Crafting a captivating landscape around your home can be an incredibly relaxing and therapeutic experience. Many homeowners find fulfillment in designing a backyard built for socializing or a garden full of gorgeous plants and hardscape elements. However, some homeowners encounter problems creating a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing landscape with all of the features they desire. Designing your outdoor living space around a specific theme can help you avoid overcrowding or overcomplicating your home’s exterior, and Lehnhoff’s Supply offers a wide range of stunning natural stone, landscape lighting, and other materials you’ll need to bring your vision to life.
Why You Should Design Your Outdoor Living Space Around a Theme
Without a guiding theme, your backyard oasis can look messy, tacky, or overcrowded. Materials, plants, and outdoor furniture that look great on their own can clash when put into the same space. Whether you’re creating a backyard from scratch or you’re simply looking to improve your current garden’s aesthetic, approaching the project with a strong sense of design and a clear idea about what you would like to achieve is invaluable.
Finding a Theme That Speaks to You
Finding a theme for your outdoor living space is a fun and exciting part of the design process. Look for pictures of outdoor spaces that speak to you, taking note of what you tend to like or dislike. Well-designed gardens can run the gamut from sleek, modern, and minimalist to overgrown, lush, and abundant. Perhaps you’ve seen an adorable English rose garden in your neighborhood, or maybe you really enjoy Japanese-inspired design. You may find that farmhouse or French countryside aesthetics really speak to you, or you might see more appeal in Spanish or Mediterranean influences. While regional styles are often useful starting points, they are by no means your only options for landscaping inspiration.
Use Colors, Textures, and Materials That Serve Your Design Goals
Once you’ve selected a theme and identified what design components are important to you, you can begin to select materials and make design choices that contribute to your vision. Working within a color palette can be useful, and narrowing down your preferences for stone colors, metal finishes, and textures allows you to keep every inch of your outdoor living space on-theme. No matter what motif you choose, visit Lehnhoff’s Supply online or in person to find the perfect pavers, gravel, and more for your new space!
