Here are some of our expert tips for what you can do to turn your backyard into a paradise.
Give the Yard Some Space with Retaining Walls
With retaining walls, you can create interesting and intriguing levels in your backyard. Use our blocks to build the walls that can surround a raised garden or sitting space where you can relax or entertain. Or if you have a sloping area, the walls can be used to flatten out the ground and give you some extra room for activities. You can also use logs or treated pine sleepers for the walls if you want a more whimsical and natural look.
Lay Some Paving
One of the more satisfying backyard projects is to lay down your very own paving. It’s an easy DIY project that will give your backyard a clean, smart finish. You can lay down pavers to create a pathway or it can be your foundation for outdoor entertaining in lieu of a deck.
Decorative Gravels for Colour and Texture
Use decorative gravel in contrasting colours and textures to fill empty spaces or as a ground cover. You can also use them to create a border along a pathway or landscape. Mix up the colours and borders to create a bright and dynamic look.
Bark and Mulch to Contrast the Green
Bark and mulch can be used for many practical and decorative things in landscaping, from lining a pathway to filling a flower bed to serving as a buffer of water around a drainage pipe.
