Landscape Ideas: Turning Your Backyard Into A Beautiful Private Garden

Posted on: 11 December 2014

Turning the average yard into a romantic and scenic garden starts with unique landscaping.  The best backyard garden includes additions like interlocking pathways and patios, ponds, unique fountains and your favorite foliage. No matter if your backyard is small and pinned in between two neighboring yards or if it is large and sprawling over an entire acre, creating a private garden starts with putting together a landscape plan.

Choosing A Focal Point

The focal point of your garden does not have to be right in the middle of it. However, it does need to be the aspect of the garden that draws the eye first upon entering it. A focal point is also the part of your garden that everything in it follows.

For example, if you place a koi pond in the center of your garden, you might consider a light Japanese design for the rest of the area. A robust flowerbed could be the start of the garden with an English touch you might find in medieval castle courtyard.

How Interlocking Fits Into Your Garden

When you think about a relaxing, romantic home garden, you might picture in your mind cobblestone pathways or red brick patios. When cobblestones and bricks are laid properly, they are done so in an interlocking manner that helps to ensure their durability and gives them an artistic appeal. Bricks or stones arranged in a haphazard manner are never done accidentally when it comes to beautiful interlocking pathways and patios.

Privacy Is A Necessary Aspect Of A Backyard Garden

Many backyard gardens include privacy fencing, especially at homes in close proximity to one another. Choosing a fence that best fits into your landscape theme is important for enhancing it. You do not want the perfect Victorian style garden only to have it ruined by a modern chain link fence with a few strands of ivy growing on it.

The fence that offers the greatest level of privacy is one that is of solid construction and offers you siding that can be easily decorated to fit into your theme. Tall, wooden privacy fences are the best option for the private garden.

Don't Forget Comforting Accessories

Coming home to your own private backyard garden at the end of a long day can be the best way to relax and unwind. Adding lawn furnishings that are comfortable and attractive is a good way to enhance your garden. Patios with umbrellas and tables are a good idea for being able to enjoy sunny day without being hot or blinded by the sun. Patios with awnings that fit into your garden's decorative scheme are enjoyable on rainy days.
