We’re calling this a backyard makeover, but it’s really a lot more than that. It’s more of a backyard design extravaganza. And best of all, everything you see here is low maintenance, and uses very little water. That makes these backyard ideas particularly good for anyone who lives in the desert or is dealing with drought conditions… or who just wants to spend less time caring for the yard and more time enjoying it.
This low maintenance backyard is part of our Patio Style Challenge series here on The Home Depot Blog, but we had something special in mind. We wanted to see what Caitlin Ketcham of Desert Domicile could do with an entire backyard, so we upped the stakes. We challenged Caitlin to create a dream backyard, and we’d make it happen. Her backyard design ideas and drought landscaping includes plenty of outdoor seating, an outdoor dining area, a grilling station,a floating deck and even a luxurious carpet of artificial grass.
All we can say is wow! Caitlin’s backyard is full of terrific outdoor ideas that are practical and very stylish, and they require little upkeep. We got her to write up some tutorials, too, for the several DIY projects you see in her backyard.
