An easy backyard landscaping idea is to use concrete blocks to build a makeshift bench or a seat, while another easy idea is to add a trellis to give the backyard an extra architectural component. These projects require simple tools and a minimum amount of time.
To create a concrete bench in a backyard, simply lay concrete blocks on top of each other in a space in the yard. To make it comfortable, add a foam pad and decorative pillows.
A trellis is an easy way to make a single purchase into the focal point of a backyard. It can act as a pathway to a garden or the entrance to a patio.
