How Redoing Your Garden Can Be a Perfect Complement to Your Remodel

How Redoing Your Garden Can Be a Perfect Complement to Your Remodel
  • Opening Intro -

    If you are remodeling your home, this is the perfect time to redo your garden as well.


While ideas are fresh in mind from updating the interior of your home, expand your creativity to the outdoor garden so that the entire property flows seamlessly and harmoniously in tandem to the delight of residents and guests.

Coordinate Building Materials

While you don’t necessarily want to use brick and mortar (though a brick path can be lovely) in your outdoor garden, you can consider using some of the same materials that were utilized indoors.

For example, wooden steps inside can be modified for outside use to create a garden path. You could extend an exterior wall to make a small garden space.

If you have an existing cement sidewalk or pavement that frames the renovated house, you could hire a concrete lifting company to smooth any upheavals or uneven places if you want to retain the pavement that is in otherwise good condition as part of your garden do-over.

You can also use materials like brick or sandstone as accent pavers for your garden space.

Choose Similar Designs

If your home has been remodeled in a retro theme, pick similar designs for the garden. For example, choose popular colors and garden décor from the style on which the home update was modeled. Rustic décor using lanterns and old fashioned fireplace utensils can be carried into the garden in the form of wood fence posts and vintage birdhouses.

Homes that are decorated with animal figurines or wildlife photos offer ideas for complementary garden stoneware or lighting that fits with the indoor decorating scheme. While the house and garden do not need to be replicas of each other, you can borrow colors, styles, or decorative accents from your home renovation to give your garden a completely new look.

Keep in mind though that a contrast of styles can also be surprising, amusing, and even beautiful. Putting an abstract sculpture next to your colonial style home or a classical bust in the garden of your modernist dwelling can provide a welcome sense of contrast.

Extend Leisure Space

A well-kept garden is an invitation to enjoy nature. Benches or lawn chairs provide a perfect view of butterflies, bumble bees, and other seasonal creatures. You can expand your patio as part of your house remodel or simply add bigger windows in your backyard.

So that, even if you are staying indoors, you can enjoy the nature around you. Spending time relaxing or nature watching in your newly-remodeled garden can be a source of relaxation, peace, or pure enjoyment as you escape the pressures of everyday life.

Connect a Nature Theme

Renovating your home in neutral colors and using natural light from windows and skylights offer clues to updating your garden in similar imagery. Implant small foot lights that operate on solar energy around your garden’s perimeter. Add a decorative sundial to track time the natural way. You can do much to bond home and garden with a similar nature theme.

other valuable tips:

A beautiful garden provides respite and joy to people everywhere. Having just remodeled your home, you are probably ready to relax and enjoy fresh air outdoors while admiring your newly-updated garden. Your yard is just as much as part of your home as any other part. You should complement the home you work hard to maintain.
