After the disruption and in some cases, downright devastation that the worldwide coronavirus pandemic caused and is continuing to cause, because of the various social restrictions and worries surrounding being in large groups of strangers in pubs and clubs, more and more people are spending time at home.
Garden and backyard parties have become incredibly more frequent across the length and breadth of the United States and beyond and as a result, hardware and outside décor stores both on the high-street and online are experiencing a surge in sales.
If you and your family are wanting to host social gatherings and parties in the comfort and safety of your own home, then continue reading to learn of four fabulous ways to transform your backyard in spring 2022.
1. Brighten The Flower Beds
If you currently have one or more areas in and around the yard that were once designated flower beds, or else you still have the backbone of flower bedding potential, transforming and substantially overhauling each flower bed is one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways of transforming the area.
Choose bold colors such as reds, yellows and oranges to create a beautiful effect in each bed and if the room and space allows, offset each bed with a fledgling shrub or small tree for height, texture and added aesthetic impact.
2. Build A Gazebo
One of the most dramatic, effective and incredibly exciting and multi-functional changes you can make to your backyard and garden is to build a beautiful and aesthetically stunning gazebo. There is a myriad of incredible gazebos to choose from and even better, they are much more affordable than one may think.
Gazebos are incredibly low-maintenance, incredibly sturdy, weatherproof and durable and are the perfect way to spend time in the garden throughout the entirety of the year.
3. Tropical Plants
For a seriously impressive aesthetic impact, add a touch of the exotic by adding one or more tropical plants to your garden and backyard set-up.
Species of tropical plants that will thrive in nearly all types of gardens include, but are categorically in no way limited to:
- Palm Trees
- Elephant Ears
- Calla Lily
4. A Touch of Zen
One of the main advantages for people who are fortunate enough to have an outside space attached to their property is the calm, peace and tranquility afforded the ability to spend quality time either alone, or with loved ones, in the outside privacy of their own home.
A fantastic way to maximize the peace and quiet that can be obtained from one’s private outside space is to add a touch of Zen to the area to encourage meditation and reflection.
Water features and fountains are an amazing way to inject some Zen into your backyard, surrounded by sand and light-colored pebbles and sitting in a bed of green moss. If you have the room in your backyard, the addition of a small wooden bridge connecting two different areas will add beautiful texture and increase aesthetic impact.
