How to Make the Best Out of a Small Backyard
Very Small Backyard Ideas
Spending time in your backyard, even if it’s a small one, is a great way to commune with nature, relax during the summer, and get much needed fresh air if you are stuck in the house. However, depending on the city you live in your space could be limited. We at Yescom want you to enjoy your home this summer and utilize every inch of space you have. Here are some tips on how to make the best out of your small yard.
Minimize The Upkeep
If you have a smaller yard, you may not want to deal with mowing the grass or dragging mud into your home. Though some have chosen to use stones or concrete, small weeds always seem to find a way to dig through. Instead of natural grass, consider using artificial or synthetic grass to cover your yard and maintain a neat and manicured look.
Synthetic grass can also be used to build private spaces and create fashionable boundaries.
If you don’t have much foot room in your backyard remember that you can always build vertically. Use the fences or walls around you to hang planters, bird feeders, or wind chimes. Try stacking furniture atop one another. Make sure that you have an outside space for storage for all of your garden and outside equipment and tools.
Get Space Saving Furniture
Using items that have more than one purpose can save you tons of space- especially if they are portable and can be easily stored. A great example is our double camping chair that features an umbrella for shading and a zip-line cooler bag to keep your beverages cold. Outside furniture like this is perfect for when a friend stops by unexpectedly or for couples who just want to enjoy their space.
Light Up the Space
A lot of bright light can make a space look larger than it is. This optical illusion will give the appearance of vastness, even if the area is smaller. Create a focal point in the area then highlight it, this will draw attention to the beauty of the space, making it easy to forget the size.
Solar Landscape Lights are customizable and can give off the right amount of brightness.
An issue for many people with small backyards is finding space to put a garden. Use large pots to plant a myriad of different plant types and flowers instead of using individual planters. This will give you a variety of colors and allows you to be creative with your choices and pairings.
