Spending your free time in your backyard with friends and family can make for some of the best memories of your life.
While most backyard landscape features can be focused on entertaining, it’s also important to create a place of solitude right outside your back door.
Let’s discuss some of the best ways to unwind at your property so you don’t feel the need to get away from it all – the chance to enjoy a mini-stay anytime, in a space that’s perfect for you.
Creating a relaxing outdoor retreat doesn’t mean simply adding a comfortable chair to a corner of your patio. As with any other landscape design, there must be a space dedicated to relaxation.
Dedicate a space for relaxation in the part of your backyard that makes you feel most relaxed. There will be a particular connection to this place, so definitely use your gut to tell you where it will be best.
This space should be away from the main patio, which can be a busy space.
A side garden is a perfect opportunity to create a little sanctuary complete with a privacy fence or living wall, a hammock or cushioned lounge chair, and a relaxing fountain. This will be especially welcome if you have teenage children.
