4 Ways to get your Backyard ready for Summer

As spring is nearly upon us, and summer is bearing down, there’s never been a better time to prepare your backyard for summer fun. Whether it be hosting your friends, or an evening with the kids, a comfortable backyard is a must on warm summer nights. It is vital to have a comfortable outdoor environment that allows you to not only relax but to get a little wild when you feel like it. This versatility can be achieved through your landscaping. Adding a new, hardscaped patio, steps away from a brand new fire pit, could put the finishing touches on your already beautiful space. Lucky for you, we have gathered a few ideas and ways in which you can enhance your backyard in preparation for summer. Implement these, and you will be well on your way to the backyard of your dreams this summer.

Get a Patio Upgrade

Whether your current patio is small and bare, or you are just looking for a backyard upgrade, a patio is the perfect place to start. A great place for hosting the family, they are also incredibly easy to maintain once installed. The extra living space can do wonders, moving toys and equipment outside that previously took up precious space in your home. Paver patios have become increasingly popular, and there are many designs to choose from. These stone patios are extremely durable, and you can get them installed in various materials such as brick or natural stone. As this is a pretty serious project, getting your landscaping contractor involved is going to be the way to go.

Add some GreeneryĀ 

You can use the installation of updated trees and shrubs to create a more private backyard space. In doing so you also add a lush, green feel that completes your landscape. This can increase the visual appeal of your backyard, as well as your property value. Greenery of this kind requires less maintenance, and turns your backyard into a well manicured paradise.

Think about a Boulderscape

Much of the beauty found in backyard waterscapes, comes from the stone. Between rock gardens, stone beds and decorative rock, landscaping with rock adds a great natural element to your yard. You can go so many different ways with boulderscaping, such as a stone fire pit, or a low maintenance addition to your plant beds. Adding a feature like this to your yard, can make it scream luxury. Sure to impress your neighbors, friends, or potential buyers, boulderscapes have so much upside potential. Dream Greener specializes in decorative boulderscaping, and our team is more than prepared to take on your project.

Paved Pathways

If your yard already features a great garden space, paved pathways can be a great way to show it off. Incorporating these pathways as guides around your outdoor space, you can enhance the look and feel of your backyard, and emphasize your plant material. These stone pathways can be tailored to your exact specifications. Size, color and material can be determined by you, creating a cohesive space that you and your loved ones can enjoy all summer 2021.
