Divide Your Backyard Into Different Sections For Added Beauty And Ease

Are you planning to landscape the area around a new swimming pool, or are you working around an existing one? Either way, you can beautify that area of your yard and make it easy to care for, too, by following these steps.

Divide The Area Into Sections - Think of the different ways you'll be using your back yard.

Do You Have A Swimming Pool? -  One good idea is to separate the pool area from the rest of the back yard. One of the best things you can do to make your pool easy to care for is to remove any grass from the surrounding area. That will eliminate the problem of people tracking grass and dirt into the pool. Consider what you want as replacement for the grass.

One beautiful option is to have contractors install flagstone around the pool. Of course, color will make the area even lovelier. A good way to add it is to have hanging flowers and huge pots with small palm trees and other plants in them. Consider putting a decorative fence around the pool area for added beauty and to make the area safer.

A Grassy Knoll - Select a portion of the backyard for grass. If you already have grass in place, you're a step ahead of the game. If not, consider talking to somebody at your local extension service to learn what kind of grass thrives in your area. After the grass is established, use pavers that will lead to other areas of your backyard.

Do you want both flower beds and a vegetable garden? Separate these from each other and from the rest of the backyard with ornamental cement garden dividers.

The Eating Space - Extend the fun by establishing an area to use for an outdoor kitchen. If your back yard slopes, consider asking your paving contractor to install beautiful stairs leading to the eating area. A really pretty look would be to have concrete floors and to do faux painting on them.

Gifted artisans will make the concrete look like anything you want it to! Choose the look of tile, brick, or marble, or go with the look of a black and white checkered floor. The great part about having a concrete floor is that it's super easy to care for and it will last for so many years that even your great grandchildren can enjoy it.

A Bonus Spot - Ask your contractor to establish a concrete play area for your children or grandchildren. This would be a great place for roller skating and for fun activities using sidewalk chalk. Consider setting up weatherproof bins that will hold games, and set up a little table and chairs for snacking.
