Houzz Editor Shares 3 Tips for Upgrading Your Yard
In this episode of Houzz TV Live, editor Annie Thornton discusses a Toronto family’s renovated front yard and backyard, which is a project by Earth and Sole that Thornton recently wrote about for a Patio of the Week. Thornton shares three takeaways from that project that any homeowner can use to create welcoming and relaxing outdoor spaces.
Think about ways you can create interest and invitation for passersby, such as by planting a tree that will one day shade the sidewalk. Consider repurposing rock, pavers or other materials from your house or yard to save money and layer in history. And choose design elements, like a shaded lounge space or vegetable garden, that will reinforce how you want to spend time in your yard.
