Tips for Your Backyard from Brooklyn Tree Company

A person’t backyard is their personal oasis. It is where they can go to relax, entertain guest or play with their children. However, homeowners may have a difficult time ever imagining that because of the poor landscape design of their backyard. There may not be room, trees taking up space, dead grass or too close to their neighbor. With the proper visual and tips Brooklyn Tree Company believes that any backyard can be your personal sanctuary.

Removal all stumps and dead trees.

By taking away the left over stumps you can create more flat land to design on top of. Although it is important to keep a few trees for shade, if it means making more room to add grass or a backyard deck you can remove it. Trees take up a lot of space, and if your yard is limited it might be in your best interest to remove them. After you do you can add grass, stones for a seating area or a swing set.

Add Lights.

If your backyard is lacking space or is very dark you can add lights. There are a variety of LED lights available online that are cost efficient and don’t require much maintenance. You can hand the lights up on your house, wrap it around a patio set or line them on your fence. If you don’t have anything in your backyard you can add some poles in the ground and link the lights to create a private space.

Design a garden.

Flowers can add life to your backyard. They can also add some color. Go visit your local nursery with the size and layout of your backyard. Depending on how much maintenance you want they will tell you which flowers to buy. If you do not have a fence you can buy flowers and shrubs to add a border to your property line.

Turn your backyard into a movie theater.

If you have limited space and swing sets or playing ball is out of the question, create a move theater. All you need is a white fabric or board that you can hang up with hooks against your house or fence. Or you can get a pole and attached the board or cloth to it. Purchase a few comfy chairs or couches where you can your family can lay back on with some popcorn and snacks. This can become a family ritual and allow you to enjoy your home like you never have.
