Your home is your sanctuary. From your living room to your kitchen to your bedroom, you’ve made every part fit your needs and style. It screams, you. 

But what about your backyard living space? Have you neglected the place where you’ll most want to spend your summer months? 

During the Covid-19 Pandemic, the CDC recommended entertaining with outdoor living, and in all likelihood, that trend is here to stay. If you want your backyard to be the best hangout spot or your own private oasis, keep reading for backyard living space ideas.

Evergreen Shrubs

Evergreen shrubs help define the borders of your yard without building fencing or a patio. They add texture and natural beauty to your yard while also making it feel more like your own. The best thing about evergreen shrubs is that they last all year long. 

Find the Best View In Your Backyard Living Space

While arranging your yard furniture, keep in mind what you and your guests will be looking at. Try to avoid views of the road and get creative with the orientation. 

If you have a natural water feature, situate the chairs so that you can see that. Maybe you have a pool and want to maintain a clear view of that. Even a small bit of woods can become a beautiful view to gaze upon from your backyard.

Make sure that your view is the best that it can be with regular lawn care and landscaping

Choose a Color Scheme

Find a color scheme that you love and stick to it. You can find all kinds of places to include your colors on decks and patios, from floral arrangements to dishes, pillows, and painted walls. Even if you’re on a tight living space budget, coordinating the colors is an easy, inexpensive way to make your backyard look nicer.

If you’re having trouble coming up with a color scheme, you can choose some of your all-time favorite colors (that may have been too extreme to use inside your home), or you can look at this season’s color trend predictions for inspiration. 

Create a Patio

Whether you want a separation between the grassy expanse of your yard or have a small concrete backyard that you want to elevate, a patio can make a world of difference. 

Choose a wood or stone patio depending on your personal preference and work with an experienced outdoor patio builder to make sure that your irrigation is up to code. Soon you’ll have a beautiful area to treat as a living room or dining room right in your backyard.

Make Natural Borders

If you want privacy from neighbors but don’t want to stare at an ugly fence all day, you can cover your fence with vines or place shrubs and trees in front of it. This will create a secluded, natural-feeling space that’s all your own. 

A Vacation At Home

In no time at all, you can have a private, naturally beautiful backyard living space for entertaining and relaxing. Use plants, colors, and patios to their full potential, and fall in love with every part of your home.
