Don’t Forget the Sides!

When we prepare the perfect dinner for friends or family, we put a lot of effort into picking and preparing the starter, as well as fabulous side dishes that help round out a balanced meal. When many homeowners labour for months planning their perfect outdoor oasis with water features, garden patios, and quiet little getaway corners amidst the flowers and trees, they forget the side yards. In a way, it’s like serving a burger without the fries.

Side yards are an important part of a home’s overall character and function.  You can create practical yard spaces or even more cosy living areas for relaxing and retreating after a long day’s work. However, often we fill these spaces with rubbish bins, old garden hoses and throw away tools, lawn clippings or dog kennels, while completely ignoring the way they look.  We live under the illusion that everyone else that sees your home will ignore them too. Not happening.

While you might still need the spaces for rubbish bins, dog kennels, and storage, you can quickly and easily clean them up. It doesn’t take any more effort on your part to have those spaces covered with paving stones; put in a gate or  wooden fence that separates these spaces from your main yard. There are many options, ideas, and styles to create a cohesive look throughout your outdoor space. So when preparing for summer, don’t just think about the main dish, or yard area, think of all the sides too. You’ll be surprised how easy, affordable and functional these extras can be.
