Benefits of Sprucing Up Your Flagstone Patio

Having a flagstone patio is great because it creates a natural atmosphere in your backyard. To spruce up your yard even more, think about planting flowers and other ground cover around your flagstone patio to create a beautiful garden throughout your yard. If you have a flagstone patio, but you don’t have anything to brighten up your yard, start planning a landscape design that will surround your flagstone patio for the next season.

Add Ground Cover

Adding ground cover into the mix of plants and flowers around your patio will help fill up the space. It creates a contrast between the colorful flowers as well. At Cold Stream Farm, we can provide you our Bearberry ground cover, which will be a great addition to your landscape.

Trees will give your patio an oasis in your backyard. It will give you a natural feel to your property, so you can enjoy nature and wildlife without having to leave your home. Many people plant smaller trees because the patio may be close to the house. This is what you should do in order to avoid any problems in the future caused by severe storms. If you have large trees near the home, a severe storm could cause damages to the trees and even your home. Here are some different types of trees and shrubs you can choose from.
