Optimize your outdoor space: our spring guide for a successful landscape design

Get inspired with REALTA and our spring outdoor landscaping guide to make the most of your spaces. Whether you’re looking to design a relaxing corner or a space for outdoor activities, discover our recommendations for creating a harmonious and functional space that meets all your needs.

Small balcony: clever layout ideas

For smaller spaces like condo balconies, it’s crucial to utilize every corner if you want to create an inviting atmosphere. Opt for hanging planters or vertical trellises to incorporate greenery with flowers, herbs, or even fresh vegetables.

Complement this setup with compact balcony furniture, such as a folding table and chairs, ideal for outdoor dining. To make it a cozy and inviting space, add an outdoor rug and colorful cushions. And finally, be sure to protect yourself from the sun by installing a parasol or shade cloth, providing a shady spot to relax and enjoy the outdoors in comfort.

For a shaded landscape: consider planting mature trees

As the warm weather arrives, there’s nothing quite like enjoying a shaded landscape. Did you know that it’s possible to plant mature trees to bring your project to life?

Mature trees not only provide refreshing shade on hot days but also add natural beauty to your landscape. Choose varieties that are well-suited to our climate and to your garden size, such as oaks, maples, or beeches, which provide a dense and long-lasting canopy. In addition to providing shade, large-caliber trees help improve air quality and increase your property value.

A pond: create your own aquatic garden there

If you have a pond but haven’t considered landscaping it, spring presents an ideal opportunity to transform this space into a captivating water garden. By incorporating aquatic plants like water lilies and irises, along with a submersible pump to maintain water clarity, you can create a balanced and visually appealing ecosystem. Additionally, for wildlife enthusiasts, introducing fish such as koi can add a vibrant and unique dimension.

Fire pit & outdoor lighting: create a warm and welcoming atmosphere

As day gives way to night, illuminate and warm your backyard with a touch of elegance. Embrace the allure of hanging lights to create an intimate ambiance on your patio or garden. Environmentally friendly and practical solar lights are also a great alternative for subtly illuminating pathways and relaxation areas, without the need for complex wiring.

Finally, the installation of an outdoor fireplace, whether traditional or gas-powered, provides an ideal spot to gather around a soothing fire with loved ones. Whether you seek romantic moments under the stars or lively gatherings with friends, the artful addition of lights and a fireplace will transform your outdoor space into a sanctuary of relaxation and conviviality, no matter the hour.

Effortless Gardening: Embrace Native Plants

For those yearning for a beautiful garden without the relentless burden of upkeep, incorporating wild plants into your landscaping can be the ideal answer. Native Quebec species offer a wealth of attractive options that demand less effort.

Moreover, these plants exhibit remarkable resilience to local weather conditions. As you delve into the diverse varieties, you may be surprised by their extensive range and hidden benefits, including their culinary and medicinal applications. Embracing this type of vegetation reduces the frequency of watering and minimizes the need for chemical treatments.

If you’re not a fan of regular lawn mowing and hedge trimming, consider eco-friendly groundcovers like white clover or thym.
