    Landscaping Ideas for Your Yard

One of the benefits of having a yard is the fun you can have landscaping it. Imagine your yard with a
garden pond enhanced by a pond bridge, wooden "playscapes" for children, walkthrough gardens, and
a selection of trees, shrubs, and other flora to balance the yard and enhance visual appeal. Whether
your yard is big enough to include all those items or not, any yard, big or small, can be made to look
appealing. Here are some basic ideas.


Repeating like elements such as plants or rocks throughout the landscape will help unify different
areas to each other. Perennials and summer bulbs can be used to fill in areas that need color.

If you have children or grandchildren, a children's play area is needed. Wooden play sets can be
attractive and a lot of fun. A gravel walkway around the yard provides a path for a tricycle or small bike
and saves the grass from being trampled down. A large tree provides a place for a tree house. The
possibilities are endless. There are landscaping books especially for designing child-friendly yards.


The lawn is usually the largest area of any yard. A lawn is beautiful, but if you surround your lawn with
beds of flowers and shrubs and with a number of trees for shade, it turns a lawn into a Garden of Eden.


Place shrubs around the perimeter of the lawn. In the foreground, flowering shrubs are a good choice,
with the bigger shrubs behind. To add beauty to your shrubs use spread lighting which creates a
spherical pattern of light to highlight groups of shrubs and flowers.

Shrubs can complement the color of your house. For example, forest green trim on a house is
complimented by shrubs with yellow leaves, and homes with neutral features can always use a few

splashes of dramatic color in their landscaping.

Plant a few annuals near the mailbox and an odd number of shrubs or hedges in front of the house to
create depth. As you drive around notice how that adds a touch of class to a house.


Some people also like to place flowers in strategic places as part of the overall design to give the yard
even more attitude. With some well placed shrubs and wonderfully colorful flowers you can transform
your home from a run of the mill house to a showplace of style and grace. It is easy.


Building a garden pond can be a very satisfying project, and if done right will be the first thing people
notice. Just about every yard has grass, shrubs and tress, but a pond adds something special,
especially if there is a waterfall going into it.

Building a garden pond is not just a matter of digging a hole, lining it with plastic and filling it with water.
You need a filter system to keep it clean and to aerate it, and you need a way to keep algae from
taking over.


Rock can add drama to any landscaped yard. Rock also reduces the amount of water required to keep
the yard looking green. If you live in an area that receives little rainfall decorating a yard with rock,
whether it is in spots around the yard or the entire landscape, is a desired alternative.

Rock gardens really can be breathtaking when done right. Adding drought-resistant plants compliments
dry rock landscaping well. This is a popular alternative to the vast areas of lawn traditionally found
around houses in some parts of the world.

Rock can be used in several areas of the yard. Walkways, groundcover, walls, ponds and waterfalls
are a few ideas where rock can be used with stunning results.

When using rock for groundcover and path work, it's necessary to have a separator between the soil
and groundcover. Rock walkways provide an attractive substitute for expensive and unsightly
pavement, and will go with the rest of the landscaping.

Rock walls make an excellent alternative to white picket fences that may seem out of place depending
on your surrounding environment and neighborhood. Water features can be as simplistic as a statue
acting as a fountain to highly complex designs that mimic natural features with multiple terraces and
water cascading over a rock bed.


Landscaping a yard is one of the pleasures of life. It's a chance to add beauty to your surroundings for
the benefit of yourself, your family and your neighbors. With some planning and research, and maybe
some advice from a professional, anyone can design and create a yard that is stunning.

 Determining what to do in your yard can sometimes be quite overwhelming. By researching different
sources, you can come up with many landscaping ideas for your lawn that will give you years of

Some people are just without talent when it comes to gardening. Unfortunately, this describes me
perfectly. When I moved into my first home, one of my concerns was my yard and landscaping. I felt
that I didn’t even have a clue about what to do with my yard, so I did some research and found some
great ideas to use in landscaping my yard.

The first thing that I did was create a list of the items that I wanted in my landscaping project. I
imagined my dream yard and then wrote down the landscaping ideas that I gleaned from this creative
work. When you start your list of landscaping ideas, start with the small, short-term projects and then
work up to the more time-consuming, expensive projects.

I walked around my neighborhood next so that I could see several different styles of landscaping. This
is a free way to get some ideas for your own yard and you get exercise. You may have to carefully
think about the layout of your own yard in comparison with your neighbors so that you can get a better
idea of what will and will not work in your own yard. I even asked for my neighbor’s opinions about
what items I should consider important in my landscaping. This gave me a great deal of first-hand,
helpful advice.

Next, I chose to visit a professional gardener to see what kinds of things that they would recommend
for my yard. I told them what I was thinking about and they helped me determine which ideas would
work in my yard and which would not. This was a very important step, because they helped to save me
time and money on things that would not work in my backyard.

You will find that workers at your local gardening center will be very happy to share their landscaping
experiences with you. They will be able to help you with the layout of your backyard and they can
recommend plants and flowers that will grow well in your particular region of the country. This is a great
place to get first-hand advice.

Print magazines and websites are two other sources that I like to use to find landscaping ideas. It is
important to carefully consider any items that you find using these two sources, because they may not
be right for your yard or your climate.

My search for knowledge definitely worked to my good. I learned quite a bit and now I can share my
landscaping experience with my friends and neighbors, too.
