Inspirations: Back yard makeovers in time for summer

Has it got warmer – or is it just me? The sun came out this morning and lit up my sad-looking backyard. Time to get some makeover inspiration before barbecue season!

Inspiration #1: Taking your outdoor space to new levels

Not very inspiring, is it? Fortunately this is the “Before” shot…

Inspiration #2: What a difference a deck makes

After: But the addition of a gazebo, deck, thoughtful landscaping and outdoor furniture is all it takes to transform a very ordinary yard into a space you and the family will enjoy throughout the summer.

Inspiration #3: Lifting the game for space and privacy

Before: This yard was even sadder than mine – a damp, featureless concrete jungle, suitable only for keeping the rubbish bin – until…

After: … the addition of natural timber in the form of a taller fence, raised deck and planters filled with fast-growing bamboo to screen off those ghastly concrete walls.

Inspiration #4: Bringing the indoors outdoors

Inspiration #5: Don’t be afraid to splash some colour around

While it’s great to have a backyard that brings you back to nature, the use of colour can add vibrancy and life to the space, making it just the place for entertaining and relaxing – the choice is yours!
