If you are tired of your dull, lifeless backyard and feel envious of your neighbors’ stunning exterior designs, you should make 2019 the year you overhaul the outdoor space to create your mini sanctuary.

Thankfully, transforming your yard doesn’t need to cost the earth, as there are simple tactics that can inject color, comfort, and style. Read the five ways to make your backyard the envy of your neighborhood:

Create a Patio Area

Do you want to add outdoor furniture or a firepit into your backyard? Create a stunning patio area that can transform the look and feel of your garden. It can also provide a smooth, clean space to add an outdoor kitchen or to create a safe play area for your children.

Care for Your Lawn

To develop a vibrant green lawn that impresses your guests and neighbors, you must take the time to develop a lush landscape. For example, you can create a luscious, weed-free lawn by routinely applying both weed controller and fertilizer onto the soil throughout spring, summer, and fall. Don’t forget that you must regularly water your grass to preserve its health.

Choose the Right Furniture

Rather than buying the first item of furniture that catches your eye, think carefully about how you will use your backyard in the future. For example, if you intend to bask in the sunshine, stylish sun loungers will be a smarter decision over an outdoor dining table. 

If, however, you want to regularly invite your friends over for a coffee or a glass of wine on a summers day, you can create a social space by adding comfortable outdoor chairs, a coffee table, and an umbrella. You can even add vibrancy, texture, and personality into your backyard by investing in custom outdoor cushions.

Add a Garden Swing

Grab your nosey neighbors’ attention by adding a stylish garden swing into your exterior design. It is bound to become a focal point in your backyard. Plus, you could happily allow the hours to pass by as you swing back and forth under the summer sun. 

Stay Warm and Cozy by Installing a Fire Feature

If you want to make the most of your backyard throughout the seasons, there are numerous fire features available to ensure you are warm and cozy outside. You can guarantee your neighbors will be bursting with envy when they spot you enjoying the serenity of your garden in the middle of fall or winter, as you’ll have a fire pit or an outdoor wood-burning fireplace to keep you snug and comfortable.

If you decide to install a fireplace, there are a variety of options to choose from, such as a:

  • Hearth
  • Mantel
  • Chimney

So, if you want to tweak or change your space to make your exterior design stand out in your neighborhood, you cannot go wrong with the above options that can make you feel more relaxed in your backyard.
