Creative Landscaping Ideas For Your Home

July 25th, 2011

As the old saying goes, your home is your castle. Which means what your home looks like on the outside is just as important as what it looks like on the inside. This is true, regardless of the size of the space you have to work with. Fortunately, there is no end to the landscaping possibilities for your home’s exterior.

Obviously, when we think of yards, we think of plants. It is best, when choosing plants to consider the environment in which you live. Just like dressing well, matching the plants to the rest of the total environment is one of the easiest ways to a well-tailored lawn. However, some plants are more universal than others. A weeping willow tree, for instance, can add an enigmatic spice to drier, sparser landscape, just as much as it can add a haunting air to a moister, flourishing landscape.

However, how one fashions their chosen plants can be just as important as the plants one chooses. For those that like the well-manicured lawn look, cleanly trimmed hedges and grasses are key. The best of such looks usually institutes harsher angles and symmetrical curves in order to achieve a tamed, orderly architecture. Though, for some of us, a wilder, chaotic look might be better suited. This, being the easier of the two, utilizes plants like wild flowers and prairie grasses without much trimming.

For the more industrious, stone architecture might be a worthwhile possibility. The simplest constructions are the configurations of bricks and stones. Paths and walkways can be laid with little effort, as well as building small walls. For those that are working with flat land, enclosures made of short, brick walls and filled with rich soil can be made and planted with flowers and bushes to give that varied effect.

For those that like to spend time in the outdoors, constructions like gazebos can be a great add. Make a gazebo a centerpiece in which you tailor the rest of your yard for and make the outside of you home a sanctuary those balmy evenings or bright spring days. Gazebos can, also, make for nice alternatives to indoor kitchens, just add a grill.

If you like art, it is hard to go wrong with the addition of a choice sculpture. Often, angels or animals from nature are chosen for premiere spots. Sculpture that is incorporated into fountains are, also, pretty universal. But, with anything, take care to keep such outdoor accoutrement down to a minimum so as not to leave your yard looking too crowded and busy.

Of course, there are some embellishments that go beyond sculpture. Wind chimes and ornate pottery are nice possibilities. Though, noisy additions, like wind chimes, might be best left to those that own large tracts of land so as not to disturb the neighbors.

Regardless of what you choose, the right landscape will be a welcome sight after a long day at work or a leisurely day at home. Thinking up new ways of using materials to create your favorite scene may, also, in time become a most rewarding hobby. All you have to do is imagine.
