With the beautiful weather of every new spring comes the opportunity to revive your landscape design. Maybe you’ve taken the winter to come up with some new creative ideas that you’d like to implement in your outdoor space, and you’re ready to get started. If you haven’t and you’re looking for inspiration, check out these landscape ideas for spring.
Consider the Function
Take this opportunity to make your outdoor space more functional for your family. Do you have kids that need a safe place to play or would you like to designate an area for a vegetable and herb garden? Would you like to relax a bit more under the moonlit sky with your spouse and friends? Take a look at your landscape in its current state and think about how it can better serve your needs. This will automatically give you direction for a great spring project.
If you want to get your feet wet first before completely diving into a complete landscape makeover, begin with a small project. Give yourself a starting point from which you can build the rest of your design. Start early on your day off and work continuously until you like the outcome. Even if it’s just planting new flowers setting up some new lawn furniture, it’ll be the first step toward creating the landscape of your dreams.
Choose a Focal Point
Does your landscape have a unique feature that you’d like to highlight as a focal point? If so, you can design the rest of your landscape around that feature, to highlight its distinctiveness. An example would be a large tree or water feature. If you’d like to add a focal point to your landscape, think of features that would be great conversation starters like a fire pit or your patio.
Sizing goes a long way in landscape design. Think about the various sizes, shapes, and colors of the various elements that you’ll include in your design and positioning in the best way that allows them each to shine. For example, plant taller plants in the back or against a building to help frame the overall look of the space.
