The warmer weather is on its way in, and there is nothing better than lounging outdoors amongst friends and family.  Good planning is the key to ensuring you maximize the most out of your backyard area. It can be over whelming trying to tackle the backyard in order to get it ready for summer, so we are going to share our top ideas with you.

1. Greenery and Colour

Personally, we love being surrounding by an array of greenery within our backyards, it creates ambience and style. Not only do you visual achieve a creative and eco-friendly backyard, it can also save you money in the long run. Spring is the perfect time to start planting all of those veggies and fruits. Passionfruits, bananas, citrus, pawpaw, rocket, spring onion, lettuce, pumpkin, cucumber, eggplant, tomatoes, avocados and many more are among some of your favorable fruit and vegetables to plant in spring. If you are thinking herbs your best bet is parsley, sweet basil, marjoram, thyme, dill and coriander! It can be hard to narrow down the plant choice when it comes to gardening and a great way to cover this is maximizing your space through foliage systems.

2. Lighting  

It’s all fun and games until someone hurts themselves in the dark. Although there is a range of low lighting systems available, they do not achieve the coverage and visibility that catenary lighting systems offer. Our favorite aspect about catenary lighting is its non-invasive installation. Majority of catenary systems are high hanging equaling a 0% trip hazard rate, this also allows more room for you to set up your yard as you desire.

3. Safety

Balustrade are critical when ensuring the safety of children. Balustrades allow you to place barriers to keep children and animals out of certain areas or assist people with balance down walkways and stairs. Balustrades can often be invasive within a backyard area, which is why we like to recommend a wire infill system to our clients. The wire infill system allows minimal visible disruption but still comes with all of the safety benefits of a metal or wooden balustrade.
