Stunning Side Yard Landscaping Ideas
The long and thin side yard running between two houses might look like a waste of space. With this space, you cannot find a place for growing plants or conducting any recreational activities. But there are a wealth of landscaping ideas you can use to elevate the appearance of your side yard. You can convert your side yard into a functional, pretty, or small garden with these landscaping ideas.
Pathways or Walkways
Would you cut through a specific area if you want to push a wheelbarrow from your front yard to the backyard? One ideal way of adding some vibrancy and color to your side yard is by paving it. Paving your side yard help enhance its looks and prevents rainwater from sitting against your property. Equipping your home with an available sidewalk enhances your entire property’s look, its general value and increases functionality. Furthermore, it will give you a place to add some flower pots, additional seating, and other things.
Build a Flower Garden
Most side yards do not get enough sunlight. However, if your yard happens to experience sun rays at least eight hours a day, you can use it to grow herbs, fruits, and vegetables. Add plenty of flowers in different shapes, sizes, and colors to augment the look of your home. You can also add potted flowers to give your yard a charming look. And if you love nature, you can add some flowers and bushes that attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
Convert your Yard into a Dog Run
Are you looking for a perfect place for your dog? Converting your side yard into a dog run can be an ideal decision. Unfortunately, dogs and other pets can wreak your backyard. Having a selected area where they can pee, play, and even sleep outdoors is an excellent option.
Convert your Side Yard into a Relaxation Spot
Turn your side yard into an inviting oasis, where you can relax during your free time. You can equip it with a seat or water feature like a pond to enhance its appearance. If you love engaging in exercises, you can convert your side yard into a playground by adding artificial grass. Add flowers and plants to create a conducive environment for yoga and other aerobics.
Grow a Ground Cover
A path edged with ground cover is an excellent choice for a side yard as it enhances your home’s appearance and value. In addition, it requires low maintenance than ordinary lawn patches, and it is more memorable than concrete walkways. However, when investing in ground cover, always look for one that can withstand foot traffic and mature compactly to block weeds.
