Back Yard Landscaping Design

Life is moving outdoors. Many people are starting to upgrade their outdoor living spaces rather than move to a larger home and for good reason. In the rush of everyday life, having a quiet piece of paradise in your backyard provides much needed relaxation.

Promasterscape specializes in delivering great backyard landscaping and design services in Toronto, Markham, Stouffville, Northyork, Richmond hill, Aurora, and King city. Our team of experts create gorgeous backyards tailored exactly to your lifestyle.

Backyard Landscaping Ideas:

It can be hard to think of a good backyard landscape design that looks good, fits your budget, and is exactly what you need it to be. That’s why we came up with a quick list of questions to help you form ideas.

  1. How much time do I have for taking care of the backyard garden?

  2. What style would I like? Modern, traditional, maybe even Japanese?

  3. How big of a budget can I commit to this backyard landscaping project?

Once you finish answering these questions, you’ll have a solid idea of what kind of landscape design you want for your backyard.

A good backyard landscape design will give you enough outdoor living space to suit your lifestyle. Promasterscape guides you through the planning process and keeps you updated. This way, we bring you quality results that match your expectations.

We always start out projects with a plan and invite you to go over them with us.

1. Finding the perfect patio size:


Whenever we have a backyard landscaping design project in GTA, we meticulously measure the area we have to work with. Measuring ensures we get it right the first time, giving you just the right patio size for hangouts while still leaving space for a lovely garden.


2. Gardening and landscaping 

No yard is complete without plants. Greenery makes a space visually and physically cooler, making a yard even more relaxing to be in. We always ask our Toronto-based clients about how much time they have for gardening and how much effort they’re willing to put into it.


Typically, we plant low maintenance bushes and trees. Promasterscape believes a yard can be beautiful without being time consuming for our clients.

3. Picking out pavers:

Promasterscape uses only the highest quality paving materials to make sure each walkway, driveway, and patio we build will last the seasons. Durable paving materials are the foundation of a good backyard landscape design. Patio pavers should be functional and attractive since patios are your outdoor living room.


Different kinds of pavers suit different needs. Some pavers are eco-friendly, others are more affordable. Maybe you would want a slip-resistant patio material for a pool. The options are endless but Promasterscape is here to guide you every step of the way.

When installing a new patio or resurfacing an existing one, you will have many paving materials to choose from. The most popular patio materials include concrete, flagstone, pavers and brick.

Choose the right materials will ensure your investment holding up over years.

4. Patio Placement Guidelines:


Most people believe that a patio should be placed right off the back of a house. While this works in some cases, there are a number of other things to consider when determining the proper placement for a new patio.

  • Purpose of the patio

  • Proximity to the home

  • Available space

  • Sun and shade

  • Views

The most important thing to consider when locating a patio is function. Your patio should be placed in a spot that lends itself to what you want to use it for. For example, if you would like to use your patio for sunbathing, then you should select the sunniest spot in your yard.

5. Patio Placement Tips:

  1. Break up large patios to create multiple outdoor rooms. This will accommodate people's natural tendency to split into smaller groups.

  2. Place a small patio further out in the yard to create a destination. This patio can take advantage of views or provide a private retreat. Destination patios are a great place for a pair of chaise lounges or an outdoor conversation set.

  3. A cooking or dining patio should be located close to the house for convenience. You don't want to be carrying food a long ways from the indoor kitchen.
