In as much as it can be difficult to create a natural landscape, it is not impossible. There are so many possibilities if you decide to design and create your natural landscape. Here are some ideas you can incorporate.
Design a wildflower garden
For a natural look, invest in a wildflower garden. A little tip for it to look more like a garden, incorporate some flowers that are not wild and some native plants, and with a few artwork or accessories, your garden will come together.
Use natural lawn dividers
While you cannot bring natural landforms to your yard, natural material can be used to create a divider in your lawns. This is a great way to mimic the natural landscape. Other options may include trees, bushes and rocks, the good thing with rocks is that you can shape them into any shape and it is easy to maintain.
Preserve wildlife inhabitants in your yard
You can make your yard livable for certain kinds of insects, birds, and other animals like rabbits that may be frequent in your yard. You can also attract them by incorporating things they might like such as setting bird feeders in the trees around your yard.
Include a water feature
A water feature will definitely mimic the natural water bodies. You can stick to what’s more natural like ponds or a stream will do. You can always complement these water features by adding rocks to make it more natural and appealing.
For a more dramatic look, try a waterfall with boulders and rocks. This would look like a natural waterfall coming from a major landform.
Mix up your plants
Incorporating a variety of species of plants makes your landscape look more natural. You can use different sizes, colors, and types of plants that will not make the landscape look planned.
Install a rain garden
A rain garden is beautiful. It also performs a great ecological benefit to your landscape. It is inexpensive to build as it only allows your garden to hold water for a short period of time.
Natural landscaping will ensure that the surrounding environment benefits too. If you are interested in any landscaping services in Thousand Oaks, reach out to Cat in a Hammock for more information and quality services.
