Now more than ever home owners are deciding to spend money on their outdoor space, whether this be their garden, lawn or yard. As the rise in popularity of garden landscaping continues, we look at some modern themes for your garden and how you can carry them out with the help of a landscaping company.
When assessing your outdoor space you can find areas in which plants will make the appearance brighter and more spacious. Make shapes where plants can go with soil and contain them by using paving around the outside. Using plants around a walkway can make it look effective. It’s also worth looking at plants that can grow around your fencing or surrounding structures, this can give your garden a bit more personality.
Natural water feature
Whilst not necessarily cheap, installing a water feature in your garden could provide a completely different perspective. Water features link up to your water supply and can go from a small structure with water splashing around through to a large scale water fountain. If you are interested in a water feature then speak to your local landscaping company who will be able to provide you with a brochure and advice on how to best implement it. Often water features can be created with natural materials such as rocks which will give your garden a great natural look.
In the modern day many home owners are busy with their day to day duties and therefore find it a struggle to find time to cut their lawn. The good news is that there is an alternative with artificial grass. Artificial grass used to have a reputation as being tacky and not very realistic, however with more recent developments much of it looks very real. Artificial grass comes in a number of colours and is a zero maintenance solution for having a lawn, it is usually sold on a square feet basis, so the bigger the garden the more you’re likely to pay.
Block paving solutions
Often gardens can be complimented with the use of block paving. Combining a block paved area with a lawn or seating area can go along way in making your garden more flexible and varied. Block paving is available from most landscapers and can be installed in your back garden or used as a driveways, after-care packages are available for long term ware and tear.
