Simple and Affordable Backyard Ideas

Backyards have become a true extension of the home. When a backyard is effectively landscaped, it provides additional outdoor living space where you can spend time with family and friends, becoming a place of recreation as well as relaxation. There are many amenities that used to be just for the indoors (such as fireplaces and kitchens) which are now finding their way into the backyard as an addition or feature to the current decorations.

Do you have a backyard you aren’t sure how to display? Get some inspirational ideas below from popular first home builder in Western Australia – Aussie Living Homes.

Add a pergola with paved flooring and a back bench. Complete with surrounding synthetic turf.

Pergolas come in all shapes and sizes. With that being said, you don’t have to get a big one. Here, a small pergola gives just enough shade (while still allowing some sunlight through) over the outdoor bench.


Golf enthusiast? If you have the backyard space to spare – what’s stopping you from turning it into your own private golf sanctuary?


With careful planning, thoughtful design and quality construction, your backyard living space can become a multi-purpose area for relaxing, entertaining and playing. In addition, a custom backyard landscaping design may add to the monetary value of your home. So, in summary, when tackling a backyard landscaping project, always start with a plan in mind first, that way you get the job done as efficiently as possible.
