Many a front garden or backyard lawn contains withered areas that soon turn into eyesores. What is worse, they could become breeding grounds for vermin and harbor snakes within bushes. Isn’t it a good idea to clean up and add some aesthetic charm? The expense of stone materials is not going to be much, anyway.
A rock garden or fish pond may be attractive propositions. Yet the fishpond might turn out to be a liability if not taken good care of. Maybe mosquitoes, frogs, and other slimy creatures would inhabit if not properly supervised. The rock garden carries no such dangers, though and landscaping ideas would be available in plenty online. A choice of flowering plants would provide lots of color and cheer at the appropriate seasons. In warm weather, they would flower the whole year too.
Create a fantasy world
Hardscaping the remote, difficult regions of the front garden or backyard would be esthetic and get rid of many headaches. Prepare a plan of action and work it out in a sketch on paper. Start with the four sides and carry out leveling if necessary. Alternatively, slopes could remain to highlight certain regions. A mini-stage may be possible in the raised part of the ground. The kids would love it.
Stone steps of a variety of colors and textures could cover a part of the ground. They provide safety too during the rains. Pavers of several hues could bring up the sides, stretching until the building walls. Consider cobbles, flagstone, and pebbles to cover the remaining region for a cute little fantasy world of assorted colors and shapes under the feet.
