When you begin to discover your landscape style, inspiration is critical, as with any creative endeavor. You have a plethora of different options with regards to features, materials, styling, layout, and more. Mixing and matching elements or features from various styles is also a great way to create your unique style. Think about proportions, such as how big an outdoor kitchen in your landscape could be while still having room for a pergola or spa.
Depending on your interests, you may find that your style leans toward a backyard resort. Often the highlights of this style are pools, spas, lounge chairs, and umbrellas to have fun in the sun without feeling the heat. You will find landscapes with this style are full of activity and fun for the whole family or professionals looking to relax after a hard week of work. Incorporate some of these elements if your style is all about creating the ideal backyard getaway.
Your style could also be reflected by numerous plants and the atmosphere of your landscape. A lot of plants, a comprehensive sprinkler system to keep the lawn lush, and elegant and well-maintained walkways are just a few features of this style. The significant part about this style is that all of the features can be easily maintained by a professional landscape company. You can maximize curb appeal or create a serene, peaceful atmosphere that is both low-maintenance and beautiful. If you want to have a peaceful but vibrant, easy-to-maintain landscape, you may find yourself leaning towards a nature lover’s style.
The outdoor kitchen has become a popular landscape choice in recent years. In addition to tried and true grills that are standard with outdoor kitchens, refrigerators, bars, dining areas, and even pizza ovens have all become more popular fixtures. Outdoor kitchens are great for making family dinners more entertaining and fun or for letting you show off your cooking skills to friends. If you consider yourself the chef of the family or the grill master during neighborhood barbecues, your landscape can reflect your lifestyle with a custom outdoor kitchen.
If you find yourself the life of the party, you might be attracted to a landscape style based around an entertainment hub. Lots of lounge seating areas, perhaps with a fire pit or a covered pergola, is one example. You can enhance the party atmosphere with sound systems, televisions, and some outdoor lighting, too. The benefit of incorporating these elements is that you create the perfect outdoor party environment, with enough seating and entertainment options.
