A Curved Landscape Doesn’t Have to Be Boring
A blog post about landscaping small yards recently caught our attention.
Professional landscapers in Baltimore gave several tips for how to make a backyard space look larger through professional landscaping. One great suggestion was to avoid lining the fence with trees and shrubs, and to consider edging in curved patterns and sweeping lines to add beauty and space.
Curbing Allows for Curved Patterns
We specialize in custom concrete curbing, which allows for the effect that the article recommends. Instead of having a straight-lined perimeter that makes the lawn look smaller and caged in, use concrete curbing to create the sweeping lines and soft borders. Curbing is long-lasting and will be the perfect fit for a small backyard. Rather than having the focus be on limited space, concrete curbing will attract the eye and add sophistication to any professional landscaping area – big or small.
Customizing the Curbing Shapes
Because concrete curbing is customized, it can be colored, shaped and designed to your specifications. We pour each brick that is installed, so we can create curbing in the shape and pattern you desire. Start by spending time in your backyard and drawing out how you’d like your curbing to be shaped. Then call your professional landscapers to make recommendations on the right shape and color for your curbing. Curbing is long-lasting and will add the “pop” to outdoor landscaping.
Adding Colors and Plants in a Small Backyard
Once the curved curbing is poured, enhance the flower beds with colorful plants and garden decor. As the article recommends, make sure to not put too many large pieces in the backyard, and plant shrubs and flowers that will not outgrow your space. Scale your lawn to make sure that you have the right size of items before purchasing.
