Landscaping Projects

Plants are certainly necessary elements in the landscape, but when it comes to solving problems, enhancing spaces, and adding practical elements, landscaping decisions are key. We have strategies and ideas to tackle nearly every size and shape; front, back or side of your yard. Most homeowners want at least part of their yard to provide privacy for family and friends, which is why we've gathered great solutions for bumping up the sanctuary in your yard. Structures -- pergolas, decks, and patios -- can be great additions to nearly every landscape, and you'll find inspiration on how and where to use them, as well as how versatile they are, with our collection of tips and photos. If you're starting fresh or starting new on your backyard, you may not know what to tackle first. The Backyard Landscape Solutions quiz can help. Using a few short questions, we'll help you figure out your toughest problems, identify fantastic plants, and share a downloadable plan to give your project the kick-start it needs. We also have solutions to some of the most common troubling backyard landscape dilemmas, including slopes, oddly shaped yards, shade issues, and privacy needs.
