Have you planned your landscaping yet? Your yard is supposed to be a reflection of what’s going on inside your home. You want your home’s exterior to impress onlookers just like your home’s interior does whenever you have guests over. Here are ten landscaping designs that are sure to make your yard the envy of your neighborhood.

10 great landscaping ideas

1. Curvy Flower Beds

Hard, straight lines are out, and curves are in. Incorporate bright, curved-shaped flower beds throughout your yard for a natural look. 

2. Install a Fence

Fences are a practical addition to almost any yard. Not only will a fence distinguish your property lines, but it also gives you a chance to install a fence that adds to your overall aesthetic. Choose to install a fence that is unique or one that compliments your home.

3. Flower-Covered Pergola

Don’t like the look of a standard pergola? Add flowers to it! You can add flowers on top of and around the pergola to create a magical, shaded area in your yard. 

4. Offset Pavers

Use pavers to create a beautiful pathway to your backyard. Offset pavers will allow your yard to reveal itself interestingly while providing a safe and beautiful pathway. 

5. Plant Wall

Want to add a pop of color? Try a plant wall! There are multiple ways you can incorporate plants onto your wall. You can talk to a professional landscaper to see what’s the best way for your situation. 

6. Create a Pond

Ponds offer a type of serenity that most other landscaping fixtures cannot. Ponds are usually created in backyard landscapes, but they can also be placed in front yards. You can even create one near the front door for an unexpected greeting. 

7. Colorful Hanging Baskets 

Flowers don’t have to be limited to the ground. Add a pop of color in mid-air by incorporating colorful hanging baskets. You can even add window boxes to enhance your view of your backyard when inside the house. 

8. Add Lighting

Lighting isn’t just important for selfies. Lighting is also important for your yard. There is plenty of ways you can incorporate more lighting into your yard, such as: 

  • Tiki torches
  • String lights
  • Built-in lighting

9. Add a Place to Rest

Add some functionality to your backyard. A bench is a great addition for you and guests to sit and take in all that your backyard has to offer. 

10. Raised Garden Beds

One unique design to incorporate into your backyard is raised flower beds. These planter boxes, which can be created using anything from wood to steel, are one way to add layers to your landscaping design.
