Unusual Backyard Design Ideas


A Bohemian design shows in this OKC landscaping client’s backyard.

Previously we tackled landscape ideas in the front yard. Now we’re moving on to the backyard with some design and style ideas to help you design your backyard oasis. One of the most pinned (on Pinterest), broadcast on HGTV, photographed and discussed trends in backyard styles right now is known as a Bohemian backyard. If you are looking for something original, cozy and unique to transform your outdoor living space, maybe Bohemian vibes and their tranquil ambiance are the perfect look for you.

Bohemian style originated in Europe around the early 20th century and is often described as elegant, airy, free, floral and textured. To achieve this distinct look, our expert designers will work closely with you to plan and create artful, unique backyard setups.

With any Bohemian design, lights are vital to set the mood. Red Valley Landscape offers landscape lighting services such as LED lighting, low voltage lighting, outdoor security lighting, custom Holiday lighting and recessed can lighting. However, to achieve the Bohemian look, we suggests utilizing low voltage, incandescent lighting in the backyard.

Fire pits are another great way to achieve a Bohemian style within your backyard while providing warmth and a nice, subtle, glowing source of light. We will often place the fire pit in a spacious area allowing an opportunity for friends and family to enjoy each other’s camaraderie or to gaze up at the stars. We can design custom fire pits with the use of stone, stucco, stained concrete of a wide variety of materials for unique accents and textures.


This Edmond landscaping design features an open pavilion area with fire pits and elegant lighting.

Last, if the Bohemian backyard vibe is the right style for your home, some sort of arbor might be the perfect finishing touch for this design style. Arbors provide shade and a feel of tranquility especially when paired with draped vines. Wisteria, Trumpet Vine and Carolina Jasmine are some of our favorites.
