    Backyard Landscaping Tips

    Landscaping Tips | December 14, 2016

    With all of the snow and cold weather that the Lower Mainland and Greater Vancouver area has been receiving as of late, it may seem farfetched to begin planning next year’s big backyard landscaping project; however, as a full-service landscaping company with over 10 years of industry experience, Jovak Landscape & Design believes it is best to plan all landscaping projects well in advance. In case you are in the midst of outlining next Spring’s backyard project, here are three practical backyard landscaping ideas.

    Install a backyard water feature

    A backyard water feature is one of the most aesthetically pleasing backyard landscaping ideas that you can put to use. From ponds to water fountains, there is a variety of different water features that will help add tranquility and character to all elements of a backyard. Not only are backyard water features visually engaging, they produce soft, relaxing sounds that add to the backyard’s ambience. Learn more about how to spruce up your backyard with a water feature by contacting Jovak today.

    Upgrade your backyard’s garden

    One of the benefits in having a backyard garden is that the structure and design are never finalized. Adding new elements to a backyard garden is a fairly straightforward process. Basic upgrades can be accomplished over a long weekend or two. The addition of a simple bird bath and new flowers can go along way in refreshing the overall character of a backyard garden.

    Add a backyard fire pit or outdoor fireplace

    The addition of a fire pit area to a backyard serves several different purposes. It helps add warmth, functionality and beauty to any backyard, while also increasing the home’s resale value. An outdoor fireplace or backyard fire pit will keep your friends and family warm on cooler Spring and Summer nights. Backyard fire pits can also be used to cook food on such as hotdogs, marshmallows and kabobs. If your considering the installation of a backyard fire pit or outdoor fireplace, the team at Jovak Landscaping & Design can help.
