Shed Landscaping: How to Create the Perfect Backyard Oasis

A shed in your backyard can become much more than extra storage space. A well-planned shed can give you additional living space that can be the focal point of a beautiful backyard oasis. With a little creativity, you can turn an ordinary yard into something extraordinary.

Here are some ways to create your perfect backyard oasis:

Add Outdoor String Lights to Your Backyard

As we all know, the right kind of lighting can make a world of a difference. By incorporating string lights around your backyard and shed, you can transform your yard into a magical retreat. Just picture yourself spending a cozy evening in your bright shed and backyard during a balmy summer night. We guarantee that you won’t want to leave!

Plant Flowers All Around Your Shed and Backyard

Backyards are usually covered with green grass, but you can add some color by planting beautiful flowers that will transform your shed into a charming country cottage. Flowers such as begonias, calendulas, and hollyhocks are low maintenance flowers that turn your space into a backyard oasis. Consider placing flower boxes all along your yard and around your shed and you’ll have a beautiful and bright “cottagecore” look.

Incorporate Cozy Seating Areas Outside Your Shed

You can add square footage to your shed by adding outdoor furniture and a seating area outside your shed. A shaded seating area with a cozy couch, some armchairs, and a coffee table in the middle instantly gives you another place to hang out with your family and friends. Remember to use all-weather furniture, so you don’t have to worry about bringing furniture indoors when the weather is bad.

Build a Deck Outside Your Shed

If you have the time, energy, and resources to spare, building a deck can be a great way to create a beautiful backyard oasis. This instantly upgrades your yard and gives you another living space where you can read a book, take a nap, or spend quality time with your loved ones. You don’t have to be a master builder to build one, there are plans available online that can guide you and help you make one in as little as two weeks.
