Our Top Landscape Design Ideas

Install Concrete Pavers

One project that can instantly transform an outdoor space is to install concrete pavers in your yard. The backyard is a great option for this, and you can add more usable space to your outdoor area in a way that also adds to its beauty. If you love grilling outside and you’d love a little space on which to enjoy your meal, this is a great option.

If you want to take it up a notch, you could also look into building a pergola to cover your new space. The end result is really stunning and useful, and it can even add some value to your property.

Add Some Shape To Your Lawn

If your lawn is currently shaped in a square or a rectangle, it’s worth considering if you have other options. We’re certainly not saying that you need to go overboard, but adding some subtle curves can make a large visual impact. Consider rounding the corners of your lawn or adding some waves here and there.

Does your lawn go all the way to the fence? Think about how you can shape that space, and then add river rock to the perimeter. This adds a nice element to your design and it also makes mowing a little bit easier; in other words, it’s a win/win!

Consider Pathways

Are there any spots in your lawn that are worn down because they see plenty of foot traffic? If so, why not make it official and install pavers or bricks to create an honest-to-goodness pathway? It’s one area of landscape design in which a little bit of effort can go a long way.

And, as an added benefit, it will actually make it a little bit easier to traverse from the front to the backyard.
