A Homeowners Guide to Designing Your Own Backyard Paradise

Having a beautiful, inviting, and supremely divine outdoor paradise in your backyard is like turning your home into a lovely vacation spot—one that you get to enjoy on a daily basis.

Creating the perfect backyard paradise is easy when you have the right team to help you. Here are some great ideas to help you start figuring out how to have your idyllic backyard oasis.

Install a Rockery

A rockery is a beautiful way to create an interesting landscape to your home. It’s also a great way to utilize our climate in the Puget Sound Area. Rockeries not only allow for a natural look and feel but also offer a wide range of style options. Rockery boulders come in many sizes (half-man to two-man), shapes (flat or round), and colors (white, grey, rose, and more!).

Adding a rockery can create a feel of calming and zen to your space, offering stress relief and a peaceful atmosphere welcoming to both family and guests. Fill the spaces between the stones with succulents, grasses, perennial flowers, or other preferred plants to finish the look.

Add a Water Feature

Perhaps you’d like to add a water feature, like a pond or even a pool, depending on the size and scope of your yard. We can design anything, big or small, simple to luxurious. As you’re dreaming your back yard design, remember to consider how much time you’re willing to devote to maintenance. Large ponds and pools regular routine care, usually twice per year at fall and spring seasons.

Install a Waterfall

Create an instant sense of tranquility with a beautiful waterfall. We’ve all seen the incredible waterfalls that Washington has to offer, especially in the springtime. But it’s not always realistic to go drive to those places, especially in the middle of a busy work week. Add this incredible water feature to your yard and experience the rippling sounds of rushing water at all times.

Love to fall asleep to the sound of water? Consider placing your water feature near to your bedroom windows to hear the sounds all night long.

Install an Outdoor Shower

An outdoor shower on your property can add a sense of romanticism to your life. Depending on how private your yard is, you may choose to leave the shower open or enclose the sides with walls or curtains. Whichever you choose, definitely leave the ceiling open so that you can enjoy the sunshine, stars, or even rain as all of the elements will set a different and beautiful scene.

Create a Cozy Lounge & Fire Pit

A fire pit in your yard is the perfect way to entertain guests — or just yourself. Along with the crackle and glow of the fire pit, they offer a charming centerpiece to the yard area that requires extremely little maintenance. Additionally, they can be used year round. While we tend to do most of our outdoor activities in the summertime, you can still use your fire pit in the winter to keep warm and cozy in the evenings.
