1. Add a see-through fence 

Believe it or not, placing a fence around your yard can have numerous benefits such as:

  • Adding to the aesthetic quality
  • Keeping your pets on your property
  • Providing a place to grow certain types of plants

Although some people may see fences as impersonal, a see-through fence can give you all the same benefits that any other fence could without making your neighbors feel like you are barring them from your property.

2. Use portable gardens 

Some areas can have more fluctuating weather patterns than others, making it difficult to maintain an outside garden. However, this garden design makes it easy to care for plants in multiple types of climates. Portable gardening, like container gardening, is also a great way to have more control over your plants when there are difficult weather patterns.

Great for small plants or flowers, raised beds are nothing but good for your garden design. One of the biggest benefits is that they provide great drainage, so you don’t have to worry about the rain destroying your hard work. Also, if you have pets, raised and enclosed beds can help protect your precious flowers when your dog gets to digging!

Using backyard waterfalls or ponds is a great start to creating a mini oasis at your own home. Imagine, relaxing on an Adirondack chair while listening to the sound of trickling water from your pond. Taking it a step further, you can even add some pizzazz by adding a water fountain to your pond!
