landscaping mississaugaWhile temperatures in Mississauga, Brampton and Oakville might still be on the cold side, preventing you from really doing much in your yard, sitting inside and considering some of the modifications you would like to make to your landscape in 2017 is a great way to start the year. Is there a landscaping project that you have been meaning to do for sometime but have never quite found the time or money to get it done? Or perhaps you feel like your yard isn’t quite right in its current state but you are not sure what is missing? Not to worry, the experts at Pyramid Contracting Inc. have put together a few ideas for you based on our three decades of experience in the industry.

Landscaping Projects that Could Enhance Your Yard in 2017

Making changes to your landscape doesn’t need to be overly complex or expensive, simple adjustments can often make a big difference in the way that your yard is perceived and allow you to enjoy it for years to come. Below you will find some suggestions with regards to changes or additions that you could make this year.

Flagstone Patios and Walkways

Patios are great outdoor spaces to have, allowing you to socialize with friends and family or simply enjoy some downtime at the weekend, while a walkway that works its way around your property is a visually appealing way to connect the various different parts of your outdoor area. Why flagstone? Where do we start, it offers an attractive natural look that few other materials can compete with, it’s durable, it’s a non-slip surface and can be installed very easily. How’s that?

Water Features

There’s something about a water feature, how water softly trickles down it as you sit peacefully in your garden, that is extremely soothing. Not only do they sound great, but water features also look great and come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, so it’s really a landscaping project that can be tailored to the budget and space you have available.

Don’t Just Plant at Ground Level

Incorporate trellises into the design of your yard and plant vines that will grow upwards. One landscaping feature that often gets our clients excited is a seated area that is surrounded by these trellises. This can be created using either a bench or a single chair and some standard trellises, and produces a truly wonderful spot that you can enjoy during the warmer months of the year.

Potted Plants Can Still Go in the Garden

Many people think that potted plants belong indoors; think again! Get hold of some unique looking pots that complement the plants that you place inside them and carefully position them around your yard. This is a cheap way to add an artistic element to your yard and the end result can be truly stunning.

Add Lighting to Your Landscaping

If you don’t currently have much outdoor lighting you should make this landscaping project a priority in 2017. As well as enabling you to see after the sun goes down, allowing you to continue using your outdoor space well into the night with your family and friends, carefully selected lighting plays a big part in creating the perfect ambience and it doesn’t even have to cost you a whole lot either.

Stone Walls for Your Raised Beds

Again, we recommend using a garden block for your retaining wall. These walls do so much more than contain your raised beds and create a boundary between them and your lawn. For a start, they add depth and texture to your yard and help you to cover infertile areas with a fertile layer of topsoil, in addition to assisting with drainage in these areas. Simple, effective and powerful from a visual standpoint. Why not make 2017 the year when you add them to your yard?
