Are you looking for a unique idea to make your backyard landscaping stand out? At Davel Construction, we’re brimming with innovative ideas to make your landscaping stand out from the rest.

Here are some backyard landscaping ideas that will help make your property the envy of the neighbourhood.

1. Circular Stone Pathways

Laying out your pathways in rough stone has been the trend for a while. But if you want to do something a little different, try laying down perfectly cut circular stones for the pathway. If stone doesn’t appeal to you, perhaps try wooden slices from a tree trunk.

2. Pizza Oven Centerpiece

Outdoor kitchens are popular, but a barbeque isn’t the only focal point you can choose. A large, rustic pizza oven is a great option both aesthetically and for cooking. You can bake pizza, bruschetta, and a wide range of dishes in an outdoor pizza oven for your guests to enjoy.

3. Short Shrubs

How is your back fence looking? So many people leave the fence as it is. By adding a line of large shrubs at the back, you can break things up for a more professional look. You can also have the shrubs manicured into virtually any shape you like, whether pointed, spiraled, or rounded.

4. Fire and Fairy Lights

Are you thinking of adding a fire pit to your yard? If the answer is yes, you might want to disperse the source of light a bit by adding a trellis around the firepit and strong fairy lights. It’s not enough to detract from the light of the fire, but it is enough to add some ambiance.

5. The Desert Style

It’s an unusual choice in our Ontario climate, but a somewhat desert-themed garden can look amazing, and be low maintenance too. Add a light, tan-coloured stone as the foundation of your garden and potted succulents, cacti, and other desert-themed plants to complete the look.

6. Zig-Zag Gardens

If you have space to spare in your yard, and you’re thinking of adding in garden beds, surprise everyone with modern zig-zag beds. The straight lines are contemporary and beautiful, and the shape creates opportunities for various different spaces in the yard.

7. Pool and Trellis Combination

Pools are great features but depending on the layout of your backyard, it may not feel like the most private space. By adding a trellis to one side of the pool you can create privacy and make the pool look more modern. You can leave the planks bare or add vines to create a more lush atmosphere.

8. Potted Focal Points

Typically, homeowners like to place potted plants in various areas of the yard by themselves, or scattered here and there in a garden. If you find a large pot that you particularly like, you can instead make it a focal point. Place it down on interlocking and put a circular garden bed around it. It’s a surprising look that can be very beautiful.
