Our 10 ideas for landscaping your backyard:

- Woodland setting – A woodland setting can create an amazing environment for your backyard. It can be a wonderful addition to an outdoor seating area so you can relax while looking at your incredible scenery.
- Transition – Having stone paving and pebbles that lead to a grass lawn creates an incredible atmosphere while still having space to play sports or with your kids.
- Vegetable beds – Vegetable beds are a great addition to your backyard. They provide home grown vegetables and can provide a nice looking garden.
- Lush Lawn – The tall grass with stone pavement that crawls through it makes the garden look lush and green while still having the functionality of being able to walk through your garden.
- Cottage Garden – A cottage garden is great to have a backyard that feels cosy, yet is luscious and colourful. Because of this, there is great freedom in choosing the style that you want.
- Modern Highlands – A modern highlands style of landscaping in your backyard brings a fresh new look that isn’t centred around plants. It uses stone paving and pebbles to spruce up your backyard so it looks like the perfect modern garden.
