A backyard can be transformed into an oasis with the right planning, design, and implementation. Arbors and Patios will look to create a place of tranquility and relaxation, where one can escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Here are some tips on how to transform your backyard into an oasis:

  1. Plan the design: The first step in transforming your backyard into an oasis is to plan the design. Consider the size and shape of the space, as well as any existing features such as trees or structures. Decide on the overall style and theme, and make a list of must-have features such as seating areas, water features, and landscaping.

  2. Create a seating area: An important aspect of any oasis is a comfortable seating area. Consider adding a patio, deck, or outdoor furniture such as chairs and a table. Make sure the seating area is placed in a shady spot, preferably under a tree or covered area, to provide relief from the sun.

  3. Add water features: Water features such as a pond, fountain, or waterfall can add a peaceful ambiance to your backyard oasis. The sound of running water can create a calming atmosphere and drown out any background noise. Make sure to choose a water feature that fits the size and style of your backyard.

  4. Incorporate lighting: Lighting is an essential element of any backyard oasis. It can create a warm and inviting atmosphere and allow you to enjoy your space even after the sun sets. Consider installing outdoor lights such as string lights, lanterns, or landscape lighting.

  5. Plant landscaping: Landscaping can be used to create a lush and natural feel in your backyard oasis. Choose plants that are appropriate for your climate and soil type, and make sure to incorporate a mix of colors and textures. Consider using native plants to attract local wildlife such as butterflies and birds.

  6. Add privacy: To truly create a sense of escape in your backyard oasis, it's important to create some level of privacy. We all have nosy neighbors.  Consider adding a fence or privacy screen, or plant tall shrubs or trees around the perimeter of your yard. This will not only increase privacy but improve the overall mood of your space.   Get creative with materials.  Remember that the outdoors is an extension of your indoor space

  7. Hire the right contractor:  Talk to plenty of folks and ask for their guidance in designing an outdoor living project.   Since there are a million ways of creating a space.  Make sure you know what is important to YOU not the contractor.   Understand what kind of budget you would like to allow and work with the company who understands your vision and can communicate well with.    We at ARBORS AND PATIOS love this process as we know is crucial in creating a space that not only is functional but it’s beautiful to look at.   We want our creation to bring you joy and lasting memories.   Call us at 214-603-8071 to schedule your free onsite consultation.

In conclusion, transforming your backyard into an oasis takes careful planning and consideration. By incorporating comfortable seating, water features, lighting, landscaping, and privacy, you can create a tranquil and relaxing space where you can escape the stresses of daily life. With some creativity and effort, you can turn your backyard into a true oasis.
