Exterior and Backyard Landscape Design Ideas

Redesigning your backyard and turning it into a family room or an area where you can entertain guests is a great way to transform the area.  If you hardly ever hang out in your backyard before, redesigning it would turn the space into an area where you can breathe in the fresh air, read a book, use your phone, work, do some outdoor dining, and many more. 

Landscaping your backyard will not just create a new extra living space, it will also significantly increase the value of your property. Whether you are looking to sell the place in the future or not, it is good to know that you can increase the amount of investment while getting a new space to spend some time in your home.

If you are hesitant because you don’t have any idea what to do with your yard, backyard, patio, lawn, or other outdoor space—here are some creative ideas that would definitely get your attention.

Remember that there are many factors to consider if you are looking to get your backyard landscaped, such as:

  • Amount of available space
  • Irrigation
  • Regular upkeep and maintenance
  • The type of plants you want
  • And of course, your budget

10 Design ideas for landscaping your backyard

Decks, residential services

Mountains Made out of Plants

We can create mountain-shaped plant designs by carving out circular or curved paths on the green grass. From there, we can place taller plants in the middle and surround the center with shorter flowers in a circle to create a mountainous look. This design is excellent for large spaces that need a little bit of definition. 

Patios, residential and commercial services

Backyard Wandering Paths

You can make a small backyard look a little bit larger by creating stone paths that lead wander around the area. We can use flat rocks for the pathway layout to give it a little bit of character, in addition to the patio and pergola that creates a separate space for hanging out. It is a great way to use your backyard if you want to do a little bit of meditative walking to clear your head or relieve stress.

Fire Pit

You know how it can get really cold in Calgary, Alberta during the cold seasons. If you still want to spend time with friends and family outside without freezing in the blistering cold—you can create a circle fire pit in an area of your backyard and surround the space with flowers and plants that add an ambient effect.

Pergolas, residential services

Colourful Concept

You can also add a touch of colour to your backyard by adding different flowers, plants, pillars, chairs and more. This design idea will make any backyard livelier, especially if you have green grass. You can add a fire pit with different coloured chairs to surround the fire with pebbles or bricks on the ground. Playing around with different colours can make any space improve and look brighter.

Simple Makeover

Even if you have a small backyard or patio, doing a simple makeover can improve its look and make it look cozy. For people who are not really into doing full-blown designs, and that is not a problem, because Sungreen Landscaping is here to help with any project, even if it is a simple makeover. For simple makeovers, you can choose low-maintenance plants that do not produce a bunch of weeds, especially if you are not a plant person.

Decks, residential services

Flower Waterfalls

Creating a waterfall of flowers looks good in most gardens, whether it is small or big. Our team can create some of the best flower waterfalls in ways that look stunning, depending on your back or front yard.

Patios, residential and commercial services

Garden Swing

Nothing beats having a place to sit in your backyard garden. But what makes a seat better? Well, a swing will definitely make any garden fun for kids and adults alike. Imagine a wooden swing where you can sit and hang out with a friend or loved one on a nice warm day—Sungreen landscaping Inc. can make that a reality.

Modern Design Patio

If you prefer a more modern design for your backyard instead of the traditional garden design that most houses have, we can create a modern patio style with a deck, beach chairs, some plants, a dining area, and if it fits the budget, you can also get a bathtub. With Sungreen, it is possible to create a personal spa for you and your family in the comfort of your home. 

Pergolas, residential services

Preserving a Tree

Some backyards have this one tree that you do not want to cut down because it is memorable or fruit-bearing. Well, you don’t really need to cut it down. Instead, you can incorporate the tree into your backyard landscape design by creating a circular plant, brick, or rock structure around it to preserve it forever!

Pergolas, residential services

Garden Shed

Whether you want a full-blown garden, a vegetable garden, herb garden, or fill the space with colourful flowers, it is a good idea to build a garden shed, especially if you have abundant space to add another structure. The shed can work as a storage compartment for all of your gardening essentials, but if it is big enough, people can also use the space for other activities like doing having wine with your friends, doing pottery, making an art workshop, writing, producing music, and a lot more. Women would definitely love having a garden shed because they can turn it into a she shed. 

There are so many more ideas when landscaping your backyard, and the possibilities are endless, especially with the help of Sungreen Landscaping Inc.

Here are some more ideas:

  • Adding a backyard stage
  • Create a tropical dining space
  • Create a maze
  • English style gardens
  • Herb gardens
  • Adding a pool
  • Relaxing and minimal
  • Adding stairs and water features
  • Create a Japanese-inspired Zen garden
  • Lush lawns with thick green grass
  • Adding a cottage
  • Adding a gazebo
  • Creating pillars of flowers to use as shade
  • Creating a calming area for drinking tea
