Must Haves When Landscaping Your Backyard
Mar 3, 2023

Should I Hire a Professional?

When you decide to start on a landscaping project for your property you will probably find yourself wondering whether it’s worth trying to save some money and do things yourself, or hire a professional to complete the work for you. The right answer for you and your backyard will depend on the type and level of landscape you intend to do. If you are just looking for a quick tidy-up and some additional greenery, then it may be possible to do it yourself. If, however, you have bigger ambitions for your landscaping, such as adding a swimming pool, then it’s a job for a professional.

Landscaping Must-Haves

Easy Planting

Adding some flowers and greenery to your backyard is a wonderful way to add an extra dimension to your space. Not everybody loves gardening, though, so planning what flowers and greenery you use are important to keep life easy. Easy care flowers such as Black-eyed Susans and Montauk daisies will add some colour throughout the year without requiring a green thumb. When it comes to shrubbery and greenery, focus on native plants as they will require the least amount of care and attention.

Barbecue Area

A barbecue or cooking space is the perfect complement to other backyard features, making it an absolute must-have. A simple barbecue grill will do the job, but if you love entertaining and hosting on a big scale, an outdoor kitchen space will be a fantastic addition to your backyard.

Swimming Pool

A fibreglass swimming pool is a great addition to any backyard. A swimming pool offers a beautiful and versatile space in your backyard to relax, exercise, and entertain. When thinking about landscaping, a swimming pool is the perfect central feature for your backyard. A fibreglass swimming pool from Narellan Pools will not only be built to the highest quality standards, but it will also be a reflection of your personality and taste – meaning you’ll have a pool that perfectly aligns with your vision and backyard.


A place to be able to sit, whether it’s to have a meal outside or just to unwind, is a vital part of a backyard. Seating doesn’t have to be extravagant, expensive, or complex; a simple seating space is all that is required, but it is a must-have all the same. Of course, if you want you can go all out with a seating area including outdoor sofas and recliners to accommodate all kinds of relaxation.


Maintaining some privacy in your backyard is important. It’s great when you get along with your neighbours, but even when on the best of terms, having a private space to relax and unwind is essential. Privacy can be easily created with either fencing or choice placement of shrubbery and trees.
