Becoming a homeowner for the first time is an exciting experience. Purchasing your own space with a beautiful back yard is a homeowner’s dream. For some, the yard is exactly as envisioned, but for others, there is some personalization needed to really make it your own. You may desire to change some of the flower beds, outdoor furniture, or revitalize your lawn to create a space that you love. As an award-winner residential landscaping company in Kingsport, Promier Landscapes seeks to help you make the most of your first backyard with these tips, so you can relax and enjoy the outdoors with the whole family.

  1. Placement of Shrubs and Flowers

Planting trees, shrubs, and flowers in your backyard are great additions to provide beauty by adding color or dimension. When making the decision to add new plant-life, think about the effect the plants may make in the future. For example, be cautious of planting a tree in the middle of the yard as it could block your view as it grows. Trees, shrubs, and flower beds are best kept around the perimeter of your backyard to reduce interference with activities. If you are thinking about adding new trees or shrubs to create your backyard haven, our residential landscapers in Bristol could provide their expert advice along with some custom design ideas. 

  1. Outdoor Dining Options

Inviting your friends and family over for an outdoor event could be a time to create memories. An outdoor kitchen could provide a food preparation area and an outdoor dining space. Consider using materials and furniture that are designed to withstand the extremes of weather in your area. For example, wood tables are susceptible to rot, which could attract unwanted pests into your yard. Also, it is important to thoroughly clean the area because food attracts ants and other unwanted insects. To design your outdoor dining space, Promier Landscapes could professionally design your outdoor kitchen for your Kingsport home using a detailed plan suitable to your taste and budget.

  1. Entertaining with Outdoor Games

Whether it is cornhole, tag, or badminton, these backyard games are a way the family can play together no matter their age. Although these games provide entertainment, they could also damage your lawn if care is not taken. Outdoor games could block sunlight that is needed for healthy grass, or they could compact the soil resulting in dry brown spots requiring aeration. These areas can be treated by our professional lawn maintenance team in Johnson City to restore your landscape to its original health and beauty.

  1. Seating Areas with a Great View

Whether you focus on the pool, firepit, or a great view, relaxed seating areas are always welcome. Once you designate your lounging area, the placement of a hammock, bench, or chairs could provide a perfect place to read a good book. Keep in mind, when you add seating elements, the area of grass below the furniture will not receive as much sun exposure resulting in brown spots. Therefore, consider rotating your furniture, or Promier Landscapes can professionally install a stationary seating area by using pavers.

  1. Pathway to Paradise

Frequently walking on your grass along the same path could compact the soil causing problems for grass growth. Therefore, stepping-stones are a beautiful way that leads to your backyard paradise while protecting your lawn. Also, creating a path to or surrounding the area around a water hose or house spigot can reduce lawn damage. If there are areas where grass struggles to grow, contact your lawn care specialists in Kingsport to aerate the damaged areas reviving them to a full beautiful lawn once again.
