Patio is an outdoor space adjoins to your backyard or residence. It can be used for dining, gathering or just a seating area for relaxation. An excellent patio landscaping is a fabulous way to add sanctuary ambiance to your home.
Patio landscaping is not only allowing you to express your personal style but will increased the value of your property. You can hire a professional landscaping designer to create the outdoor space for you, but I would suggest that you pick up some tips from this article and check out some Pinterest popular images that will inspire your creativity.
Let us start off with some ideas of Plants and Flowers. They are the focal point when creating any type of landscaping. Strategically place the colorful plants and flowers around the furniture with add on like fountains, trellises, statues, birdbaths, or an artificial lake. This will change the living portrait of your home.
Adding shrubs and floor covering plants at the edge of your patio will create a warm and welcoming feeling as well. Potted plants are one of the options and low maintenance as you can change it up according to the season and occasions making sure there is always something blooming on your patio.
Lighting is very important in the patio area. Depending on the theme of your patio, you can find variety of style and design in the local store.
Speaking about the theme of your patio, you need to select a patio landscaping design, color and material that are in harmony and compliment to your home. Some of the popular ones are Mediterranean, Victorian, Spanish, Latin and Andalucia hanging garden landscaping.
Latin style landscaping is probably one of my favorites being so simple to create in the least amount of time. All you need is the Spanish flowerpot holders specifically designed to hold pots on the wall and trellis. It can be arranged in straight line or zigzag pattern. You can even set it up like a trailing cascading flowers like ivy, geraniums, pelargoniums and fuchsias to cover up unpleasant looking wiring and piping. As for the ground, I like to use terracotta urns to plant exotic plants for an example banana, bamboo or fern.
Swimming pools is the ultimate addition to the patio landscaping besides a grand water fountain. We all know that an in-ground pool will raise up the value of your property. If you are favoring an above-ground pool, you can custom made a wrap-around deck around the pool. No matter how you look at it, a swimming pool is like a unique backyard face lift not mentioning the appealing sensation overlooking the gleaming striking water from the patio.
The other option is creating a water garden feature like a pond. It is very soothing and pleasing to both the eyes and the ears listening to the cascading water flowing and looking at the fish and turtle while enjoying the surrounding plants and flowers. But, this is a big project that take time, patient and planning. It comes in various designs, sizes, shapes, undersized open pool or a high dollar pond equipped with waterfalls, fountains, shrubs and wildlife.
