Select a Theme

A theme can give you the inspiration needed to design the perfect space.

A theme could be anything such as:

  • Beach
  • Color
  • Modern
  • Rustic
  • Period

A theme is helpful for keeping ideas organized. Remodeling and making improvement can be overwhelming, and a theme helps to minimize stress.

Select the Perfect Seating

If the backyard is going to be the “new” hangout place, select furniture that is comfortable, inviting and can seat everyone in the family. Canopies are great for casting shade when the sun is directly overhead. If you are on a budget, browse local thrift stores and yard sales for tables and chairs. Decorate the seating with pillows that pop with color. Refurbish tables with fun painting patterns or paint a checkerboard to encourage family game night.

Flower Power

Flowers are a source of beauty and can bring vibrant color into your backyard. Create a flower garden in one corner or spread them around. The best Fall flowers to plant are garden mums, African daisies, Bidens, petunias, phlox, and Nemesia. Flowers are a quick and effortless way to liven up a Fall backyard.

Stone, Wood, or Sand Pathways

Pathways are a fun and sometimes adventurous thing to have in the backyard. Repurpose old wooden pallets and create a wooden walkway. Use stones to create a meandering walkway that can add depth to a yard or design a Zen Garden with sand and rake.
