Categories: Backyard Landscaping, Landscape Design, Landscaping | June 23, 2017

With all of the cold weather that the Lower Mainland has had this year, it is hard to believe that summer is finally here. Now is the perfect time of year to start on your backyard landscaping for summer. At Vandenberg’s Landscape Design, we understand that choosing the right landscaping features for your backyard can be a challenge. That is why our team of landscaping professionals have chosen a few key landscape design options to highlight for you.

Landscaping for Patio Spaces

Backyard patio spaces have become the hub of activities geared towards entertaining and relaxing. A well-designed patio can add additional living space to your home, as well as increase its resale value. Since your patio will provide the foundation of your outdoor living space, it will need to be durable, well constructed, and attractive.

When it comes to designing your patio space, there are a variety of patio landscape designs and paving materials to choose from. If you are unsure about what size, shape, or style of patio will best suit your needs, we can help. The landscaping professionals at Vandenberg’s Landscape Design can help you custom design the perfect patio for your space, giving you the patio that you have always dreamed about.

Pools and Water Feature Landscaping

Adding a pond or a water feature to your backyard landscape design can add a sense of tranquility and character that you will not be able to get from any other landscape design feature. There are a wide variety of different water features that you can choose from, including ponds, water fountains, and waterfalls. Backyard water features are visually engaging, and they can add to your backyard’s overall ambiance by producing relaxing melodious sounds.

Ponds and water features do not have to be large to be beautiful. There are so many ways for you to create a small pond to fill an empty corner of your yard. If you are unsure about what type of water feature will best fit into your space, a professional landscaper will know exactly how to help.

Plants and Garden Landscaping

One of the best things about having a backyard is being able to have a garden space. Backyard gardens lend a certain element of structure and design to a space, without ever becoming overwhelming in size. Adding new elements to your garden is a fairly straightforward and easy task, with basic upgrades that can be accomplished over the course of a weekend. The addition of a simple birdbath, stepping stones, or even new flowers can be a great way to refresh the overall aesthetic of your backyard landscape design.

Landscaping with Fire Pits

Adding a fire pit to your backyard will add a sense of warmth, functionality, and beauty, while also increasing your home’s resale value. Having an outdoor fire pit will make your backyard the perfect place for your friends and family to hang out and cook food. Yet, depending on the type of fire pit you want to have installed in your backyard, it might not be the easiest thing to install. A professional landscaping company, such as Vandenberg’s Landscape Design, can help you install your new fire pit. Having your fire pit professionally installed means that you know your fire pit will be installed correctly the first time around.
