Before starting on your new landscape design, survey your area and make some notes; you cannot concretely consider certain landscape decorating ideas unless you identify what kind of climate you are living in, how much you are willing to spend and how much space you have to work with. Additionally, as you browse several landscape ideas and landscape pictures and make notes about the designs and landscapes that really jump out at you, keep in mind what level of ongoing maintenance is actually feasible.

If you love working with plants, a large rose or vegetable garden is the perfect use of land; if you live in a hot or dry area, consider drought-tolerant landscape ideas.

Think about what your family would use the most, as well as what would help boost your resell value in the long run.

What plants should I add to my landscape? When browsing landscape photos, think about curb appeal above all else; landscape designs are your chance to make a great first impression. A flower garden is a great option, but if ongoing care is a concern, you can simplify the process by opting for low-maintenance succulents, bushes or hedges instead.

What features should I have in my garden or backyard?

While landscapes are seen as a primarily aesthetic component, there are additions you can incorporate in your landscape design to make it as functional as possible. The garden can be designed for entertaining and playtime with seating, dining areas, play spaces and sunny relaxation spots.

For the ultimate party house, incorporate a pool and patio, or consider a deck with a fire pit, outdoor fireplace, barbecue and/or outdoor kitchen. If you're an active, sports-loving family, add a basketball or volleyball court, or set up a bocce ball or croquet area. And don't forget about furniture!
