    1. Utilizing Pavers

    A great way to create a visual impact in your garden is to utilize a combination of pavers and ground cover. If you have any unused ground space that you would like to cover, try using recycled or broken pavers in a mosaic pattern of your choice. Once you have a pattern established, consider planting moss or creeping sedum in the cracks for a bit of contrast. The combination of these two materials can completely change the look and feel of a space without the need for spending a bunch of money.

    2. Adding Planters

    In most cases, you can use old items that you have lying around the house to create some interesting planters throughout your yard. Some great items that can be used as planters are wine barrels or crates, tires, or old pallets. Once you have created your new planters, try clustering planters of different heights to add some more depth and dimension to your yard, while also creating a visual focal point that will impress your guests.

    3. Planting Perennials

    Perennials are ideal for any type of landscape design because they return year after year. Try choosing between one of two different design approaches: a one colour floral garden or a combination of colourful perennials. Some of the perennials that you can choose to use in your Coquitlam garden include:

    • Allium
    • Astilbe
    • Baptisia
    • Buddleia
    • Coneflower
    • Kangaroo Paw
    • Sage
    • Veronica

    4. Planting Ornamental Grasses

    An easy and inexpensive way to add texture and colour to your landscape design is to use a combination of ornamental grasses. These types of plants can be a low-maintenance addition that will help your landscaping look high-design and expensive. Some ornamental grasses worth considering are:

    • Blue Oatgrass
    • Feather Reedgrass
    • Flax
    • Fountaingrass
    • Little Bluestem
    • Zoysia

    5. Utilizing Gravel

    Gravel is a low-maintenance, durable, and relatively inexpensive landscape design element that can be used in several spots throughout the yard. Try using gravel where plants do not thrive, such as areas with heavy foot traffic, drainage problems, or other areas where it will lend a more modern look.
