As autumn approaches in Florida, it’s the perfect time to start the backyard landscaping project you’ve been dreaming of. The weather is cooler, and consistent days of sunshine are close ahead. If you’re looking for unique ways to change up your garden look, try these:
Who says you need a porch or patio to create a cozy place to sit and enjoy your backyard? There are hundreds of different ways to create a patio-less entertainment area, as long as you have a level space in your backyard and can invest in quality outdoor furniture. Tuck your outdoor seating and some tables between several trees for a beautiful, shaded entertainment space that is equally comfortable and affordable to design.
If your property is built on a slope, you can make a comfortable and cozy entertainment area by building retaining walls and flattening the seating area below the ground level. This creates a “sunken” feel, which can be made into a garden area, fire pit, or pond structure.
Curving flower beds
Instead of laying out your garden beds in rectangular shapes around the border, try creating circular shapes instead. This naturally creates a winding path through your backyard that can be lined with groundcover flowers or a stone pathway. You can fill your backyard space with these garden beds, or use them as borders on the path to your pool, fire pit, or play area.
A new fence can instantly add life to your landscaping if installed properly. You want a fence that will provide privacy if bordering the neighbors, and that will match the style of your outdoor decor. At FloriFence, we offer a variety of options including custom colors, toppers, and gates to suit your needs. For a backyard makeover, fencing is the perfect place to start.
