What Is Your Backyard Style?
No matter your backyard size or budget, you can make your back yard look great by choosing a style to unify its appearance. If your choice in furniture, décor, and landscaping is consistent, you can have a back yard that matches your personality and the look of your home.
You can bring your own eclectic style into your back yard with some funky lanterns, a mix of vintage and modern furniture, and bold colors. A good way to incorporate colors is with a fire pit. You can fill it with fire glass of any color, available in vibrant hues and varying shapes to match your personality and backyard style.
This is a great style for a modern, minimalistic feel. If the rest of your home is modern and edgy, extend that look into your back yard with modern-looking stone pavers, neatly trimmed plants arranged in straight lines or symmetrically, and a striking copper fire bowl.
Cottage gardens can be free-flowing and slightly chaotic. A picket fence in the midst of the chaos could be a nice touch, as would a lattice arbor, a stone retaining wall, a decorative fountain or a footpath filled with gravel.
Although you might associate English gardens with high walls and topiary, there are a number of things you can do in your own back yard that aren’t as complex, but which still provide the romantic feel of a traditional English country garden. If you can add a brick or stone path, roses or other fragrant flowers, or nicely clipped hedges, you’ll be well on your way to having an English-inspired garden.
