How To Spruce Up A Boring Backyard


When it comes to backyard landscaping, it can feel like you don’t have a lot of options, especially if you have a relatively plain backyard, to begin with. For example, if you step out of your back door and are met with a flat, square plot of grass that extends to a fence, you might not be able to envision transforming that space into something spectacular. In today’s blog, we’re going to offer up some ways your Jacksonville landscaping company can help spruce up your yard (and not with spruces, either — at least not in Florida)!

5 Easy Backyard Upgrades

Mix Foliage Textures

Perhaps one of the best ways to upgrade your yard is to add more textures simply. Grass can get a little boring, so rather than have the grass extend to your fence, why not line the fence with hearty greenery that grows well in our climate? Maybe a nice palm, an ornamental grass, or some aloe?

Utilize Stone, Wood, and Metal

Whether you create a paver stone patio or raised wooden garden beds, adding some wood, stone, or metal elements is sure to make your backyard more aesthetic. You can put out a nice metal fire pit and some patio furniture, or, as your landscapers, we can install beautiful stone walkways, wood pergolas, and more.

Add Some Color

If you want to add even more flair to your yard, we can install some hearty, low-maintenance flowering plants during landscape installation. Lilies, zinnias, lavender, daisies, sage, and peas all do well in our climate. Not only might this attract some fun insects or colorful birds to your yard, but it also makes it look a lot more exciting.

Break It Up

Sometimes the best thing you can do for your yard is to divide it into sections. This will draw the eye to each section and make the space feel bigger. It will also show people what they should be doing in the backyard. For example, if you have just a big patch of grass, the yard might look more like a soccer field. However, if you break it up into a clear stone patio or wood deck with a green yard, guests will be drawn to hang out on the patio because, well, that’s what patios are for.

Install Permanent Structures

An exciting backyard usually has a few permanent structures. We touched on this earlier with a nice patio or deck. Still, we can also build you a functional and beautiful retaining wall, a full outdoor kitchen, a custom wood pergola, a patio fireplace, or whatever else you think would make your backyard feel like home.
