Has the time come for you to redesign your backyard or patio space? There are endless possibilities that are available to you. But, when you are making your design choices, remember the old phrase, “less is more.” You definitely don’t want to go overboard in with your renovation. Don’t forget to allow your space to speak for itself by installing simple accents and enhancements that will lead to noticeable results. The perfect placement of planters and greenery, the installation of a sleek spillway, and the presence of a little landscape and water lighting can transform your space into the perfect backyard oasis.
Planters and Greenery
A great place to start when deciding what to do is considering the installation of a few planters and some of your favorite flowers or greenery to accent the scene. There are a wide range of colors, styles, and designs of planters available. There is something for every type of outdoor setting. This type of installation is the perfect accent; it fits so naturally with an outdoor setting that it is nearly unnoticeable, yet, without it, your space can feel dull and lifeless with no explanation.
A more obvious accent that you can consider is a simple spillway in your patio space. Spillways produce a constant smooth sheet of water that gently flows into a basin below. They are a great way of adding an extra element of life and energy to your outdoor scene. With proper placement, your spillway will look as if it belongs in your patio space. It will contribute to a soothing atmosphere with its steady, soothing flowing sounds, but is calm enough to not be too overwhelming.
LED Light Accents
A great, and often overlooked, accent that you can utilize in your outdoor space is LED lighting. Light is such a simple thing that there are times when people don’t even give it a thought. But, with the right installation, some simple lighting choices can completely transform a scene. You can enhance your whole outdoor scene with illuminated walls, stairs, and pathways. You can even install lighting in your spillway for an even more stunning effect. There are many colors of lights, and even color changing options to help you get your scene just right.
Your patio space can be the perfect outdoor oasis, and you don’t have to make huge changes to accomplish this. With the installation of a few planters and greenery, a sleek spillway, and a few LED lighting accents, you can easily transform your scene. Make the simple steps to complete your scene!
