Building Beautiful Backyards: Landscaping Design Trends


If creating a beautiful backyard haven for relaxing, entertaining and recreation is an important goal for you, Humboldt Redwood can help you realize your dreams.  The process of gathering ideas, planning and building can be challenging, but some basic know-how can turn it into a very rewarding experience.

In the planning stages, keep in mind that landscaping design trends are moving back to simple, elegant and environmentally friendly, rather than expensive and showy.  High-maintenance lawns are being replaced by native, drought-tolerant shrubbery and ground cover. Small water features, functional fire pits, as well as patio gardens cascading from redwood planters are all elements of the latest aesthetically pleasing, “green living” backyard designs.

Above all, remember that your backyard space should be a reflection of your personal style and an extension of your living space.  Decide what activities your family would like to enjoy outside and incorporate these ideas into your deck, fencing, furniture or garden-structure design.

Whatever your do-it-yourself project, it can go smoothly and be a source of satisfaction and pride if you have the ideal building material.  Humboldt Redwood is a naturally beautiful, durable and easy to work with building material that produces superior results for all types of backyard landscaping needs. It’s easy to saw, drill and nail; while at the same time exceptionally strong and resistant to decay.

You can be confident that you are making an environmentally friendly choice as well with Humboldt Redwood: it’s harvested from sustainably managed forests that are grown in accordance with the strict standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
