Designing A Garden That Can Be Enjoyed All Year Round
Is your garden designed to stand the test of time? Although we normally associate gardens with blooming flowers, you should be able to enjoy your backyard after the flowers are gone for the season. When you have a garden with a beautiful structure, you will have aspects that are visually appealing through the fall and winter. A properly landscaped backyard should rely on more than just flowers to be beautiful. Adding permanent structures and creative visuals like water features can really make a backyard stand out.
Switching the Focal Point
The permanent structures that can make up your garden are pergolas, patios, paths and gazebos. Instead of making flowers the focal point of your garden, consider making these permanent pieces more artistic.
A deck is a great example that is a staple in many Calgary backyards. A good quality deck made out of a beautiful cedar will be nice to look at all year around, and functional for a variety of spring and summer get togethers. At Ananda, we design and build custom decks to match your lifestyle and needs, specific to you, and o our decks we use a cedar deck stain that will maintain your high quality deck for a lifetime.
Adding decorative features along your garden path, such as statues or decorative fountains, will make your path feel lovely for an evening walk long after the flowers are gone. Decorative fountains and outdoor water features can be nice to look at, even when there’s no water running. Of course, custom outdoor firepits and fireplaces can be gorgeous (and functional) focal points throughout the colder seasons.
When it comes to greenery, evergreens and other year-around plants are a great addition to a garden that might otherwise be bare during this season. At Ananda, we help you pick the perfect trees to plant based on your backyard needs. The amount of sun, placement, size of yard, and many other factors become important with the types of greenery we add to your landscape plan. Designing a garden with every season in mind will allow you to enjoy all nature has to offer during the most beautiful times of year.
