Redwood landscaping can take a plain, uniform lawn, and transform it into an area with interesting sections reflecting the interests and activities of the homeowner. Not only does landscaping break up the monotony of a broad expanse of grass, but defining separate spaces for different uses can bring a sense of harmony to a yard. What are some of the ways that landscaping can reflect and bring to life things that are important to you?
If growing fresh vegetables, flowers or herbs inspires you, a raised bed will define your garden area in a beautifully simple way. For a raised bed, redwood heartwood is a great choice, as the material is less likely to warp than other materials. And, because redwood is naturally insect resistant, it will help create a natural barrier that will protect your plants.
Adding redwood lattice and lath to the side of a backyard structure can provide a place for climbing vines to grow. In combination with a redwood arbor, vines can provide welcome shade from the sun during warmer months. If you simply want to add an elegant visual barrier between two portions of your lawn, benderboard can be used to create a custom border for a stone walkway, define a gravel area for xeriscaping, or outline a flower bed. If you have little ones, you might want to include the Santa Cruz Sandbox in your redwood landscaping plans. If relaxation is what you seek in your backyard, you can add a hot tub or spa and an elegant Calistoga Spa Surround.
There are an endless number of landscaping features you can create with redwood landscaping products. But ultimately, you want your yard to reflect your interests. To get started planning your redwood landscaping, give some thought to the ways in which you would like to use your yard and what will best reflect your interests and personal styles.
