Every outdoor space needs a focal point, somewhere your eye will instinctively go and marvel. From planting flowers to setting a pathway through the space or even building a vine archway, here are some ideas to help you make the most of your yard and bring your outdoor design to life.
Whether it’s a classic white picket fence or a more modern style, a fence not only adds privacy but can also be a distinctive feature. To add flair to the structure, plant large flowers such as hydrangeas that will grow up and around the fence.
Colorful annuals, flowerpots or boxwood hedges around garden beds will add interesting layers to your garden. Don’t be afraid to let your favorite flowers overflow, especially if they complement the colors of your home.
Add a wooden bench for enjoying afternoons in your garden, and play with the lighting for an irresistible draw for the eye.
If you are a traditionalist at heart, an archway covered in vines or climbing roses is the perfect fit for a romantic garden entrance.
A limestone path lined with wild daisies to soften the edges will give your garden playful definition. Try monochromatic plants and concrete pavers for a minimalist look.
