Newnan Landscaping Supply | Simple Ideas for Creating a Private Retreat

Have you always dreamed of coming home from a long day at work to a stunning, private retreat? A place where you can enjoy the outdoors without the hustle and bustle of everyday life? This can be easier to achieve than you might think! Creating a private area around your home doesn’t have to cost tens of thousands of dollars, and it doesn’t have to involve a major overhaul of the landscaping. With just a few simple strategies, you can turn your existing landscape into a relaxing, private retreat for you and your family. Check it out!

Fence It

Installing a privacy fence is one of the pricier options, but you will be able to work with your existing landscaping and you will not only have privacy, but you will also have a safe, enclosed area for your pets and children to play. There are so many different types of fencing that it should be easy to find a style that complements your home and tastes. If you only have a small area that you would like to keep private, you can also consider lattice. Lattice is inexpensive, looks great and you can plant vines or climbing roses around them to create even more interest.

Plant It

Planting shrubs or hedges is another great way to create a sense of privacy in your yard. There are several varieties to choose from – from different colors, heights, shapes – you are sure to find something that you just love to help create that natural privacy on your landscaping. Just make sure if you are part of a homeowner’s association, that you will not be violating any of the rules and guidelines. If you don’t like the idea of using a straight line of hedges for privacy, but would still like a natural look, a raised garden bed could do the trick. By mounding the soil, you can raise your plants another foot or so. Then you can add all the flowers you love to your garden!

Mute It

We hear from a lot of folks who are looking for suggestions on how to drown out the sounds from the environment (traffic, noisy neighbors, etc). One of our favorite ways to do this is by incorporating water features into the landscaping. A water fountain will not only cover up some of those outside noises that are bothersome, but will create a relaxing atmosphere for your private retreat. Our sister company, Earthscape Designs, can help you decide on the perfect water feature for your property and will have it installed in no time!

We hope that these tips will be helpful to you as you plan to create a private retreat! If you need any information on the landscaping supplies that we offer here at Mulch & More – give us a call at (770) 252-0006 or contact us online. We look forward to hearing from you!
