Create a Backyard Oasis at Your Delaware Home

Andrew Ogden

Are you excited for summer? So are we! At First Class Lawncare, we're helping homeowners around the city of Wilmington, DE create a backyard oasis where they can relax and enjoy themselves. If you're looking for ideas to create the perfect backyard environment for enjoyment and entertainment, we've got suggestions. Below, we've outlined some of our favorite ideas for enhancing your backyard space while also adding value to your home.


Patios are low-maintenance, attractive, and make entertaining easy. Install a patio where you can lounge in the sun and barbecue with loved ones and friends. You'll want to choose pavers or other materials that will complement your backyard while also serving its function. From brick to river rock and more, there are many different options to choose from for your hardscaping. Our team can help you install your patio so that it drains properly and looks it's absolute best.

Outdoor Fireplaces and Fire Pits

Outdoor Kitchen

Outdoor kitchens are one of the latest trends that brings the indoors outdoors. You'll need a gas line and electrical line to make certain that your backyard kitchen will have lights for night cooking, power for your outdoor refrigerator, and fuel for a stove.

Outdoor kitchens also need a patio area for dining and a covering for cooking and entertaining during those unexpected rain showers. We can help you design an outdoor kitchen based on your wants and needs. Our team can make suggestions and present a few designs for you to consider.

Retaining Wall

Retaining walls make sloped space useful, and add tiers to your property which can make flat spaces more interesting. Many homeowners use retaining walls to create raised garden beds for planting flowers and shrubs. Our landscape design team can help you decide what to put in your raised garden beds.

Tall retaining walls should only be installed by an expert. An incorrectly installed retaining wall can be very dangerous for you and your loved ones. We can help you build a retaining wall that will be structurally sound. Not sure about the design? We can also help you select the best materials to use to create continuity in your yard.


Install walkways through your yard to break up the space and create order. This is especially useful in large front yards and in backyards with gardens. Work with our team to choose the most sensible path and design. We can help you select pavers or other materials for your new hardscaping and make sure that it drains properly to increase the longevity.
