Making the Most of Your Backyard


Now that you have found your perfect lot to call home at Alira, it is time to start planning how you can make the most of your backyard space. As an area of that home that can be easily overlooked in the building process, a well-thought-out backyard can provide you with another entertaining area for those family get-togethers or your very own veggie patch to feed your hungry little ones.

To help get you started with the planning process, we have put together a few key things that you can consider.

Bring Indoor Living Outdoors

Creating a seamless connection between the inside and outside of your home, not only allows for a clever use of space but provides you with one continuous, clean view of your garden from the indoors, making your home feel much more spacious. Adding outdoor seating for entertaining in the warmer months is the perfect addition to any landscaped garden and in the winter months, a portable gas heater can help to keep you and your family nice and warm to ensure you are making the most of your space all year round.

Look Up with a Vertical Garden

Speaking of a veggie patch, why not look at including a vertical garden? Not only are they easy to maintain and can help keep the weekly produce shop down, but they have the added advantage of making your bare fence or wall look lush. There are plenty of ready-made options available, or you can have them expertly designed to fit your exact space and requirements.

Low Maintenance, but Big Impact

If you don’t consider yourself a green thumb, there are plenty of low maintenance options available that can make your backyard look like an oasis. Consider your location, seasonality and lifestyle as all these factors will help to ensure you are choosing the right type of design and plants to ensure your garden thrives.

Incorporating native flora into your garden design can be a great option as they generally only require a little water before ‘nature takes over’ as many of Australia’s native grasses and flowers are tolerant to wind, frost, drought and flood. Some of the biodiversity local to Alira includes Black Wattle, Coast Banksia, Sweet Bursaria and Austral Indigo to name a few.
