The kids are out of school, the weather is heating up — well, it’s getting hotter than it usually is — and you are likely preparing your backyard for a summer of fun in the sun. In today’s blog, we are offering up 5 tips to take your backyard to the next level to make it an overall more enjoyable space. Keep reading to learn what C&L Landscape can do to boost your backyard landscaping in Jacksonville, Florida.

Tip 1: Make It Dynamic

Look at your backyard. What do you see? Do you see a weather-beaten patio and grass that runs all the way to the fence, with nothing in between? Dynamic backyards with trees, flowers, boulders, water features, and pavers make for true landscaping, rather than simply a backyard. We can create beautiful gardens where you can grow your own food, plant palms and other trees that thrive in our specific climate or create some low-maintenance landscaping with minimal upkeep.

Tip 2: Make It A Hangout Space

Of course, what is the point of a beautiful backyard landscaping if no one wants to be out there? We can turn patios into living spaces with beautiful pergolas, expert brick pavers, fire pits, and more elements to create the perfect outdoor hangout space for you, your family, and your friends. We have over 30 years of experience and are the residential landscaping company you can trust to create your visions.

Tip 3: Make It Cool For The Summer

There’s no beating around the bush, here. Our area gets hot during the summer, and spending time outdoors on a Saturday afternoon in August doesn’t sound nearly as fun as being in an air-conditioned house. However, there are ways to make your backyard a little slice of paradise during the hot summers. Make sure there are plenty of shaded areas or build a backyard pool. At the very least, install a sprinkler system so the kids can run around without overheating.

Tip 4:  Take It From Day To Night

So, what happens to your nice summer-heat-beating backyard when the sun goes down? Don’t head inside just yet! C&L Landscaping can give you a backyard worthy of a warm Florida night with a custom backyard fire pit or even a full-size outdoor fireplace complete with a chimney to send the smoke up and away.

Tip 5: Go Beyond Just A Grill

Of course, having a grill in your backyard is a necessity for creating the perfect summer hangout spot, but why stop at just a grill? Why not bring your whole kitchen outside? We specialize in creating outdoor living spaces, including full outdoor kitchens with running water, plenty of counter space, and built-in propane grills so you don’t have to run between the kitchen and the backyard just to cook up some burgers.
