Backyard Landscape Design

Often, the backyard is where it all happens: relaxing, entertaining, recreation and play, gathering around fire and water features, and growing vegetables, herbs, and flowers.

Tell us what you want, and our creative landscape design experts will give you their best ideas for solving your design challenges and turning your backyard into your ideal retreat.

If you want a personalized landscaping design for your backyard (up to 60% of your property), our Partial Property Design service is for you!

Get started by using our easy online workbook to describe your ideal backyard landscape, or just tell us what you like and don’t like about your existing yard. In only a few weeks, Home Outside’s expert landscape planners will deliver a beautiful, creative, and practical backyard landscape design that you can give to a contractor or build yourself.

Our Partial Property Design shows you the layout for pathways, walls, hardscaping, water features, tree and shrub locations, planting beds, and more. It includes general planting suggestions such as “ornamental flowering shrub” or “evergreen ground cover” (does not list specific varieties and quantities of plants).

Let our experienced designers show you where to place all the pieces for a landscape you’ll love!
