Some creative ideas for decorating a backyard include using ground pavers in an interesting design, adding lights and turning a garden into different functional spaces. Creating different areas for different family members is another good idea.
Consider the use of the backyard when planning the decorating theme. For example, children often enjoy having their own personal garden space, which can be decorated in a more child-like theme. This might include having a fairy garden and decorating it with bright colors. Select different sections of the backyard to decorate in different themes, such as having a peaceful oasis area with a water fountain and flowers in calming colors like blues and greens.
Adding lights to a garden is always a good idea, since the lights themselves become part of the décor If laying paving stones or stepping stones, create a pattern on the ground with them as part of the decor.
