Don’t Over Look It!
Landscaping your back yard is a common thought. However, landscaping decks is something that is often hard to do because at times the deck was already there when you bought the house. You may have chosen a different design had the choice been yours to make.
Make sure your house and deck compliment each other. If you need to repaint, then repaint your deck. It does not have to be the exact same color but you want it to match at least. Then, once the deck itself looks presentable, then consider landscaping it. Landscape the house and deck together. Consider them all one unit. If you do, it will be easier to landscape.
When landscaping decks, it is important to try and tie the house and the yard together somehow so it looks like one uniform residence. It does not make sense to have a high tech house and have a weedy back yard. Your deck is your transition point from the indoors to the outdoors. Make sure you feel as welcome on your deck as you do in both your backyard and in your home. Well placed plants on your deck can nicely tie your interior and exterior into a whole unit. After all, your yard is a part of your home, isn’t it?
Greens- A liked choice for decks
Next, you should find some kinds of flowers and pots that are going to work well on your deck and with your house. Be sure that everything coordinates well and that your flowers are ones that you can easily take care of. You should be sure that you place them where they aren’t going to be hazardous to you when you and your family enjoy the deck. Remember that all in all, landscaping decks fit with your yard and suits your outdoor lifestyle; whether that includes landscape painting or BBQ parties.
Once you have taken care of the cosmetic aspects of your home and deck, and planted or moved potted plants into place there is only one thing left. Enjoy.
