Stuck with a tiny yard? It’s easy to transform your small outdoor space into a beautiful and functional retreat with these ideas from our landscape designers.
Lay paving stones and decking diagonally to make the space appear more detailed and larger. Make sure you incorporate sod, to create a softening effect. You don’t want your backyard to look like a concrete jungle.
Create levels in a small yard. You can do this by creating terraced outdoor “rooms,” or simply by using raised planter beds. Small yards should always have at least two rooms. You can break up space by using water features such ponds. BONUS: the reflective quality of water makes everything look larger!
Use bright, bold colors in the entrance of a small landscape. Bright colored plants catch your attention first, making the rest of the yard recede and seem larger. Using a lot of different product also adds interest. This takes away from the smaller size.
