Turning your backyard into an outdoor garden can be a lot of fun, especially if you apply the right landscaping design suitable to your chosen plants. If you have a gated property or want to build a fence to protect your outdoor garden, you have the option of using crawling vines, which always look great in wrapping up boundaries. They do not only provide an aesthetic purpose but they are also functional, as landscaping steps will lead you and your guests to those parts of the garden that are otherwise hidden in view by those towering shrubs.
