A plain and boring backyard is sad and unappealing. Your lawn could be well-kept, mainly because you utilize organic lawn care with WeedPro, your Alpharetta lawn care service, but still have a boring backyard. A well-kept lawn looks great, but some people prefer their lawns to have a little-added pizzazz. They desire the landscaping, but would prefer to do it themselves.

This is fine, we applaud any homeowner who takes it upon themselves to show off their creativity and enthusiasm through landscaping. Just know we are here to help. Which is why we are going to offer you a few creative ideas for your landscaping project.

Add Some Large Rocks

A great creative idea for backyard landscaping is the addition of large rocks. Not only to large rocks add to the aesthetics, they stay put year after year and you really don’t have to worry too much about them. They are a very low-maintenance addition to your lawn. You don’t have to water them, you can’t kill them and they never have to be mowed or trimmed, they are the perfect backyard addition.

Stackable Stones or Pavers

Another way to spruce up your yard and add an element of interest is by simply layering stackable stones and filling in behind it with dirt and plants for a slight change in elevation. In addition, you can use stackable stones or pavers to create a walkway, sitting area in the middle of your lawn or even an enclosed garden bed.

This might take a bit of work on your part, you might even work up a sweat transporting heavy stones, but the outcome is well worth the effort. These changes you make are permanent until you decide to move them and are low in maintenance.

Large Pots

Large pots that you fill with flowers or other plants are a great way to add color and design to your backyard, patio or porch. Large pots can be found in most home improvement stores and can be made from plastic and relatively inexpensive or you can choose other material at a higher cost. They come in a huge array of colors, styles and designs as well.

Outdoor Furniture

There are many options to choose when it comes to style, materials and cost of patio furniture. But a good place to start is just what type of look you desire. You may want to carry an existing indoor theme outside or perhaps you wish to create your own unique outdoor space.

Outdoor furniture can be as simple as adding a few plastic chairs and table to going all out and adding wicker couches, love seats and huge table all under an enormous umbrella. That is, you can go simple and opt for a three or four-piece outdoor set or go crazy with the 16-piece outdoor set.

Solar Lights

Solar lights are inexpensive, easy to install and will give your outdoor space a fresh look. In addition, solar lights add an element of safety as they light up walkways at night and may reduce the chances someone breaks into your house. Solar lights also come in many styles and designs.

Rain Barrels

Rain barrels add a nice touch to your backyard and can help you conserve water.

Get Your Zen On

Build a stone path through Japanese maples and plum trees and call it your path to tranquility. The destination is your garden of Zen with tropical-style plants, a Buddha statue and water garden complete with floating lilies. A nice addition would be a bamboo spigot that feeds water into the water garden.


Who doesn’t love the beauty of a fountain? Whether you position it in a pond or have a stand-alone on your deck or patio, a fountain is a tranquil compliment to any outdoor space. Your fountain not only looks wonderful, it provides relaxation and serves as a distraction from outside noises including loud neighbors and traffic.

Planter Boxes

Planter boxes add to the look of your backyard and hide plant containers. And are ideal if you want to swap out flowers as the seasons change.

As you can see, there are many things you can do to enhance the beauty of your outdoor space. For exceptional lawn care, give WeedPro a call.
