5 Changes that Will Easily Boost Your Outdoor Space

  • Written by Chloe Taylor

If you’re lucky enough to have a yard, chances are that you’ll want to spend as much time as possible outdoors. However, if your yard is not particularly well-maintained or if it’s simply lacking some oomph you probably won’t feel as comfortable spending time in it like you otherwise would.

But if you do feel like your outdoor space is lacking in any aspect, you should certainly do something about it, instead of simply dealing with the fact. On the other hand, if you feel like you don’t know what exactly is missing in your outdoor space or you’re not quite sure what you want to create in it, keep on reading. Here are five easy changes you can make to your outdoor space and bring the style and design of it to a whole new level.

Do something about your patio

If you have a wooden deck or a patio in your outdoor area, you should try to make it as comfortable and inviting as possible. However, if you don’t have a similar structure, you can easily create it with some interesting pavers. Simply choose concrete pavers in the style and design that most appeals to you and lay them on the ground so that they form a designated patio area. Once that is done, invest in some quality outdoor furniture and create a comfortable outdoor seating area where you can spend time lounging around and relaxing with your friends and family.

Create a layered look with different planters

By layering planters of different sizes, heights and shapes throughout your outdoor area and, of course, filling them with different plants you can easily add some visual texture to your outdoor space. Furthermore, by organizing them the right way, you can even section off your yard and create different zones in it without actually having to do any construction. Not only will different planters fit right in with the overall style of your yard but you can also choose to move them around and alter the zones whenever you feel like it. When choosing plants, aside from the ones that are native to the area you live in, you can also go with different shrubs and dwarf pines.

Add a luxurious statement piece

Just like in all the other rooms in your home, you want to add a statement piece to your yard as well. In countries, such as Australia, where there are a lot of warm days throughout the year, people usually opt for some kind of a water feature. One of the most popular solutions is adding a stunning outdoor spa in Sydney, as Aussies really seem to enjoy being able to relax in a body of water without actually having to hit the beach. However, if you live in an area where the climate is such that it wouldn’t make much sense adding a similar feature, you can simply go for a lush water fountain or a whimsical birdbath.

Boost the functionality of your outdoor space

For many, the goal is not only to create a beautiful outdoor space but to actually be able to make some use of it. If you like practicing mindfulness you can choose to create a serene little meditation nook in your yard, where you will be able to relax and unwind while practicing some self-care. Alternatively, you can choose to put together a designated grilling area where you and your family can enjoy preparing some delicious meals. Finally, if you have small children, creating a sandbox in your yard will be their dream come true. The best part is that you can easily DIY and of these features and include everyone in the project.

Light up your yard

Finally, every area can greatly benefit from some well-placed lighting, both design and functionality-wise. Aside from various solar lamps you can choose in any size and scatter throughout your outdoor area, you can also invest in outdoor LED lights for your patio. Another interesting idea is to invest in outdoor LED fairy lights and hang them on your fence or trees if you have any in your outdoor space. This will create a whimsical and somewhat mysterious vibe everyone will greatly appreciate once the sun goes down.

These were just some of the ideas that could potentially turn any old garden into a beautiful outdoor area. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you should adjust your outdoor space to cater to your needs. Only then will you be able to truly and fully enjoy everything it has to offer.
