Landscape Design Ideas for the Ultimate Outdoor Inspiration
By Axis Fuksman-Kumpa • December 12, 2022
When considering a yard renovation or update, one of the first steps is thinking about your goals and inspiration. Many people come to Tilly and know their backyard layout could be more functional, their house could have nicer curb appeal, their garden beds could wow-more, or their old patio can't last much longer, they would like an updated design with drought tolerant plantings... But the next question is, what to do about it?
This is the fun part- dreaming about your new space! Whether it's looking at landscaping in your town on a walk or browsing Pinterest or Instagram - getting ideas of what you generally like and don't like is helpful.
This includes thinking about colors you like in a design, types of flowers you like and the overall look and feel of landscaping.
Understanding your basic garden style is a great first step and then it's time to think about who uses your space, how you use your space and your goals.
Budget is always another important factor that should be layered on top of your goals and priority.
To help inspire you, we've pulled together a long list of backyard and front yard landscape plans we love. There are ideas for every size property, garden style and budget. And if you don't see what you're looking for, check out our Instagram for more ideas!

Tilly’s easy online landscape design process has been embraced by homeowners across the country and in Canada. Tilly designs front yards, backyard or your entire property. Our planting plans include hardscape layout (decks, patios, walkways) and softscape layout (plants and trees!).
We match you with a professional landscape designer who is familiar with your region.
To start our process you’ll fill out a questionnaire about your property that helps our design team understand your goals, needs and existing landscape. This covers everything from the unique needs of your yard, your design style (modern? cottage? low maintenance?) and much more.
You can add 3d renders, lighting plans or side yards to your design package. You’ll then connect with your designer on a video call to meet them, show them your space and talk about your priorities.
When you receive your design you will be able to purchase your plants at a discounted rate through our team of plant experts and have them delivered directly to your curb. Tilly can also provide recommendations of local installers who can help you complete your landscape project.
We can’t wait to help you tackle your next yard project!
