If you have been living with the same unfinished backyard year after year the New Year is the perfect time to make a commitment to creating a brand new garden. Make a New Year’s resolution to create a stunning garden oasis for 2015 following these easy steps to spruce up your backyard:
1. Do some research
Use the internet to find inspiration for ideas to create your dream garden. Look for great backyard ideas that will work well with the style of your home and size of your backyard. Create a dream book and fill it with pictures that you can refer to once you start shopping.
2. Visit OmbraSole
Consider the shade and sun in your garden and look for the perfect spot to place awnings, pergolas, gazebos, parasols or garden furniture. Talk to the experts at OmbraSole to see how they can help with your plan. They will consider all of the great garden ideas you have put together and help you decide what will work best for your needs. You might consider having a retractable awning if the sun and shade changes in your garden or look at more permanent solutions such as a fixed retractable awning, pergola or gazebo if you have full sun. You can also discuss year round or three season options as well as garden furniture to be able to relax under these shade solutions. They create all products on-site and really customize your products to your needs and wants.
3. Finalize your Style Choices
Once you decide what will work best for your needs you can start considering the design, style and fabric of the items you will need to create your perfect outdoor space. You will have many colors and fabrics from which to choose for your awning and garden furniture. You can decide to go for neutral tones that will blend in with the colours of your home such as the brick or siding. You can also look for more contrast to bring a little life into your garden for a more casual look. As for the fabric, you can go with either Sunbrella’s (3 season) acrylic canvas, that is water-repellent and filters up to 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays or with a vinyl (4 seasons) canvas, that is perfect for year round use and 100% waterproof.
4. Garden and Planters
Once the spring arrives you can shop for the plants on your list to create stunning planters and garden beds as the finishing touch to your garden oasis.
It is easy to spruce up your garden using these simple steps. Planning ahead will allow you to have your garden furniture, awning or gazebo ready to create a beautiful outdoor space to enjoy throughout the spring, summer and well into the fall. On top of it, you’ll be able to avoid the hustle and bustle at the beginning of the warm summer months and the long wait times of delivery and installation of your new product.
