Even the winters are pleasant if you enjoy snowmobiling across snow-covered Walworth fields, or ice fishing on Lake Delavan or just cuddling up by the fire to read a book.

Of course, the snow and cold is not something Walworth residents have to worry about right now. Now, it’s summer and water skiing, fishing and hiking are favored outdoor activities. Another great outdoor Walworth activity is to entertain friends and family in your backyard.

For some people, it’s enough to throw some chairs out in the backyard and fire up the grill. But, if someone really wants to make the most of the experience, they’ll probably put a little more thought and effort into the idea. For those people, the place to start is with some landscape design to determine how to best make use of their backyard’s potential.

The first question with landscape design is to determine how you will use the property. If you plan to entertain often, and with larger groups of guests, you’ll want to design your Walworth landscape accordingly. Then again, maybe you look into the backyard and see a sanctuary where you and the family can retreat for some solitude and relaxation.

However you plan to use your landscape, if you take some time to design it properly, you’ll get much more out of your property. This is probably where you want to consider calling in a professional. A landscape designer can really make a difference when you decide to improve your property’s landscape.

Along with helping you consider how you’ll use the property, a landscape designer will also consider factors such as traffic flows, centralized areas where family and friends will gather, what amenities you want to include in your landscape design and how those amenities will best fit your particular piece of property.

What amenities? Glad you asked, because it’s a long list. For instance, you may consider the following as parts of your landscape design:

  • A brick paver patio
  • A fire pit or fireplace
  • A built-in grill or, even, an outdoor kitchen
  • Retaining walls
  • Seating areas
  • Water features
  • Placement of electrical outlets
  • Brick paver walkways
  • Outdoor lighting

This is only a partial list. The point is, there is much you can do with your Walworth landscape and a landscape designer can help you to get the most of your landscape design.
