Decks and fences can add an inviting outdoor living space to your home’s exterior, but adding landscaping elements can further enhance its aesthetic appeal and functionality. Here are some of the best landscaping ideas to go along with your Calgary deck and fence setup.
Add Plants and Flowers
Planting flowers around your deck and fence can add a splash of color and texture to the outdoor space. Consider low-maintenance options such as succulents, ornamental grasses, and native species that thrive in Calgary’s climate. Hanging baskets, pots, and planters can also be used to add height and dimension to the landscaping design.
Add a Water Feature
A water feature such as a fountain or small pond can add an enchanting and serene element to your outdoor area. It serves as a focal point, creating an idyllic atmosphere for you to enjoy while sitting on your deck. Just be sure that the choice of water feature matches both your deck and fence style and fits within budget.
Install Outdoor Lighting
Outdoor lighting can add to the beauty and safety of your deck and fence area. Consider installing path lights along the walkway leading to your deck, or string lights or post lights around both. Not only does this make the area more inviting for daytime use, but it’s also more functional at nighttime.
Use Natural Stone or Pavers
Natural stone or pavers can be used to create a pathway leading to your deck or as border around your fence. They add an earthy, rustic aesthetic and provide a smooth and stable surface for walking on. Make sure the stone/paver type you select complements both your deck and fence style as well as fits within budget.
Add Outdoor Furniture
Outdoor furniture like chairs, tables and benches can make your deck and fence area more functional and comfortable. Choose pieces that complement the style of your deck or fence area in weather-resistant materials like metal or wood. You may also add throw pillows and blankets for additional coziness and visual interest.
