Backyard Décor – Your backyard cannot be ignored when it comes to decorating. In many ways, your backyard is an extension of your home. Like the interior of your home, your backyard should reflect your personality, tastes and decorating style. Turn your backyard into the space you want it to be, and make sure it serves the purposes you want it to serve.
Select trees and shrubs that grow well in your area. Choose trees that provide shade. Decide if you want blooming trees and shrubs, making sure that the color of your flowers will not conflict with the colors of your house and the other flowers you have. Plant them in areas where their root systems will not interfere with underground cables, lines and pipes, and fencing.
Add flowers to your backyard. Place in planters, pots and along the paths. Choose flowers that grow well in your area, understanding the amount of work that is needed to maintain them. Make sure the flowers are not toxic to humans and pets. Decorate the containers flowers are placed according to the theme you have selected for your backyard. Create walkways to different areas of your backyard. Choose the materials for your catwalks that are easily maintained and complement the exterior of your home. Pavers, cement, gravel, and tiles can be excellent options for driveways. Take into account the amount of traffic that walkways will have and choose the materials that will cope with the amount of wear.
