Want a grass lawn that stands out from your neighbors’ front yards? There are plenty of ways to play up your yard! Here are some ideas we have to help you take a standard sod lawn to the next level with some unique landscaping ideas:
Your home is your palace, and your yard is a place where you should feel like royalty every time you step onto your lawn. Create a checkered pattern that’s marked by sod and stone or tile to elevate your outdoor experience.
A checkered pattern alone sounds like a pretty simple concept, but there are plenty of complex lawn projects that take the idea of checker boards to the next level. You are afforded the ability to create a checkered lawn that’s as simple or complicated as you wish, and your guests are sure to appreciate any of the artful avenues you choose to use.
Take dimension to a new level by layering up with steps made of steel. Just as vertical storage inside your house can create additional space and enhance the illusion of a place, making it bigger than it really is, a layered lawn can offer a tiered presentation of an otherwise ordinary space.
Layering techniques are often excellent ways to balance bulky items that can be focal points on the property. If you have a big tree on one side of the yard, a layered design might be the perfect way to balance that element and create an easy-to-view curb appeal that plays to its own landscape aesthetics.
Find Your Focus
Your lawn doesn’t have to be all about sod! Just like a great paint job can be perfectly accented by just the right front door on your house, a beautiful lawn can easily be enhanced with the right decorative items. Create a focal point in your yard that will serve as a conversation and compliment piece when visitors stop by.
The great thing about most focal points that belong on the lawn is that you can create your own if you feel like embarking on a DIY project. Otherwise, there are plenty of store-bought options that will make exceptional yard accessories.
Great lawn-worthy focal points that you might want to consider adding your yard could include
- A fire pit
- An outdoor room
- A water feature
If you want a lawn that makes people pay attention, beautiful grass is just the beginning. A little creativity and out-of-the-box thinking when it comes to your blades can completely change the personality of your property. There are plenty of ideas you probably have never even thought about. Take some time to peruse the internet for interesting ideas, and when you’ve compiled some inspirational items, contact sod professionals.
