How to turn your backyard into a landscaped oasis

How to turn your backyard into a landscaped oasis

Looking at turning your new backyard into your own personal oasis? It can take a bit of planning and a lot of inspiration to make your backyard look exquisite, refreshing and ready for entertaining. The following ideas may help you with turning your backyard and garden into a landscaped oasis that you and your family will adore.

Think outdoor entertaining

Outdoor entertaining with a picnic-style table and chairs is always a hit during summer barbeques and get-togethers. Have a portion of your backyard reserved for relaxing outdoor entertaining, under a deck or awning area. Make sure the BBQ is nearby, too!

Use native grasses and flora

The Barwon Heads and Greater Geelong Surf Coast has a rich biodiversity that responds well to native grasses and flowers. Native plants in Anchoridge have an added advantage of only requiring a little water before “nature takes over” – as these grasses are tolerant to wind, frost, drought, and flood. Exotic plants can really harness the natural beauty of the surf coast in your garden.

If you’re looking for inspiration, why not incorporate aspects of your front landscaping design? Every lot purchased at Anchoridge comes with free front yard landscaping by award-winning Fleming’s Nurseries, who have carefully designed each option to include hardy plants that not only look stunning, they will withstand all weather conditions!

Create colour with gravel and edging

If flowers aren’t your thing, you can still add colour by creating paths with coloured gravel or paved edging. Laying coloured gravel or rocks over native plants can add a burst of colour to your backyard oasis. There are many different colours to choose from such as muted pastels, bolder hues, or natural tones such as grey and ochre.

Water feature or “room for cricket?”

A timeless popular choice is the water feature – a pond, birdbath, babbling brook, or miniature waterfall tucked away to the side or put in pride of place to create a real oasis feel. However, going overboard with water features might restrict the kids’ play area: you can’t have a good game of backyard cricket when a waterfall is in the way!

Smaller backyard? Think segments

If you are prioritising floor space in your new Anchoridge home, you may want to consider segmentation for your backyard. Going vertical by using flower boxes on your fence, for example, can help save space and still allow you to have a patch of grass for lazing about. Other ideas include a paved nook section for entertaining or a round patio as your entertainment hub.
