Decorate with Paving Stones

Backyard landscaping ideas can be as easy as adding paving stones. Create a garden with stones and flowering plants.

Add a Water Feature

If your backyard has a drainage problem that causes runoff and erosion, capitalize on the problem and turn the area into a water feature.

Soften a Deck with Landscaping

Improve the view from below your deck by adding planting beds to camouflage the leggy supports. It not only hides the deck’s unsightly underbelly, but it also adds tons of color through the summer.

Make a Grand Entrance

First impressions count. That’s why it’s important to pay special attention to your backyard’s entry. Nothing ruins the view faster than a rusty gate or muddy path.

Create a Cozy Corner

Get up close and personal with your flower border by tucking in a small sitting area amid the beds. Or in this case install a bit of privacy fencing, evergreens and add a string of lights to complete the cozy effect.

Add a Pergola

When you plan your backyard, remember that pergolas and arbors are often more effective when used as a stand-alone architectural element. Here, for example, a pergola constructed of thick black timbers makes this small seating area look like an art installation.

Create a Sunken Patio

There’s something really inviting about a sunken garden or patio. If you have a sloping backyard, consider carving out a section to create a private retreat.

Start a Veggie Garden

Raising your own fresh vegetables and herbs is easy. All you need is a sunny backyard to create a food garden that’s as attractive as it is edible.
