Add depth to your backyard with hedges. Short hedges are a great way to add dimension and pattern. They also separate certain areas of your backyard, almost like tiny walls.

Fun Wheelbarrow Idea

This fun DIY idea can be tailored to your preferences. Choose color schemes in your flowers and play around with the wheelbarrow style to add your own personal touch to your unique backyard. 

Doghouse Green Roof

This win-win idea is cute for your pet and backyard while also being environmentally friendly. 

Rooftop Garden

Add a unique and colorful touch to your landscaping. This will surely impress the neighbors. 

Night Light Pots

This creative and super cool idea is great for those entertaining summer nights you spend outside. 


Bridges always add a surprise element. Who has a bridge in their backyard? You should because you know that it adds style and whimsy.


Water features are an amazing addition to a backyard. You will not regret putting a koi pond in your backyard. Imagine enjoying your nice hot cup of joe in the morning listening to the running water. Such a beautiful setting!

Vegetable Garden

Whether it is large or small, you need to take advantage of homegrown veggies. Green thumbs will appreciate the garden organization in these ideas! Add a really neat fence to give a whimsical, Secret Garden feel.

Cinder Block Idea

This chic and urban idea is great for those that love the modern look. This keeps everything in its place while still adding a unique style element. Upcycling is in, so take advantage!


Whether it is in mulch or in grass, Type A people will really appreciate this custom landscape design because it provides the ultimate backyard organization. Whatever rhyme or reason you have behind your sectionals, it will make your backyard look less cluttered.

Labeled Garden

Speaking of organization, labeled gardens can help you remember what you planted! Such an easy, helpful, and cute idea!


Add texture and walk with ease when you add a stone or brick pathway. 

Outdoor Sunroom

We love this idea! It is a great way to get in touch with nature but still be comfortable!

Unique Ideas

These fun ideas are great for those that like living on the wild side. Try something new and let your backyard be as funky as you are.

Pool Garden

Do not let the pool get all the attention. Add surrounding custom pool gardens to add color and texture. 

Beach Garden

Who says a garden needs grass? A sandy, beachy garden can be a beautiful coastal wonder. 

Garden Wall

Garden walls are great for adding color. You can mix and match the flowers, fixtures, and flower boxes. This is an eclectic feel that allows your style and color scheme to shine through.
