When you visit a home, do you ever wonder what is in the backyard? It is very curious indeed, isn’t it? Backyards can be different: small, big, well-attended or neglected. Our case is small backyards and here we will take a look at most inspiring designs that make small backyards just as special as a larger outdoor space.
How to Make Use of Small Backyards?
Although a big backyard is always better than a tiny one, we have to work with what we have. Having a small backyard does not necessarily mean that this space is unusable and does not deserve our efforts and investment to make out of it a usable area. In fact, there are plenty of interesting design options to such small spaces to turn them into relaxing, cozy and beautiful place.
A tiny backyard could simply be a space that adds a green touch to your home. You can plant all sorts of beautiful flowers or herbs, keep potted palms or you can turn it into a tiny vegetable garden. Make it more attractive and build a little pond or a fountain and enjoy evenings by observing fishes inside it.
A small backyard can also become a nice seating area. Get some benches or comfortable outdoor furniture and organize a lovely space where you can sit and enjoy the company of friends and family members. Because it is small, it will be an intimate, even romantic place to have dinner.
Or you can go further and apply some designer tricks. A popular strategy for landscaping a small yard involves dividing it into sections like patio space, deck space and green space. The arrangement of elements as raised decks, walls and plantings creates different spatial and textural effects. Pay attention to how many levels such a small space can contain.
Who says there is no space for a pool in a small backyard? With a little design savvy, there is plenty of space even for a pool. It is quite inspiring to manage having a pool with patio and garden and all in one tiny backyard!
