Is the backyard of your home your happy place?
Like many others, the backyard is where you go to kick back, relax and spend time with loved ones. To really kick it up a notch, why not give your backyard the well-deserved makeover you’ve always wanted? New year, new backyard look, as they always say. In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at some of the backyard trends that are making a splash in 2019!
Creating a Backyard That You’ll Love
Above all, what matters the most is that you and your family have a backyard that you love.
- Meet all of your needs
- Be safe and functional
- Be budget friendly
- Bring happiness and joy
Before you get started, take some time to sit down and really think about what you want from your backyard. If that aligns with the following trends, which we predict it absolutely will, then the experts at All Florida Pool & Spa Center can help you bring it to life! From backyard products like BBQs, hot tubs and accessories, to pool remodeling, resurfacing, decking, and more, we offer a wide selection of products and services that can help bring any backyard back to life.
2019 Backyard Trends
If you’re looking to take your backyard to the next level of luxury, these trends might be just what you’re looking for!
Privacy & Seclusion
Even if you have a wonderful relationship with your next-door neighbours, everyone needs a break from time to time. Create a backyard space geared toward privacy and seclusion by raising the height of your fence, introducing privacy screens, or planting tall and full trees and/or bushes. Especially if you have a swimming pool or hot tub in your backyard, privacy is key.
Nobody likes a half-finished project. When a backyard project or installation is left unfinished, not only will it look messy, but it can also pose a safety hazard as well. That’s why we’re extremely happy about this backyard trend.
If you have a pool or hot tub, why not consider having them built directly into your patio or deck area? From there, a built-in fire pit or flower gardens can really help complete the look, while adding character and style, too.
Unique Floral Arrangements
What better way to make a statement in your backyard, than with the flowers? Planted into a flower bed or placed strategically around your outdoor living space in pots, flowers present a great opportunity to play with color and variation.
Try including a variety of the following combinations to add flare and character to your backyard:
- Tulips, Muscari & Lavender
- Dahlias & Alium
- Heaths & Wood Anemones
- Gerber Daisy’s & Tulips
- Ferns, Hostas & Agapanthus
- Zinnias, Sweet Alyssum & Gazanias
- Hemerocallis, Hosta & Tiger Lilies
Rock gardens are another unique way to add color and variation to your backyard. This could include a variety of rocks, gravel, greenery, and succulents. To really take your rock garden up a notch, why not add a water feature, such as a waterfall or fountain?
When it comes to your backyard space, don’t skimp out on quality to save a few bucks here and there. In the long run, these cheaper additions tend to not last as long, meaning you’ll have to replace them sooner than if you opted for the higher-quality alternative. Not only is this a waste of money, but it can also pose a safety concern.
Backyard additions you should never skimp on quality with include a swimming pool, hot tub, BBQ, gazebo, landscaping, deck/patio installation, and lighting.
It’s hard enough to make spare time to do the things we enjoy, never mind spending that time on tending to the backyard. To make things a little easier on yourself, there are a few backyard additions you can make. For instance, installing an automated irrigation system. This system will water your plants and grass for you on a timer and schedule, so you don’t have to take precious time out of your day.
Other additions to help you save time and create a lower maintenance backyard include:
- High-quality stone
- Mulch beds
- Strong foundation
- Artificial grass
- Plant perennials
- High-quality BBQ
Investing in higher-quality furnishings and fixtures reduces the amount of work you’ll have to put in down the road fixing or replacing them.
Al Fresco Backyard Dining
What better way to spend time with the family, than enjoying the Florida sunshine during a meal? Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks, an outdoor cooking and dining area can revolutionize the way you spend time with family.
Start with a deck or patio area for your outdoor patio set and accessorize from there. You may want to install a gazebo to provide protection from the elements, place your BBQ nearby for ease of transporting food, or add accessories to make the space truly yours.
