How To Design A Yard That Will Survive All Seasons

Summary: These helpful tips will allow you to have an easy to maintain yard in all four seasons of the year.

Maintaining a yard in a city that goes through weather extremes can be an increasingly difficult task. Wind, rain and heat can all affect your plants and outdoor furniture in harmful ways. These tips will allow you to have a beautiful yard all year long.

Use Artificial Turf On Your Lawn

Grass can be tricky to upkeep. You need to water it often, but not too often. It needs sunlight, but not too much. You can walk on it, kids can play, and animals can do their business, but all of these things need to be in moderation, or the maintenance level increases. Using artificial turf can eliminate all these issues. It does not need to be watered, sunlight does not harm it, kids can run around without getting muddy, and most come with draining systems to carry away water from rain and animals.

Get Durable Furniture

Most outdoor furniture is either durable or attractive. It can be difficult to find any that is both. Durability may be more important if you live in areas with extreme weather, unless you buy seasonal furniture and have the space to store the rest throughout the year. Materials like wicker can withstand the changing seasons. And make sure to always bring in the cushions when it rains, or at least cover them with a tarp.

Living in a city that gets all four seasons in their extremes makes it hard to enjoy a yard, especially in the colder months. But if you choose the right things to build your yard with, you will certainly be able to enjoy the yard in the sunshine, and will not have to worry about it when it rains.
