A few simple landscape architecture additions can dramatically change the appearance of your home. At TM Design, I love creating beautiful spaces where families can spend time together and entertain guests. In order to help you gain inspiration for your next home improvement project, I’ve put together 5 landscape architecture ideas that will make your home the envy of the neighborhood.
1. Build a fire pit, the perfect place to socialize
There is nothing more relaxing and rewarding than socializing around a fire in your own backyard. Fire pits bring friends and family together and they add special character to your home. Beautiful stone pits are simple to design and build, they remain intact for decades with little upkeep, and they are usable during every season.
2. Outdoor lighting: beautiful and functional
Outdoor lighting can spruce up any space. You can add accent lighting to the entrances of your home, string lights around your deck or patio, or install in-ground lights that illuminate walkways. Outdoor lighting can showcase your property’s strong points and additional light also acts as a deterrent to criminals.
3. Set your property apart with a custom water feature
Nothing in nature or on residential property is more beautiful than a calm stream or pond. Water features can be designed to fit any sized property. I suggest integrating beautiful stonework, fountains, plants, and outdoor seating to make your pond one-of-a-kind. Once it’s completed you can even add a few of your favorite fish!
4. Add a deck or patio to your home and enjoy the great outdoors
Patios and decks provide an endless list of benefits. In addition to being beautiful outdoor living spaces, they add significant value to your home when professionally designed and built. Just open your door to a perfect place for hosting family and friends, dining outdoors, or simply sitting back and working on your tan.
5. Find Zen in your very own garden
Gardening is a wonderful hobby; you’ll save money by growing your own fruits and vegetables, beautify your property with new plant life, and gain a sense of satisfaction from working the land.
