Designing your special private place
With many of us spending more time at home, a private spot in your backyard can be a welcoming retreat for working, exercising, or just relaxing. The first step is to consider how you would like to use this space, and then have the professionals at Gerbert & Sons recommend the best solutions to reflect your taste and make your dream become a reality. Perhaps you are looking to move your work-from-home day outside into the invigorating natural sunlight, or wish to exercise, meditate, or just relax in the fresh air and beauty of nature. Regardless of your activity, privacy is a key element in creating your personal retreat, and we have many suggestions to achieve this goal. Take advantage of your property’s existing hedges and shrubs, or add new plantings including fast growing ornamental grasses to create a natural wall of separation. Trellises with vines or other climbing plants, or a vertical garden with flowers and herbs can add that extra wall of privacy, while still allowing sunlight and fresh air to fill your space. Container gardens, hanging plants, and raised planting beds help to define your oasis and, when filled with your favorite varieties, add color and natural fragrances to enhance your experience.
Extra touches to complete your retreat
Once your outdoor space has been created, you can add the finishing touches to make it even more inviting. Be sure to have comfortable furniture, a handy table, and other favorite decorative pieces to add that personal touch. Perhaps a pergola or shade sail can add a cooling respite from the sun, or an outdoor fan to supply a refreshing breeze. To increase the time spent enjoying your new haven, we are happy to recommend custom outdoor lighting options or perhaps a relaxing fire pit to warm those cooler nights with entrancing flames. A perfect final touch of nature could be a small water feature, providing visual interest and soothing background ambiance.
