LouisvillePalmer Posted January 27 Report Share Posted January 27 Do you live near a large mountain or hill that helps keep temperatures warmer? Do you live next to a large body of water that keeps temperatures warmer? Have you planted tall windblocking evergreen trees in your backyard? Do you have other backyard features to help keep it warmer? If so... Post a Picture! I want some ideas an data on what works and what doesn't work to squeeze out ever 1 degree of more warmth I can. I live near some hills and a river runs through my city. I'm debating on if it would make sense to get a house near the river or at the base of the hill to help have a warmer backyard. Also pondering what would be the optimal backyard setup for microclimates. I'm thinking of an evergreen windbreak for the north-side of the yard, 6' tall privacy fence painted black for windbreak + heat retainment, lots of stone in the landscaping + landscape rock, and a koi pond to give off heat as well. ~ I'd rather be on the beach ~ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
