The new year brings a feeling of possibility and new beginnings. Let this be the year you take your yard to the next level with the new landscaping you’ve been dreaming of. There are so many possibilities. For people who love to cook, consider starting an herb garden or even growing a few veggies. California’s weather makes starting a garden possible almost any time. Rosemary, thyme, and lavender can double as drought-tolerant ground cover, too. A few attractive pots for growing tomatoes beautify a patio, as well as providing fabulous produce for new recipes. While you’re dreaming, dream big and think about an outdoor kitchen, to bring together a love of cooking and socializing.
New landscaping can also include adding hardscape or sculpture elements to your yard or patio. A Japanese-inspired rock garden can be a soothing choice. Consider investing in an outdoor sculpture and build a design concept around it. An outdoor fireplace with built-in seating gives you another place to entertain guests, relax as a family, or find some alone time. Homeowners who enjoy games might consider a bocce ball court, a sturdy croquet set, or even a foosball table. Once you get brainstorming, the possibilities are endless. 2016 should be the year you really enjoy your home’s outdoor spaces.
