Research (or just browse through photos!)
Most often, you’ll have a pretty good idea about what you’re looking for in your own landscaping. However, doing some additional research, or just simply looking at other finished backyard projects can inspire you to take a completely different direction.
When looking into backyard landscaping ideas, you’re going to want to focus on what is most important to you. Do you entertain large crowds? Do you prefer a cozy alcove that only seats two? You’ll want to decide exactly what you want to achieve before planning your landscaping project.
Backyard Landscaping Ideas in Oakville, Ontario
Oakville is a beautiful city with inspiration all around us. We’ve personally been involved in many projects in Oakville, and they are all unique. From decks that fill ¾ of a smaller backyard to large pools with pool houses, water features, outdoor kitchens and even wood ovens!
Of course, technology has brought many changes and innovations to our industry, providing you, the customer, with a vast array of options to choose from. However, this can be overwhelming and is often a non-starter for a lot of people. So what to do?
Step Back and Plan It Out
We recommend taking a step back and jotting down some ideas on paper. You don’t need to draw elaborate plans, or even draw anything. A simple list is a great start, for example; “We’d like a fire bowl to sit by on cooler nights, a shed to store our tools in, and an outdoor kitchen because we love to cook outdoors and entertain.”
See how easy it is when you consider activities or specific products that you want to enjoy in your newly landscaped backyard?
The first question our trained consultants will ask you is, “How do you want to use your backyard?” Typically, you’ll already have a good idea of how you want to use your backyard.
However, if you really don’t have any ideas, don’t worry! Sometimes you just can’t decide, or perhaps you just can’t visualize your new backyard. No problem, we’ll suggest what will work best for your backyard project. You would be amazed at how many times we hear; “I didn’t even think we could do that in our backyard!”
