With little careful planning, you can turn your backyard into a relaxing oasis, a family entertainment center, or even a complete, open-air home. Backyard decorating doesn't have to be expensive. There are plenty of simple backyard design tips that can help you create the perfect outdoor area, even on a limited budget.
The accessories and lighting you use to decorate your backyard living space will set the mood and atmosphere for this part of your home, just like inside. Citronella candles are great bug repellents and add a subtle glow to your backyard retreat. Colorful accents, like pillows, placemats, and bright chair cushions, can make your outdoor areas very inviting. Consider festive vases full of your favorite flowers for table décor and hang wind chimes for a melodic atmosphere.
Decor items such as angels, a small waterfall, water bell chimes, gentle tone wind chimes, moon flowers, and subtle lighting can be combined to create a tranquil, meditative back yard atmosphere. A statue of an angel adds reverence to a garden area. Stepping stones with inspiring quotes are an ideal accessory for a tranquil garden design. The peaceful burbling of a small waterfall calms the environment. Wind chimes with their gentle tinkling in the breeze can really create a space ideal for meditation and relaxation.
Bird baths are another great way to bring birds into your backyard. Birds enjoy fresh water and keeping themselves clean and a bird bath will draw a good number of birds in as well, be sure to keep the bath clean and the water fresh.
A backyard can be transformed into a vacation-like resort with the proper selection of decorations. It is easy to create a relaxing atmosphere similar to a day at the beach or lake. Adding outdoor furniture to the yard or patio is an excellent place to begin a transformation. After finding the ideal furniture, the accessories complete the transformation. Solar lights and yard art such as gazing balls and metal sculptures can be added. Walkways can be created using pebbles, stepping stones or various other materials. Bird houses, bird feeders, water gardens, and wind chimes help create a more nature oriented outdoor escape. Creating an outdoor dining area or picnic area increases the opportunity for entertaining family and friends in the backyard.
Of course, there needs to be some type of seating in the garden. Once such a beautiful garden space has been created, it should be enjoyed. A pathway lined with solar lights could be designed to lead directly to a bench, an outdoor swing, or a couple of chairs arrangement near or in the center of the garden. A solar spotlight could be used to illuminate a uniquely shaped plant or shrub at night.
