Birds are chirping and the sun is trying to make appearances but Washington just likes to keep it hidden. We just sprung forward time wise and walked into Spring on Sunday so where is the nice weather? Living in this state that is always the question we have around this time of year. We are all ready for warm weather and clear skies that allow us to be outside more and not get wet. Don’t get me wrong, this rain is nice, but after a while, I think it’s safe to say we are all ready for some nice weather. Don’t even need to go far, just to be able to walk outside and not get rained on would be a bonus! With warm weather comes fun construction projects like outside living space or an addition.

By now, the birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and cloudless sunny skies are ahead. Warmer weather means more people will be spending time outdoors-and there’s no better time to rethink your backyard design and try something new.
“While confined to our homes in 2020, many of us had to recreate a sense of normalcy using any extra space we had. An empty backyard provides the perfect canvas to paint a new reality,” says Ashley Renne Nsonwu, host of the show “Ashley Renne” on Smart Healthy Green Living streaming service.
The way you decorate your yard is definitely a personal preference. If you like your barbecue grill front and center, then by all means go for it. But if you’re looking to push the envelope with your outdoor décor, our experts have some suggestions.
Rule No. 1 to break: Neutral is best
Rule No. 2 to break: Your lawn should take up the most space
Let’s face it, the lawn has traditionally been the crowning glory of a backyard. Not so much anymore!
“People are shifting away from the idea of an unused lawn. In 2021, turn that manicured lawn into a functional, outdoor sanctuary,” says Nsonwu. “You can use your yard to grow food, compost, collect rainwater, and attract pollinators. You can create an outdoor yoga/meditation space, kids play area, alternative work environment for your Zoom calls, socially distanced seating areas for visiting friends, or even a greenhouse.”
Rule No. 3 to break: Manicure your shrubs and trees
Tailored backyards are so yesteryear. In a post pandemic world, formal outdoor spaces with perfectly manicured shrubs and cookie-cutter trees have to go.
“We want spaces that feel natural, not curated. Sprinkle trees and shrubs throughout your backyard to elevate your space sculpturally,” says Nsonwu.
“When playing with your yard design, try to evoke that same sense of wonder you get while walking through lush forests, wild deserts, or untamed fields,” she adds. “Invite your woodier plants to mix and mingle with your flowers. This will create a more dynamic ecosystem for wildlife and a deeper sensory experience for you.”
Rule No. 4 to break: Outdoor living is only for daytime
“Add a feature like an outdoor chess set, cornhole, a pool table, or a bocce ball court,” he adds. “Not only will these look great, they will be engaging spaces that will make your backyard the places to be.”
A permanent feature like a bocce court can also add value to your home in case you ever want to sell.
Rule No. 6 to break: Exotic plants are a must
“A more earth-friendly approach to gardening means turning to native plants to dress up your backyard rather than invasive, exotic ones,” says Nsonwu. “Find native plants from your local nursery that work with your desired aesthetic. They are essential to keeping the ecological system from going out of whack, whereas exotic plants cause a loss in biodiversity.”
