Whether you’re looking for a new way to improve your backyard, or you simply want to spend more time outside, you have many options.

However, creating the ideal backyard oasis is all about combining functionality and aesthetics. Here are three things you need to create the perfect backyard oasis.

3 Essentials to Creating the Perfect Backyard Oasis

Create a Place to Relax

The first step to creating an awesome back yard oasis is creating a place where you can sit and relax. There are several different ways you can create this space, but one of the best is with a deck.

Decks are great for holding backyard BBQs, laying out under the stars, or simply enjoying a cup of coffee. What you need to decide on is the style of your deck, as well as the materials you want to use in construction. Though the most important element of your deck is its functionality, it should also integrate seamlessly into your overall aesthetic vision.

We recommend composite decking for those of you looking for something attractive and low-maintenance. Not only that, but depending on the finish of your composite deck, it can look like natural wood without having to deal with the standard failings of wood.

Integrate Privacy Into Your Design

No oasis is complete without a certain measure of privacy. Though neighbors are perfectly nice, it’s also nice to shut the rest of the world out when you’re trying to relax.

For privacy, you have a few options. Fences are great for limiting the outside world from being able to see into your yard. If you already have a fence, but you’re looking for something a little extra, a gazebo can offer more privacy.

Pergolas with drapes and vines also offer cover from prying eyes and the harsh rays of the sun. Once you have the privacy you need, it’s time to add accessories.

Accessories Complete Your Private Oasis

Now that you have a place to relax, and you’ve created a sense of privacy, it’s time to add the finishing touches to your yard.

Lighting can help to create atmosphere in your backyard. Depending on your aesthetic, you may choose torches, string lights, or even floodlights for your deck or gazebo.

We also recommend adding some plants to your oasis. Flowers that match the color palette of your oasis are a good option. You may also enjoy climbing vines or trailing flowers depending on your overall design.
