Welcome to your Dream Yard!

Sharing Summer Inspiration with You!

What's here at Dream Yard? Everything you need to create your very own amazing space. Lots of great DIY landscaping information. We have landscaping articles, detailed how-to modules, a picture ideas gallery, and a passionate team willing to answer any landscaping questions you may have.

If you are not yet familiar with us, Dream Yard is not a one page "step by step site". We are an educational site. We still get you there, but we educate you on "Why" things are done in the process. We want you to be well prepared with any project you undertake.

Planning a new project for the summer? Take a look at our Estimating Materials article and be prepared when you go shopping at your landscaping supply yard.

Flagstone Tips

Laying flagstone seems to be quite a challenge for most do-it-yourselfers, and many people fail to achieve the look that inspired them to build one in the first place.

We developed a 3-part Module to help homeowners complete their projects like a pro.

After reading the introduction, the article is divided into two sections.

  • How to Buy Flagstone covers what you need to know to purchase the right materials for your specific project.
  • How to Install Flagstone will focus on a few "Tricks of the Trade" when working with the stones. We will help you with placement of the stones, as well as some techniques used in working and shaping the stones.

The Value of Landscaping

As long as we have been settling in communities, landscaping has been a part of our lives. It is a way of expressing ourselves, our cultures, and our styles.

It also shows the sense of pride we take in our homes and communities.

Landscaping can provide extensions to your living area with patios, decks and private sitting areas.

For some people, strolling along paths or tinkering in garden beds, provides a therapeutic solitude.

Landscaping can increase the value of your home, or help you sell it by giving more curb appeal.

Whatever your reason for adding a DIY landscape project to your yard, we hope that this site will be a helpful tool in completing your projects and building your dream yard.
