Rectangle Backyard design help!
Hi Guys! New to the forum and basically new to landscaping/backyard designing. I am purchasing a new house (fixer upper) and would LOVE some help on the basic design of the backyard. This needs to be as cheap as possible but make it look as nice as possible (of course!). No concrete pouring or any professional, just things I can do myself.
I am thinking of doing edging with mulch on both sides of the yard, but not sure if I should have a second seating area further down the yard? (there is already one when you first enter the backyard). I attached a picture of the backyard along with a rough sketch of what I have.
My plan is to use a dark mulch in those areas and plant various small trees/shrubs so it looks fresh but its less work and looks really clean. I'm just unsure of the design of the edging and how far to come in and how much "wavy" lines I should use in the design.
Any input is appreciated! Thank you.
