Your backyard can do tons of great things for your home, but one of its most important jobs is impressing your guests when they come to visit. The specific features you have in your yard will be a big part of what helps your guests to feel impressed with the home you have put together. Every home and family has specific needs for their yard, but here are a few elements that are sure to impress your guests, no matter what you and your family enjoy.
Adding a water feature to your yard can immediately
make it more inviting and impressive. Many people choose to have a fountain or koi pond as the water feature for their backyard space. You can also create a stream that runs around your yard or a waterfall that creates lovely sound and views. You can even create a backyard pool that gives you a cool place to spend time during the summer months. Whatever water feature you choose, you can use it to create an amazing impression.
An Outdoor Kitchen
If you like to entertain, having an outdoor kitchen can be impressive and useful for you on a regular basis. You can stock your kitchen and ensure that it has all the appliances you need to accomplish your entertaining goals. It’s
important to cover your outdoor kitchen
to protect it from water, dust and other elements. Your outdoor kitchen can extend your entertaining space and make your backyard even more special.
The plant life you have in your backyard is always going to make your space more impressive to the guests who visit. A beautiful big vegetable garden can be a good starting point that will make your yard impressive,
give you something to talk about with your guests
, and provide food to enjoy together. Additionally, flowers and vines can also help you to create a beautiful and impressive space in your backyard. It is important that you think about how all the landscaping fits together to create a beautiful impression for everyone who comes by. Your landscaping can be the key to a great yard that looks incredible.
Your backyard can be a real centerpiece for your home if you take the time to design it appropriately. Every element you add should come together to create a cohesive, beautiful, and inviting space. That way, you and your guests can enjoy your yard and spend hours there in good weather.

H&H Home Builders have constructed Energy Star Compliant homes since we burst onto the building landscape in 1995 as ‘North Liberty’s Premier Builder’.

H&H Home Builders will build you what is known today as a ‘green’ home, but what has always been lesser known as a ‘sustainable’ home. Sustainable homes are quality built so that they last not just decades, but are built to maintain value, encouraging pride of ownership for generations to come. An H&H ‘green’ Home uses raw materials in a responsible way, using fewer resources, resulting in the use of less energy.
