Want to Expand Your Living Space? Read These Landscape Construction Tips

If you love the look and feel of the interior of your Oswego, IL, home, it may make sense to look into expanding your living space to your backyard. Landscape construction experts can help you spread your living footprint from your roof-covered walls to the great open outdoors.

Let Creativity Reign

Newly installed modern hardscapes and freshly designed softscapes broaden where you spend your time, making the most of all your available space while also increasing property value. You can have drab, empty areas brought to new life. Choose decorative structures like pergolas and water fountains, functional areas like outdoor kitchens and patios, or just-for-fun choices like pools and designated spaces for sporting activities.

Separates Work Well Together

If you have a large area to work with, the possibilities are nearly endless. The backyard could be partitioned into separate spaces that have different purposes, all under a cohesive design. Imagine what your life would be like with landscaping that’s both functional and relevant to how you want to spend your hours outdoors. You could open your backdoor to a fully furnished patio that leads to a top-of-the-line outdoor kitchen. From there, make your way toward the covered dining area, where you can easily entertain. Some feet over could a retaining wall with a built-in waterfall that spills into your kidney-shaped pool, and just past that a fire pit with surrounding seating, where everyone could hang out after a good swim. Goldleaf Landscape Inc.’s experts can help you conceptualize and create your vision.

Switch Things Up

If you’re not one for lots of structural elements, consider having your landscape focus on visually appealing features. A flower garden could resemble a tropical burst of colors, or a reflective pond bordered with natural stone or featuring aquatic plants could give you a relaxing way to enjoy your expanded living space.

On a Walkabout

Whether you have a big or smaller yard, it’s integral to have walkways or paths to navigate your way around and add to the aesthetic. A walking path not only makes it easy for anyone to get to your newly established outdoor areas, it will help forge the connection between the life you live indoors and the one you’ve envisioned for the outdoors.
