One way that you can transform your verandah into a stunning feature which can link your internal living space with the great outdoors, is through landscaping. Stay with me a moment, it sounds strange but landscaping your verandah can add some stunning flowers and greenery to your home, which is especially handy if you don’t have a large space for a garden. Before you tackle landscaping your verandahs in Adelaide, here are some great tips to help you get the most out of landscaping your verandah for your home.
Ask yourself, what do your use your verandah for?
This is an important question to consider when landscaping verandahs in Adelaide. If you have little space, you might want to plant flower cuttings, herbs, or fruits and vegetables. If you have a larger area you can turn it into a great space for entertaining. Once you have decided what the space is for, you can start landscaping appropriately.
How does your verandah look?
If your verandah is looking worn and tired, this is a good opportunity to use landscaping as an inexpensive and beautiful way to adorn shabby-looking Adelaide Verandahs. Landscaping can not only beautify your verandah, it can separate entertaining areas, create a seating area, help to create a cool area to relax in, or add much needed privacy. These are all things you should keep in mind when you are looking to landscape your verandah.
When it comes to landscaping a verandah, it’s not just about adding plants, it’s about setting up a specific design for how you will use your verandah. However, adding plants is a wonderful and inexpensive way to landscape verandahs in Adelaide. If your verandah is fully roofed, then you will need to choose plants that need little sunlight or watering. If you have a clear plastic or glass roof, you have a wider variety of plants to choose from. You can also use the balustrading to add vines, or hang flowerpots. If your verandah is low to the ground, you can plant flowers and shrubs in the ground to frame your verandah.
The Finishing Touches
Once the design is done, and the greenery has been added, you can add the finishing touches. When placing tables and chairs or a BBQ on your verandah, ensure that these do not obstruct any entrance ways onto the verandah. Try placing these in different areas to give you the best views or the best look for your verandah. You can also add some decorative wall hangings, pots, wind chimes, or any other pieces that suit the style and decor of your home.
And there you go, that’s how you landscape a verandah. If you are interested in learning more about professionally built verandahs in Adelaide, please call Pergolarific on 8391 0419, or visit Pergolarific.com.au.
