If you happened to have found the perfect house and relocated to Salem, NH, you might need some ideas on backyard decoration. Especially if you previously lived in a flat.

Professional movers southern NH made your relocation possible, now it’s up to you to do the rest. Here are some practical backyard decoration ideas that might come in handy.

Make an outline for better backyard decoration ideas

Before making any amendments and additions you may want to make a draft of how your garden should look like. Make a floor plan of your backyard to determine the major zones:

  • dining zone
  • playing zone
  • flower pot zones
  • relaxation zone
  • garden plants and flowers zone

Make another plan regarding the pieces of furniture and decorative items you will furnish your backyard with. If you hired professional household movers, your items are neatly packed and just waiting to be unpacked and spread around your backyard.

Be sure to make an inventory of the household items, decorative details, and pieces of furniture you are missing. You will easily find new things, for Salem, NH is a famous shopping destination.

Create a unique dining zone in your new backyard

On hot summers and colorful Indian summers of New Hampshire, dining outside seems delightful. In the area envisaged for dining, put light dining tables and chairs. A small coffee table with comfortable pieces of furniture would be a great extension of the dining area. After a delicious dinner, your family and friends can enjoy a cup of coffee and enjoy the lounging area. If any of your outdoor furniture is antique, it surely arrived in an impeccable state owing to antique furniture movers. Use decorative linen and colorful tableware to make the dining area vivid and pleasant. Put outdoor lanterns on the ground around the dining area to create a magical evening scene. The lanterns will give your garden mystical touch. If you wish to go the extra mile, set up a gazebo and make it a dining area.

And remember to put up the barbecue – how else are you going to make the best cookout in the neighborhood? If you wish to unwind after dinner, setting up a portable bar in the dining area would be convenient. This will save you from taking walking trips to the kitchen and back to serve your guests a glass of sparkling wine. Insert a rocking chair and a bench and you will be able to host more people.

For extra decoration add string lights wherever you can. They offer a simple yet effective solution when designing backyard space. Lights have an illuminating and dramatic effect, adding up to the movie-like scenery of your garden.

Playing area your kids will adore

Turning a part of your garden into a playground will make it more fun for the kids. Set up a trampoline and watch your kids having the best time. Swing and seesaw are inevitable on a playground too. Fun-loving guests and family members will not be able to resist jumping on a tire swing that brings back childhood memories and inspires laughter. If your backyard boasts a large tree, set up a treehouse for never-ending fun. Building a playing area in your backyard means your kids will always have an array of activities to spend their energy on.

Relaxation time

When the time comes to relax and perhaps read a book or listen to music, setting up a hammock is an ideal solution. Is there anything more soothing than taking a nap underneath the shade of an old oak? In lack of trees with an adequate distance between them, buy a hammock with a stand that can be moved around. This is the space where you can also stretch your yoga mat or do a light workout. Find a secluded place for your yoga or meditation exercise and decorate it with oriental blankets and pillows.

Plant flowers to turn your backyard into a real oasis

Nothing makes a backyard more lively than flowers and plants. Plant as many diverse flowers as you can to make your garden colorful. Planting perennial flowers will save you from excessive gardening work every year. Secure a gardening area with a small picket fence. That way your vibrant garden will be out of kids’ and pet’s reach. Hanging pots of flowers or seasons onto a vertical planter will also keep your plants away from children and animals and make your outdoor space even more beautiful.

Another trick to make your backyard eye-catching is planting lianas. Choose lianas like honeysuckle or wisteria, that give away the amazing and unique scent, besides the picturesque colors they have. Also, planting evergreens will keep your backyard fresh and green even during winter. Use evergreens, hedges, and grass to form the outline of the backyard. Make sure to position these plants properly and avoid overcrowding them.
