There are plenty of ways to make your backyard the perfect place for year-round entertainment in Texas. In today’s post, we’ll provide some tips to help you create a backyard oasis like never before. When you’re ready to get started, the New Horizons team has the experience to help create a beautiful backyard that’s perfect for entertaining.

Outdoor Kitchen

Nothing brings people together quite like food, and when you install an outdoor kitchen in your backyard, it will soon become one of the focal points of your home. Whether you’re grilling burgers for your backyard BBQ or cooking a pizza to perfection in a wood-fired pizza oven, outdoor kitchens create plenty of lasting memories. Our team at New Horizons Landscape Management can help you design and install the perfect outdoor kitchen.

Play Areas

What’s a great backyard without plenty of space for the kids to play? If you’re considering a backyard redesign, it’s crucial to consider areas of the yard you want to use for activities. From jungle gyms and swing sets to basketball courts and soccer fields, there are plenty of activities you can prioritize for you and your children.

Irrigation System

Of course, many of those play areas will be absolute without an adequate irrigation system. Not only does installing a sprinkler system create lush, welcoming grass that kids can play in, it also helps produce a beautiful yard fit for entertainment of all types. Here at New Horizons Landscape Management, we can help with both irrigation installation and irrigation repair. Our landscaping professionals will help you decide which system is best for your needs so you can begin enjoying your backyard to its fullest potential.

Lighting

Proper backyard lighting can do wonders for the entire area, and there are plenty of lighting options to consider. Stringing mood lighting across a patio makes for a cozy, comfortable area that can be enjoyed deep into the warm Texas evenings. Accent lighting along pathways is also a great way to improve the look and feel of your yard, while wall or fence lighting can extend the time for summer night activities.

Landscaping

Whether you realize it or not, proper landscaping is crucial when creating an environment for entertaining. In addition to the aesthetics of beautiful landscaping, it also brings with it plenty of functionality. Proper use of trees and healthy grass can help you stay cool during warm summer months and create more areas to entertain in your yard. Installing flower beds helps prevent erosion while creating beautiful layers to showcase your flowers and other plants. Our professional landscapers know the ins and outs of proper landscaping techniques in Texas and can help ensure your yard is beautiful and functional at the same time.

Hardscaping

As opposed to the natural composition of landscape, hardscape areas use brick, concrete, and other “hard” materials to help create beautiful spaces for entertainment. In addition to the aforementioned outdoor kitchen, hardscaping can include patios, walkways, and retaining walls. One of the most popular hardscape elements to consider is an outdoor firepit. We can help you choose the most beautiful pieces of stone to design and build a firepit that folks of all ages will love.
