“Life is like a landscape. You live in the midst of it but can describe it only from the vantage point of distance.” - Charles Lindbergh
This was a simple and kind of forgotten backyard. There’s no need to say it needed to be brought to life, right? Even the grass and trees (which are usually what save a backyard that hasn’t been transformed yet) look lifeless and like they’re crying for attention. After some thoughtful considerations, it ended up like this…
The rock path ending in a revamped deck with some new furniture (that make a lovely statement with the bright yellow color) plus the concrete pattern floor creates a new backyard anyone would love to hang out in.
Though it has no nature around, this looks like a pretty standard backyard. It may have some space to sit back and relax, but without any landscaping to look at, what’s the point? That’s why they planned this whole new modern backyard:
Pretty cool, don’t you think? The warm lights, the grass addition on the side, and the new furniture make this house a true home. The only thing that would make me fall in love even more with this backyard would be some hanging, colorful plants.
You may look at this and not notice what’s wrong with it at a first glance, but there’s something there that somewhat bothers the eye and mind. Once you really pay attention, you can see the trouble: this backyard is cluttered! Not only that, it’s also a bit lifeless seeing how all the elements here are neutral-colored.
Doesn’t this feel a lot peaceful after the remodel? With a little blue paint on the siding, some warm-toned wood accents, and the removal of the unnecessary clutter, this backyard was completely transformed. Some extra seating and colorful cushions were added to make the space comfortable and welcoming.
Can you see the potential this backyard has? Even though at the moment it looks pretty messy, there are many ideas you could go with. Such as:
- Getting an actual pool
- Building a pergola
- Adding a tree (and DYing a bench around it)
A lot of potential! This is how it ended up:
These homeowners decided to extend the patio and make this cozy living space outdoors. The addition of a garden bed and some hanging flowers adds an even comfier look to the whole place!
This is proof that even the worst backyards can be saved with a little bit of imagination. Or, in this case, a lot of imagination! With a backyard like this, it’s really easy to feel overwhelmed even before getting started with your makeover project.
