Incorporating wood into a landscape design offers a variety of elements that can be used to accent an outdoor area. Visually appealing privacy screens can be installed to shield your activities from neighbors. Arbors provide a nice accent to an outdoor entry way and can be used for climbing plants. A simple wooden trellis is also a nice way to display plants like clematis to enjoy their full beauty. If you want a quiet place to relax in the backyard or patio, consider installing a wooden swing.
