Beautiful Garden and Backyard Retreats

Be inspired here with beautiful, creative secret gardens carved out by home owners to create a small piece of paradise to rest, relax and nurture the soul.

Are you looking for ideas or inspiration for a beautiful garden or backyard retreat? Here are 5 ideas to create a backyard oasis to pamper yourself where you can unwind, enjoy some fresh air, and have fun with friends and family, by transforming an outdoor space into a backyard retreat.

1. Make your space more private.

You can bring privacy to your backyard without breaking your budget.

Your outdoor space will feel more like an oasis if it has a sense of enclosure. Walls, tall plants, and elevation changes work together to create a space that feels surrounded, private, and secure.

Build a privacy screen or put up a simple lattice fence or pergola . Plant trees along your property or use super-sized planters. You can fill these large planters with tall decorative grasses, flowers or bamboo. Grow a living wall or hang outdoor curtains around your patio.

2. Create a sitting zone or a relaxation zone.

To create an inviting seating area, choose a color theme, gather outdoor pillows in patterns you like. Choose fabrics that are water resistant and/or dry quickly, resist UV rays and clean easily. Try adding a stylish outdoor rug.

It doesn’t get much better than an afternoon nap in a hammock, being rocked to sleep by a gentle breeze to the sound of rustling leaves.

3. Incorporate lots of plants.

Surround your outdoor space with lush greenery. Plants are the ultimate outdoor decorations, and a variety of colors, textures, and shapes makes your outdoor space energetic and exciting to be around.

Climbing vines have a certain magical quality to them, and depending on what kind of structures you have available, they can be trained to climb over doorways, up trees, trellises, or archways.

Trees are mostly low-maintenance additions that help seclude you from nosy neighbors. They also create a green landscape, shield your property from wind and noise, create shade and offer beautiful scenery.

4. Have a focal point.

Whether that focal point is a water feature, or a sitting area, or a statue etc.

Fountains, statues, and art enhance the beauty of your outdoor space. If you enjoy the soothing sound of trickling water, consider adding a water feature that serve as the focal point of your yard. There is something so relaxing about the sound of slow-flowing water.

5. Create an area of shade.

Whether you create shade through trees, a pergola or an umbrella, creating an area to cool off in from the sun is important part of creating a backyard retreat.
