You decided to invest in an ornamental pond for your backyard. Some multi-colored koi caught your attention at the garden center you visited last week, and now you want to add these graceful creatures to your water garden. You only need to decide what aquatic plants you’re going to add to your new pond to provide shelter for your koi and work as a natural filtration system.
While rain gardens are primarily functional by directing water down deep into the soil to avoid ponding on your Hampton Roads, VA property, they’re hardly boring. Depending on the type of rain garden installed in your backyard, you can add a wide variety of water-loving plants to add interest to your landscapes as well as attract diversified wildlife.
Right now, the Tidewater region is in the midst of hurricane season with only three months until winter with its share of ice storms. And that means continual water drainage problems for you. While you love living in Hampton Roads, you know the high water table causes significant property issues. There’s not a lot of room for water to drain when we get a hurricane or the typical thunderstorm.
If you like whimsy and unique, then you want to hunt through flea markets and antique shops for some fun finds for your outdoor living spaces.
You’ve decided that you want to add hardscapes to your backyard. How about adding a deck, patio or deck/patio combination to your Virginia Beach outdoor space?
Does your Hampton Roads, VA backyard consist of just a lawn and a patio slab that came with the home? It’s time, then, to convert your yard into an outdoor destination. How do you transform your boring yard into an outside oasis you call home? By adding hardscapes, of course!
