What’s Your Backyard Personality?

Have you ever walked into a room and you’re immediately overcome with a particular feeling? We’ve all experienced it at one time or another, but what causes this instantaneous change in how you feel? Your surroundings are usually the number one influencer as to how you feel at any given moment.


Similarly, your outdoor environments have the same effect on you. Which begs the question –  what type of outdoor environment will best compliment you? In order to answer that question, you first should determine your backyard personality.


We categorize backyard personalities into three primary groups: lively, relaxed or social. Many individuals already have an indication as to what kind of backyard will benefit them the most. In fact, in a recent survey we discovered that 32 percent want a backyard that allows them to be social, whereas 68 percent want a backyard that relaxes them. With the right landscape architect, your backyard really can bring out the best in you! So, which one are you?


Stayin’ Alive

For the lively bunch, their surroundings require an energetic and active feel. Being able to utilize the space for outdoor activities is a primary factor in this backyard personality. These landscapes will typically include plant life that can withstand a higher frequency of contact and activity. In addition, lively backyards must include an outdoor activity feature, such as a swing set or a swimming pool.


“We see that families in particular really enjoy landscapes that incorporate the ‘play’ factor so they can frequently enjoy outdoor activities right in their own backyard, while remaining visually and aesthetically appealing,” says Marc Funderburk, president of LandPatterns.

But maybe this sounds too overwhelming for you? That could mean you require a backyard where you go to disconnect and unravel from the rest of the world.


Relax, Don’t Do It

Many individuals simply want a place where they can enjoy peace and relaxation. Backyards are not just an addition to your home, they are a place where many individuals go to unwind and reflect. With the proper plant life and knowledgeable design architect, any backyard can be transformed into a Zen garden.


If the first thing you want to do when you come home from a long day at work is to immerse yourself into a calming space, then you are in need of a tranquil outdoor environment. Marc mentions “the proper combination of outdoor elements can be extremely healing and restorative for an individual. Forget therapy, just step out back and that’s the only remedy you’ll need.” Let us show you how therapeutic your backyard can really be!


Perhaps peace and quiet isn’t quite what you have in mind. The next backyard personality really is the life of the party!
