Your backyard garden has all the potentials to be a nice place for family and friends to hang out, or have a barbecue party. Therefore, you have to design it to be as beautiful and comfortable as possible. Check out these fabulous backyard design ideas to uncover some trends homeowners are raving right now.
1) A totally organic garden
Fruit and vegetable gardens are increasingly popular nowadays, as more people started to eat clean and prefer organic kitchen supply and therefore, an organic garden has started to be seen everywhere. You can plant basic kitchen needs, ranged from tomatoes, cabbages, chili, green onions, to mouth-watering fruits such as mango, guava, and even mandarin.
2) Have some warmth in the backyard
An outdoor backyard fireplace (or fire pit, if you like it) has long been so popular, and you may adopt the style for your garden too. If you happen to have a swimming pool in your backyard, you can add a warm fire pit in front of a cozy outdoor seating area. You can also choose an outdoor fireplace, with lingering comfortable seating for a hang out spot.
3) Make it a barbecue headquarter
With swimming pool or not, a backyard garden is a perfect place for weekly family barbecue routines. Fire pits are surely cool, but nothing compared to a grill. You can roast sausages or marshmallow over a fire pit, but for burgers and steak? Sure you got to fire that grill up!
4) Elegant hardscape for a lush landscape
Landscaping experts suggest balancing a beautifully planted backyard garden with one or more of the types of hardscape. You can try stacked natural stones, paver patios, and pathways. These hardscape areas also make a perfect barbecue spot.
5) Try an outdoor dining area
Ever wanted to have your meals outdoor? Just give an outdoor dining area a try. Pick a set of comfortable and durable outdoor dining furniture such as a wooden table or a set of rattan chairs with cushy cushions to have people lingering for coffee, cakes, and conversation.
6) Thinking about an outdoor living space? Go for it!
In addition to your warm and beautiful indoor living room, why don’t try to place an outdoor one in the middle of your lush backyard garden? A Wooden deck is surely tempting, and you can match its natural look with wooden or stone fire pit, wooden seating and dozens of colorful, cushy pillows. But if you want a durable, low-maintenance surface, consider using composite materials. You can also use a pergola to add some shades and style.
