Summer Landscape Ideas for Your Backyard in Detroit, MI


If you feel like it’s time to refresh the look of your Detroit, MI, backyard, but don’t want to get involved in major renovations, there is an easier way to transform your backyard. Unilock pavers and wall units will help you revitalize the appearance of your landscape for the coming outdoor season. Here are some summer landscape ideas to inspire you:


Add a Pool-Integrated Water Feature

If you have a pool, why not add a striking waterfall feature to complement the pool area, and enjoy the tranquil sounds of cascading water. Choose the versatility of Brussels Dimensional System and enhance the look of your backyard. Brussels Dimensional System is a simple but elegant wall unit that can be used to build either straight or curved walls to run alongside your pool edge. This structure can then form the base for a water feature that will flow directly into your pool.

Redefine Your Backyard with a New Pool Patio

Your patio and pool deck flooring forms the foundation of your entire backyard design. If you think the look of your patio doesn’t match the summery aesthetic that you’re going for, why not try the resort-like character of Umbriano pavers in Summer Wheat. This paver offers a natural-looking, mottled surface with the feel of natural granite. Umbriano’s non-slip, stain-resistant surface is ideal for poolside patios and family-oriented outdoor spaces.


Create Stunning Islands

A dining area is more than just a table placed in the corner of your backyard. It’s a spot for family gatherings and intimate evening get-togethers. With Unilock products, you can easily incorporate sophisticated details to make your outdoor dining area exceptional. Adding a multi-functional island to your outdoor entertainment area, where you can serve food or drinks, will add visual interest and transform the area into a more practical space. Lineo Dimensional Stone is ideal for this sort of project, and will define your landscape with its sleek lines and minimalist look. To complement more traditional landscapes, choose the look of natural flagstone with Rivercrest Wall, in the shades of Buff or Coastal Slate.


Add a Fire Pit or Fireplace

Even though the winter is behind us, summer nights can get chilly enough to make the warmth of a fire pit or fireplace a welcome addition to your patio. Regardless of whether you are looking for materials to suit a modern residence or traditional landscape, Estate Wall will add a pleasing touch to your home. Incorporate the look of natural ledge rock and add a regal touch to your backyard with Estate Wall in the shades of Sierra or Sandstone.


Add Borders and Accents

One of the best ways to highlight the focal points of your backyard is with the use of borders and accents. Richcliff pavers in the shades of Pebble Taupe or Dawn Mist will impress with their modern and elegant surface textures, cast from hundreds of natural stone surfaces. Add to this the rich, warm colors and timeworn finish of Copthorne pavers, and you have a winning combination for highlighting focal features, defining distinct outdoor areas and complementing the aesthetic of your home.
