7 Tips To Make Your Backyard Oasis An At-Home Paradise:

To have a knockout outdoor space, it helps to have a well-thought-out design and to take into consideration your home’s architecture as well as the dimensions of the areas you want to decorate. Imagine you have a blank canvas and mockup your backyard on paper or digitally to get a good idea of what layout will work best. 
Beach chair and umbrella icon Your Purpose
What functionality are you looking for? Playful and fun, relaxing and chill, or more formal? If you have young children, you might want to have a sandbox or swing set. If you like to entertain, an outdoor kitchen, comfortable seating, or flat screen tv with booming speakers can bring all of the comforts of your home’s interior to your great outdoors.
Beach chair and umbrella icon What’s Your Shade
And, by that, we mean what color fits your style? From cushions to woodwork to flooring, it’s important to have a cohesive blend of materials and fabrics. Whether you prefer bold and bright or a softer palette, adding accessories with your favorite accent colors can help to illuminate your space.

If you have a green thumb, or you are a budding horticulturist, your backyard can be transformed into a peaceful escape full of greenery, fruits, and vegetables, and beautiful blooms for all seasons. The trick is to determine if you want low or high-maintenance varieties of plant life, and it helps to stick with those that are native to your area.
Beach chair and umbrella icon Light Up The Night
Strategically placed lighting can enhance your outdoor ambiance and transform your evenings with dancing shadows and a soft elegant glow. You can also save energy and opt for solar-powered lighting in many shapes and styles.

Nothing quite beats an outdoor water source to cool off in the summer and heat up in the winter. From jacuzzis to infinity pools, waterfalls, and water slides, we can delight in their ability to provide that something extra and special to our backyard view. Maintaining these wonderful joys of activity takes persistence, consistency, and patience, depending on their complexity. Be sure to plan accordingly when creating and looking after these backyard escapes.
