Shutter Hardware and Landscaping

Your backyard is one of the most versatile and useful parts of your home, and you might not even be aware of it. When you stop and consider what can be done with your backyard, the possibilities are really endless.

At the moment, you might have a love/hate relationship with your yard. You love your yard but wish you could get more out of it. Think about a yard with a fountain or a path through the garden, that would be nice.

Just stop and think about how nice your yard could look if you put forth the effort. Your landscaping ideas could include a koi pond, firepit or built-in smoker.

Here is something to consider; you spend money and time making sure your house looks great. You recently had new shutter installed and followed that up with some great shutter hardware from Lynn Cove. You still find yourself standing outside admiring the great look.

Let’s take that a step further and give your yard a look that matches your home. Here are a few ways in which you can do just that.

Gnome Things Up

Head to your local nursery or flea market and discover some fun, decorative pieces that you can install in your yard. The obvious choices are garden gnomes and gargoyles, but we are sure you can also find some pretty unique pieces out there.

This is an inexpensive and fun way to add some character and charm to your yard.

Sitting Area

You can create a quiet spot in your yard where people can sit and relax by utilizing some paving stones or gravel. Add some flowers or plants, a few chairs and a table and you have a wonderful spot to drink beer or sip tea. You could even grill and have dinner here.

Outdoor Kitchen

You need all of the right equipment if you are going to create masterful dishes in your yard.

There is no need to rush back and forth between the patio and your kitchen when you have all of the cooking equipment you need outside. An outdoor kitchen is more than just a grill and smoker, you will also need a food prep surface, good lighting and a sink. Come to think about it, a pizza oven would be nice as well.

Landscaping Stones

There are a variety of landscaping stones that come in all shapes and sizes. You can utilize these to help make your yard look awesome.

Not only are landscaping stones aesthetically appealing, but they also serve a utilitarian purpose as well. A stone path through the garden looks great and helps keep your shoes from getting muddy.


One easy way to transform the entire look of a yard is with shrubbery. Blooming shrubs make a huge impact all across your yard. So head to your nursery and find some colorful shrubs.

Planters and Baskets

Landscaping should never be one-dimensional. Add layers to your backyard with eye-catching hanging baskets and elevated planters. This brilliant strategy creates a visual effect that gives the impression of waves of flowers rising and falling across your yard.

Rambling Vines

Yet another way you can spruce up your yard is by planting some rambling vines. There is nothing quite as stately and romantic than deep tendrils winding there way around fences and around your shutters. This is an even better idea if you get vines that bloom pretty flowers.


This one is obvious, but your yard will look amazing after you have planted flowers. You can either have a flower garden or fill decorative pots with your favorite flowers. You could also do both if you really enjoy flowers.

Big Rocks

If you have a really big yard and need something to break it up, big rocks are your ticket. You can make a statement by having a great big rock right in the middle of your yard. You could also have several smaller rocks spread out over your yard.

We aren’t talking about rocks that you can move with a wheelbarrow, we are talking about rocks that need to be moved with a truck.

Once you have properly landscaped your yard, you will notice that your home looks even better. Order your shutter hardware and garage door hardware from Lynn Cove.
