Nearly all of us struggled to find enough space in our homes during the pandemic and lockdown. Even if our house seemed to have enough room before the tidal wave of changes, there was no way we could accommodate all the extra activities in our dwelling. Our abode was designed to be a comfortable place to live and raise a family. When we suddenly had to turn bedrooms into a child’s classroom and had to scramble for work-at-home office space, the four walls seemed far too confining.
The saving grace for many was that they could expand their living space outside, and take advantage of their backyards to add much-needed room for relaxing and entertaining. Now that the pandemic is over, homeowners continue to look for creative ways to transform their outdoor space into a beautiful place to enjoy time with friends and family. With a little bit of work and some good design ideas, you will be able to transform your backyard into a magical outdoor garden and entertainment space. In the evenings, and on the weekends, you’ll be able to enjoy the beauty and totally relax outdoors.
Create a Stunning Back Yard Garden
If you want to create a magical, captivating garden environment, be sure to include the right mix of flowering plants and ornamental shrubbery. The bright colors of the flowers, and their fragrance dancing on the sweet summer air, will have your guests sighing with delight when they visit.
Your local garden center can provide healthy, locally grown plants and will be able to give you advice and tips on planting and watering. Unlike the national chains, they will be very aware of what grows best in your area and flourishes during the blooming season. With their help, you’ll have the most beautiful garden in the neighborhood.
Add Flowering Plants in Decorative Pots on Your Deck or Patio
In addition to creating a beautiful backyard garden landscape, you will also want to add bursts of color and scent to the deck or patio where you entertain. As your family and guests relax in your comfortable outdoor seating area, their eyes will be drawn to the colorful pots and plants.
When you shop at a family-owned garden center, you’ll find a great selection of outdoor pots ranging from hanging baskets to flower pots that elevate your blossoming plants to eye level. You can even add glazed, decorative pottery to the mix for an extra touch of pizazz.
Get the Advice You Need from a Family Business That You Trust
Picking out the right plants is just part of the mission. If you work with a family greenhouse that’s been successful for years, you can be assured that they can also provide the advice and guidance that you need.
Not everyone is a natural gardener, but when you partner with the right local greenhouse, you’ll soon find that you are becoming a confident expert too. If any questions arise on plant care, you will feel peace of mind knowing you can turn to them for the right answer.
