When you come home from a long day at work, one of the nicest things for you to have at your house is a backyard that has “ambiance” – a backyard that invites you to escape inside it and relax away the evening! And even though it might seem like it takes a lot of “work” to create such a backyard, you can actually lower the “work to pleasure” ratio until it reaches a point where it is well worth your time!
Before you will be able to create a backyard that has ambiance, the first thing you will need to do is figure out exactly what sort of ambiance you want your backyard to have. This will be a very important component in the planning process, as some people tend to feel relaxed when they are able to relax in a backyard that is open, while others might prefer a backyard that is closed-in; some people might want a backyard that is lush with greenery, while others might want one that is comprised of rocks and fountains!
Once you have figured out exactly what will make you feel relaxed in your backyard at the end of a long day, you should start to do a bit of research, collecting two or three different books on the subject of landscaping to help you figure out how to get the result you want.
With your books in hand and your idea in place, the best way to actually set up the yard is to pick one day (or two days) out of the week on which you will work on the yard; this will keep the task from becoming overwhelming, as you will be able to enjoy the gradual growth of the ambiance in your backyard without having to get worn out in the process.

If you follow these steps, it will be easy for you to set up your backyard in such a way that it feels like a “haven” – a place you can escape into at the end of the day to relax away the evening!
