How to turn your backyard into an oasis
Your home isn’t complete if you don't have an accompanying outdoor living area. Some people mistakenly assume that their backyards are for garbage bins, which would be such a waste of space. You can turn your backyard into one of the most inviting parts of your home if you are willing to bite the bullet and try a few things.
Are you ready to give your backyard the upgrade it craves? Do you want to turn it into the ultimate escape?
Below, we will discuss some essential tips on how to turn your backyard into an oasis.
Install a patio
This is one of the first steps towards bringing the indoors, outdoors. Depending on the size of your backyard and of course your budget, In Style Patios and Decks can discuss with you your best options and design a patio or pavilion that would benefit you and your property the most. We have so many options available – flat, flyover, bulkhead, gable, curved and even an opening sunroof option.
Install ambient outdoor blinds
These outdoor patio blinds allow you to turn your alfresco areas into an outdoor living space in an instant. Having a slim profile, and available in colours that suit your existing surrounds, ambient blinds create seamless indoor-outdoor living 365 days a year. They can protect against harsh winds, rain, sunlight, and other weather elements that may disturb you and your loved ones when you want to have a good time in your outdoor zone. In addition to protection and comfort, outdoor blinds offer flexibility and aesthetic appeal.
Timber decks are a specialty of In Style Patios and Decks and a must-have for any new outdoor extension. The QLD climate and home designs mean that a deck is a requirement for all homes and will add significant value to your house when/if you ever decide to sell. We use a wide variety of materials from Merbau and Composite decking boards through to Treated Pine and Merbau, or even roll formed steel and SHS Subfloors. This is another wonderful way to map out your outdoor relation spot. A well-built outdoor deck will serve as an excellent living area and relaxation spot for everyone. Your home will be everyone’s new favourite hosted party spot.
Depending on where you live, maintaining healthy grass can be an issue, especially during harsh times of the year – too much rain, not enough sun etc. The best way to address this problem once and for all is to lay quality artificial turf. It will look and feel amazing under your feet.
Flowers can help bring any zone to life! An outdoor living space would benefit with some flower power. Including some lively plants that bloom throughout the year. These will make the place feel and smell welcoming. It doesn't have to be a full garden, but you should try and fit flowers sporadically.
Fresh Coat of Paint
One of the best things to do to get that fresh feel and look is a new coat of paint. Always, try to match the colours of the house so it all looks intwined, and consider a neutral colour scheme. You can’t go wrong with cream, olive and champagne.
There are special pieces of furniture that are made for the outdoors. In turn, you need them to turn your backyard into the living area you and your household desire. Opt for quality wherever possible as you will notice the difference and reap the benefits for years.
An oasis without a water feature does not seem complete. You need to add some H2O to give your backyard the ultimate look, feel and sound. These beauties bring the vibrations of nature to your doorstep and they will also entice wildlife onto your land.
Add a fire pit
When it is cold, a fire pit can easily become one of the most important things in your outdoor living place. A professionally installed firepit done by a quality landscaper are perfect for establishing an al fresco lounge area – a place where you and your loved ones can really enjoy. You can even purchase a quality fit pit from an outdoor shop, such as Bunnings, who have such a huge selection.
Be willing to make a few changes to your backyard every now and then to keep in tune with changing seasons. This is necessary to ensure that it is always a comfortable setting all-year-round.
