3) A water feature is an essential part of a backyard landscaping. It is just as functional as it is beautiful. Water features can be many things such as fountains, ponds, pools, birdbaths, etc.. Depending on the size of water feature you choose, it can greatly regulate your backyard temperature. On a hot day sitting near a fountain can reduce the temperature to a more tolerated level. The sound of water is soothing and welcoming. It will make your time outdoors much more enjoyable.
When you have these three simple must have backyard ideas in place you will know why they are essential to your backyard landscaping ideas. Anything you do in addition to a sitting area, movable landscaping and water features will be icing on the cake!
Lights, Lights and More Lights! Outdoor lighting can create the right ambiance for your outdoor backyard living area. Electric or solar lamps made especially for lighting walkways, garden beds or even outdoor fireplaces can make all the difference to the final appearance of your backyard design.
Extension rods to use in treating bushes and vines may be acquired for either the barrel pump or compressed air-sprayer. For the purpose of backyard gardening on a small scale, a sturdy hand-syringe can be employed, but as a general rule it will likely be best to spend a few dollars more and get yourself a compact tank sprayer.
Other backyard plans deal with physical structures. If you have children in your family you might want to design backyard plans for a playhouse. This playhouse can be in a tree or on the ground. Since youll want to make sure everything will be safe be sure to design good plans.
Tip: Scale the water feature to the size of your backyard. If you have a small backyard an Olympic sized pool probably would not work, just as if you have a large backyard choose something a little larger than those tabletop fountains.
