With the population growing and homes being built closer together, it’s not uncommon to find your backyard space shrinking. That doesn’t mean that your yard doesn’t still have what it takes to become a cozy corner of your home. We’ve got some great tips on turning a small backyard into a big deal!

Outdoor Patio Ideas

Bring an indoor feel to your outdoor space

Many styles previously reserved for indoor use are now customized for use outside. Outdoor furniture, like tables and couches, have been available for quite some time, but now you can dress them up and make the patio space feel more complete. Stylish rugs can be placed under the coffee table or dinette set, and outdoor blankets bring the whole scene together to make it feel like an articulate room design. Don't underestimate the value of choosing a color palet to compliment these additions.

The importance of landscape lighting design

Much like wall color can make a room feel dark and closed in or bright and open, the right landscape lighting design can give your backyard a feel of having more space. Well-placed accent lighting not only helps to create an illusion of expansion but it also extends the time you can spend outside when the sun goes down. Don’t underestimate the value of string lights, which can add a warm glow to the entire area.

Get creative with outdoor vertical space

When space is limited, it can be challenging to find ways to decorate without overcrowding. Incorporating strategically placed mirrors into your small backyard design will make it feel larger and more open. You can also add creative greenery by mounting plant boxes and pots on the walls and utilizing the vertical space where horizontal space may be scarce. Incorporating a trellis into the design gives your garden a place to thrive and grow on their own. 

Cocktail pools for small backyards

Many people think that you have to have a large yard to accommodate a pool, but that’s not always the case! Custom pool design allows for small pools to have a huge impact when space is limited. Cocktail pools are a great backyard addition for any size yard when you’re looking for a comfortable place to take a refreshing dip while saving space to enjoy other features that the backyard has to offer.
