3 important questions to ask yourself before you start designing your backyard
Whether you are wanting to redesign your BACKYARD or merely making a few changes, there are 3 essential questions to ask yourself before you start designing your backyard.
1) Who will be using your BACKYARD?
You want to think about who will be using your backyard, and how will they be using it? Will children be using your backyard? Do you have pets? Will you be using your backyard for outdoor entertaining? Remember, you may be creating different spaces for different uses in your backyard, so you will want to have walkways that can move people from one area to another.
2) How will you maintain your BACKYARD?
Will you be using and maintaining your backyard yourself or hiring someone to maintain it for you. You will want to consider what your maintenance style and budget will be. Be as realistic as much as possible by asking yourself the following questions: How much time will you have to put into your maintaining your backyard? If you will not have the time, will you have the money to pay someone else to put in the time? Determining the answers to these questions will help to ensure the success of your landscape for years to come.
3) Create an all-weather, all-day space.
Are you looking to enjoy your backyard rain or shine, think about incorporating different shade variations: a fully covered dining space, a partially shaded living room, and an open-air fire pit. Carefully placed lights and the fire pit make the spot just as enjoyable at night.
