3 Backyard Landscaping Projects to Try

Are you feeling uninspired by your yard? Or maybe you just want to get your hands dirty in a fun outdoor project this spring? If so, check out these three landscaping projects.

1. Add Plants

Planting flowers and shrubs can be one of the best ways to make your backyard beautiful. If you want to tackle the project on your own, be sure to measure out your space and determine what grows well in your area. If you feel a bit overwhelmed, hiring garden landscapers or an exterior designer can be a big help. Don’t forget to utilize different heights and colors when you start to plant!

2. Ponds and Fountains

Flowing water can add a lovely element of relaxation to your yard. You can easily install a small pond or in-ground pool in your yard. Adding koi or other kinds of fish can really make your pond feel full of life. If you decide to add a water element to your yard, pond aerators and fountains can keep the water moving, reducing the likelihood that they’ll become a breeding ground for water-loving bugs.

3. Vegetable Gardens

If you would rather not plant flowers or shrubs and want to do something really practical with your backyard space, consider planting a vegetable garden! A lot of vegetables are very easy to grow, and some can be grown year-round, depending on where you live. A vegetable garden can be a fun project for the whole family, not only because you get to see veggies sprout to life before your eyes, but you get to put them to good use in the kitchen!

Your backyard can have so much potential and can become a space you love to unwind in. Consider these three possibilities the next time you are considering making a change in your yard.
