Five Modern Backyard Landscaping Ideas for the Summer

May 26, 2015

Toronto, ON, Canada – May 26, 2015 /MarketersMedia/ — FSI Landscape Supply, a leading provider of high-quality landscaping materials for both residential and commercial landscaping in the GTA, is announcing five modern backyard landscaping ideas for the summer.

“Summer is right around the corner, and any resident of the GTA knows that once summer hits, it’s imperative to spend as much time outside as possible,” says Ross Dirrocolo, founder of FSI Landscape Supply. “For many, that means going to the parks or taking walks by the lake. But for homeowners, enjoying the warm weather could be as simple as sitting in their backyards.”

According to Dirrocolo, having the option to open up the back door and enjoy the summer within one’s own home is a great feeling. However, homeowners can’t enjoy their backyard if it’s not done the way they like, so the team at FSI Landscape Supply recently announced some creative summer backyard landscaping tips to help make an outdoor area usable and visually appealing.

“The first modern idea that’s becoming trendy is low-maintenance gardens,” he explains. “People’s lives don’t typically slow down in the summer, which means time is still an issue. Having a garden that’s easy to manage but is still beautiful is a great idea, not to mention lower in cost.”

Dirrocolo notes that drought water plants are another modern backyard idea. These plants don’t require a lot of water and can resist harsh weather conditions; this saves time and money, and allows for unique garden creations.

“Fountains and water walls are the third concept to consider adding to a backyard,” he adds. “They’re relaxing and scenic and when paired with a blended garden, for example, they can really make a backyard look spectacular.”

Dirrocolo observes that fabrics and furniture are things a lot of homeowners have been including in their backyard landscaping. These pieces are specially made for backyards, are fade-resistant and waterproof, and can last through different seasons.

“The final idea is placing a creative swimming pool in the backyard,” Dirrocolo concludes. “This is especially beneficial for a large space or when the homeowners want to add something fun for the kids without causing an eyesore.”
