching or visually impressive than this unique accessory. You can get water features in lots of different styles, some of which look natural and others that have a completely different aesthetic from the rest of the garden.
The classic choice would be a stone water fountain in the center of your front lawn. Aside from the obvious expense, this is a rather retro choice. Most people now opt for more modern and interesting designs. For instance, you can even purchase a metallic water feature for your home.
Although, if you want our recommendation, you should try something completely natural. Working with a landscape, you can create a rock formation somewhere in your garden and lay pipes to ensure water runs across and over it. Visually, this could be a strong presence at the front of your home and look fantastic.
Or, alternatively, you could consider adding a stone sculpture to the front garden. This could be the centerpiece of the yard and will certainly have your neighbors talking. Just be careful about making it too intrusive, or you might get a few complaints.
A great idea when designing your front garden would be to give it layers with different heights. This will give it a unique style, and it can even make the front of your home look larger. So, on one level you might have soil with freshly planted flowers, then above this a beautiful grass verge and finally an elevated path around your home.
Basking In The Beauty Of Your Back Yard
As for the backyard, we can still start by thinking about water features. But this time, let’s consider something a little more grand and luxurious. We are of course talking about a full size, built in pool. The practical aspects of a pool are hard to miss. In the summer, you’ll have a place to cool off the workout and relax. Particularly, if you look at the latest fiberglass pools with sunbathing areas, half underwater. These cool features are ultra stylish and the perfect place to sit back and enjoy your garden.
However, pools are also quite beautiful, particularly when the sun catches the water at just the right time of day, making it glisten and shine.
As well as a pool, you might also want to think about creating a sitting area on an elevated veranda. It will be the perfect place to enjoy drinks and meals with the neighbors, family, and friends. Remember, these days you don’t have to settle for cheap, poor garden furniture. Instead, you can get glorious furniture that will provide the same level of comfort as your front room. You can even install and build a beautiful stone fire for the center of the seating area.
Lastly, you should consider the possibility of building an outdoor kitchen area in your backyard. This could be set up near the pool, with a beautiful place to cook through the summer months. Or, you might have it next to the house under the shelter of an extended roof. You could even have it completely separate at the end of your garden under a gorgeous terrace. This is a great way to fill your garden if you have a large open space at the back of your house.
Finally, if you want some privacy, you can plant some screener trees. These grow fast and furious around the property, providing shade and protection from gazing eyes.
We hope you have fun using these ideas to add some glorious ostentatious designs to your garden. We’re sure you won’t be disappointed with the results of these landscaping possibilities.
