Beautifying a backyard space with colour and comfort can be easily achieved with a little effort, and the vast array of items designed for outdoor enjoyment guarantees something for everyone's budget.

Colourful Shrubs

Planting bunches of red twig dogwood will provide a punch of red during the winter and nice hedges during the warmer months. According to Ken Brown, editor of YouCanLearnSeries.com, with a little care, the perennial plant will return year after year.

Water Features

Water features not only add a visual centrepiece to a backyard, but a refreshing bubbling sound as well. Fountains come in an array of shapes and sizes, and range from a couple hundred dollars to very expensive custom installations.

Patio Furniture

Consider investing in comfortable and beautiful seating for outdoor entertainment. Teak patio furniture offers the benefits of being durable, cost effective easily maintained and long lasting.

Green Lawn

Installing a uniform lawn will provide the carpet-like look many homeowners want. According to backyardlivingmagazine.com, installing rolls of sod will give you an instant lawn, but planting seeds is ultimately less expensive.

Warning

Although flowers add a lot of colour to a yard, according to aspca.org, some of them are very toxic and hazardous to animals. Lilies, for example, contain a poisonous ingredient that could cause kidney damage in cats.
