How to Create a Peaceful Backyard Space
Having your own little piece of paradise right in the comfort of your backyard sounds perfect for days when you need a break from it all! But, creating a truly relaxing oasis outdoors can be easier said than done.
It may seem overwhelming to figure out where to start, but don’t worry — the Ambrosio Landscape Solutions team has five great ideas that will help you turn your yard into an inviting and peaceful area that you’ll love spending time in:
1. Create a Meditation Space
Meditation has many physical and mental benefits, and having a dedicated space to practice can make all the difference. Consider designating an area in your yard for reflection, perhaps a peaceful garden or a shaded corner. Add comfortable seating, calming colors, and natural elements such as wood or stone to fully immerse yourself in nature while you meditate.
2. Install a Water Feature
The soothing sound of running water can help set a serene ambiance in your yard. Water features such as fountains, ponds, or waterfalls can be focal points in your landscape design. They not only add an element of relaxation but serve as a natural habitat for wildlife as well.
3. Add Cozy Lighting
Lighting sets the mood for any space, and your yard is no exception. Soft, warm lighting that is not harsh on the eyes can create a calming environment for evening relaxation. Consider adding twinkling string lights, lanterns, or installing subtle accent lighting that illuminates specific areas in your yard.
4. Incorporate a Fire Feature
Few things are as cozy and relaxing as sitting by a warm fire on a chilly evening. Fire features such as fire pits, fire bowls, and outdoor fireplaces offer a cozy ambiance while enhancing your outdoor living space’s aesthetic. As an added bonus, they make perfect spots to gather with friends and family for a night of s’mores and stories.
5. Create a Low-Maintenance Garden
While gardening can be therapeutic and relaxing, it can also be time-consuming and daunting. Consider opting for a low-maintenance garden with vibrant perennials that require little to no pruning or watering. Planting colorful shrubs and groundcovers such as hostas or ferns is another low-maintenance option that adds texture and visual interest to your yard.
