If you are seeking a backyard that you can be proud of, then with a little creativity, there are a wide number of backyard landscaping ideas that can transform your backyard landscape into much more than a swing set with grass.
Here are a few creative garden landscaping ideas to consider:
Are you attempting to squeeze a big garden into a small backyard space? With some organization it can be done quite effectively. Consider choosing container friendly climbing and trailing plants that create a space-saving vertical garden. Window boxes, baskets and pots filled with trailing plants can be a way of accomplish this goal. Try an upright plant holder pole with hooks that can hold multiple pots in a straight-up row. You can add something different to each pot for different interests that you have. Terraces and raised beds are another vertical option that is worth considering. Making it easy to improve your soil in limited areas, and if built sturdily can provide a seating option as well. Training and climbing plants can be a great option if you have a garden wall. You can add hooks as well or brackets to hang baskets, while small flowers can be grown in the cracks between stones. A wall mounted fountain is another great idea that you can add to list of small backyard landscaping ideas.
A garden does not require flowers to bring a tremendous amount of color and appeal to a garden area. Foliage gardens are low maintenance backyard landscaping ideas that are as much for show as any flower garden can offer. Foliage plants in golden yellow, cool blue, rich wine red and silvery gray can fill your landscape with tremendous color all year round. Plants that provide interesting shapes as well as color can be use in addition to the options listed above.
When it comes to backyard landscape ideas, it does not only have to be about color. Plants with touchable textures and similar elements can add to your gardening experience. They are also safe for young children to touch and are good for the visually impaired. You will be surprised at how many touchable plants are available, so let your self go crazy and make your self a touchy-feeling garden for your pleasure.
There are hundreds of backyard landscaping ideas that can transform your garden into something special and magic. While the front yard may take precedence, do not neglect the back either and take time to consider as many landscaping ideas as you can find.
