Backyard Landscape Design Idea: Soften a Deck Improve the view from below your deck by adding planting beds to camouflage the leggy supports. Here, a six-foot-wide flower border was planted around the base of the deck and stairway. It not only hides the deck’s unsightly underbelly, but it also adds tons of color through the summer. Tall perennials such as ornamental grass, sedum, and black-eyed Susan provide plenty of screening. See our favorite ideas for backyard decks.

Build Color with Containers Annuals can be less expensive than perennials and shrubs, and they’re a great way to add color and impact to a backyard, especially when arranged in containers. Here, matching vessels offer design cohesion, as does a similar color palette for the plants. Another backyard idea: A stone slab on top of a lumber scrap makes for a casual outdoor side table.

Soften the Edges with Vintage or Handmade Finds Sweeping fabric shades — made from yardage, sheets, or other suitable material — add elegance and beauty to a backyard patio space. Plus, they can be used to shield family and friends from intense rays at key times of the day. In place of a more expensive light fixture, repurpose vintage elements into decorative backyard focal points. Here, nonworking chandeliers are outfitted with candles and trailing vines. Vintage Outdoor Living Ideas

Use Off-the-Shelf Materials Custom elements easily increase a budget for backyard landscaping, but creative recasting can get you the same function at a much lower cost. Ordinary blocks elevate lengths of decking for a bar-meets-cooking-meets-seating backyard idea. The same materials in a different configuration can also be used to create an outdoor dining table, coffee table, or side table. Ideas for Small Backyards
