Landscaping Features that Serve Multiple Purposes
It is common to see multipurpose features throughout homes that include many benefits. They can help maximize space, reduce costs, and minimize the amount of clutter in your home. These same benefits also apply to landscaping. Regardless of the size of your backyard, there are benefits in investing in multipurpose landscape features Consider these landscaping features for your Winnipeg landscaping or Calgary landscaping projects.
Outdoor pergolas provide protection from the elements whether you are dealing with rain or sunshine. Pergolas provide you with shade during the hot summer days and protect you from rainy days so you can still enjoy the outdoors. Pair your pergola with wraparound curtains on each side for a more private and intimate experience.
In addition to the protection and privacy provided by a pergola, you can add even more landscape features to it. It can double as greenspace by adding planter baskets that can be hung from the structure, adding even more aesthetic appeal to the pergola, and providing more shade.
Built-In Seating Walls
Built-in seating walls have become a common fixture for backyards with an outdoor fire pit. Built-in seating walls can accommodate more people compared to traditional chairs. This helps create a more seamless flow when you are entertaining guests at your home. Another benefit is there is little work required to maintain seating walls, so you never have to worry about replacing anything like damaged or broken chairs.
While these seats provide a space for guests to sit back and relax, they also provide more benefits besides seating. These landscape features can also be used as a heat reflector or wind barrier. It can help keep your fire pit burning on windy evenings and keep your guest warm as it gets cooler in the evenings.
Vertical Wall Gardens
Just like any garden, vertical wall gardens help breathe life and colour into your backyard. Besides providing an appealing aesthetic they also enable you to maximize your grow space. Their height provides better air circulation to the plants and minimizes damage from pets or wild animals.
You can also use vertical wall gardens as a privacy screen that can block out neighbors or unwanted views, as well as a sound barrier to help reduce noise levels. The result is a beautiful landscape that feels in tune with nature.
