Summer is here! And while most homeowners are undoubtedly excited to kick back, relax, and soak up the sun in their backyard, many are dreading the impending responsibilities that come with this outdoor season. From lawn repair to basic landscaping to other chores, summer means countless trips to the hardware store and hours upon hours toiling in the hot sun.
Sounds like the opposite of a vacation, doesn’t it?
But while it might seem like a lot of work, nothing deserves your attention more than your outdoor living spaces. Not only can proper landscaping save you money by reducing your need for central air conditioning by up to 50%, but good landscaping can help to increase your home’s curb appeal by as much as 14%.
And most importantly, beautiful landscape planting and design can provide an oasis of relaxation and enjoyment for you and your family all summer long.
Check out these simple ways to make your backyard your ultimate vacation location this summer:
Treat Your Backyard Like Any Other Room in the House
Unlike the living room, this room won’t need a television because of all of the beautiful nature going on around you! After a long day, revel in your comfortable lawn and patio furniture, and arrange it in a circle around a coffee table. This creates a perfect spot for relaxation, food sharing, conversations, and other great times with your guests.
Make it Yours
Do you like to cook with herbs? Then why not build a beautiful garden? Do you love flowers? Then take to Pinterest and look up landscaping ideas that will help make your backyard speak to both your personality and interests.
