4 Hardscape Ideas to Beautify Your Backyard , Grant, Nebraska

No matter the size of your backyard, the right hardscape elements can transform any space into an oasis for relaxing, spending quality time with friends and family, and enjoying nature. These elements typically require little maintenance while enhancing a property’s beauty year-round. Review the following hardscape ideas to inspire your new backyard design and add style and functionality to your property.

What Hardscape Designs Will Upgrade the Look of Your Property?

1. Side Patio

Turn a side yard into a comfortable patio area, perfect for reading and relaxing in the sunshine. If you need to make the space more private, consider lattices with hanging vines.

Tall shrubbery also provides privacy and works well with hardscaping elements such as pergolas. A pergola would also allow you to attach a couch swing. Enhance your comfort and decorate the stone patio pavers with a colorful outdoor rug or wicker couches and chairs with waterproof cushions.

2. Tiered Retaining Wall

Consider planting a wide variety of blooms and shrubbery for a diverse result. You could also go with a theme, such as desert plants, native wildflowers, non-invasive vining plants, or ornamental grasses, to create a specific aesthetic.  

3. Outdoor Fireplace

Make a fire pit the focal point of your hardscape design to enhance your entertaining space. Surround it with a seating wall and brick pavers.    You could also include low benches for a classic campfire vibe. For a more modern feel, consider a sizable fire pit round combined with steel furnishings.

4. Geometric Garden

Blend your hardscape with other landscape elements in a geometric garden inspired by French country designs. These designs provide plenty of space for walking, meditating, or practicing yoga.

Pavers can be utilized to surround small, square green patches used for planting native or exotic greenery.
