5 Ways to Create a Peaceful Backyard

Can you step into your backyard and find solace and peace from the outside world? Does your landscaping produce feelings of peace, comfort, relaxation and the feeling that you've gotten away to a special paradise? If your yard doesn't bring these feelings to you, then it's time to get it updated! There are many benefits to spending time outside, and one of the main ways you'll enjoy being outside is by having a place to enjoy it! Here are five ways we can help you create a peaceful backyard!

Creating a Space

If you don't have a space already created, you won't use it. This is almost a law of nature, and since we like to obey the law, we're very supportive of creating a space that you can enjoy! Think about your lifestyle, and what you enjoy doing. This will help you choose what you want to focus on in your backyard paradise. Do you entertain a lot of friends and need a place where you can all gather and enjoy some meat grilled outside, or hang out around a warm firepit? When imagining your perfect outdoor space do you think of a place where your pet can freely run around while you kick back in a hammock reading a book and listening to nature? This will be just what we need to create a custom landscape at the Lake of the Ozarks just for you!

Fill Your Space With the Right Stuff

When creating a backyard paradise, it's important to fill your space with just the right plants. If you would like to create a place where you can listen to the birds sing and watch butterflies flit through your yard, than we'll know to incorporate many beautiful blooms, flowers filled with nectar, and even trees where birds can find shelter. If you have severe allergies, we'll know to cut down on the large clusters of decorative grass, and find plants that don't pollenate as much. If you hate mowing your lawn, don't worry, we can still plant grass, you'll just need to hire the best lawn maintenance company at the Lake of the Ozarks to keep the lawn trimmed!

Just Add Water

Have you ever noticed that the sound of falling water can instantly relax you and bring you to a state of peace that you didn't notice before? Water has a way of doing that, which is why you'll find that many peaceful locations you enjoy feature water in some way. At Paradise Landscaping we can create a water feature that will not only look beautiful, but also match your lifestlye. If you want a very low-key, maintenance free water feature, we can install something that matches what your needs are, but still keeps the upkeep easy. If you want a pond that you can keep fish in, we can create a beautiful area with waterfalls, ponds and sitting areas so you can enjoy the fullness of this space.

Increase Privacy

Increasing the privacy in your yard can take the peacefullness to a whole new level. If you are constantly staring and the highway behind your home, or the neighbors who don't mow their lawn, or even just the neighbors while they're having a grill out - it can decrease your sense of peace. When you have a spot that feels secluded, private and serene, you'll be more apt to get out and use it.

Use Natural Elements

The use of natural stones, rock, wood, and plants can increase the peaceful feeling of your landscape. The more of nature that you incorporate into your designs, the more peaceful and serene your space will become. If you don't know what you want to use, or even how to start, we can help! Our designer, Rick Harris, knows just what to incorporate to create a place that you'll love.

BONUS: Hire a Maintenance Crew to Maintain This Newly Found Paradise

If you want to know our biggest secret to increasing the feeling of peace in your backyard, we suggest hiring someone to do all of the maintenance. There's nothing like coming home to a yard that is freshly cut, without having to do any of the work! Hire the best landscapers at the Lake of the Ozarks, and then let US take care of the maintenance for you. It's going to be the best arrangement you've ever done.
