Hello Backyard world,
Today we have something different. No crafts and artistic stuff. This project is about creating your backyard paradise. The place to spend your time after a tiring day to vanish stress and bad feelings. They say that flowers do this and from my perspective they really do. So what I did is the following:
1. I created a chilling spot to drink my coffee or my cocktail. I took advantage of the trees around to use their shadows during the very sunny days. I decorated the trees around with some candles hanging from them and I created a DIY plant-in-a-book as a link between nature and artificial.
2. I created a more artistic spot using a bench and half a barrel. This spot is meant to provide me with motivation for being creative.
3. I created a more functional spot where I can eat, work etc. I used a wooden table with chairs decorated with cloth, glass and candles. This is meant to be used for parties, bbq night etc.
4. Some extra hints: I planted some climbing plants around the yard to create a natural wall, grass all over the yard, some plants and flowers to give aroma and colour to the yard(ofc I used some mojito plants for my cocktails),white small rocks around the trees and light installation.
Light was the most vital element to create the atmosphere I want. There are 3 options: 1 using the candles which provides a very romantic atmosphere. Then earth-lighting on each tree to emphasize on the natural element and last but not least peripheral lighting to make it really shine.
