Have you ever struggled with a small outdoor space? A tricky yard that wouldn’t cooperate with your ideas?
Keep on reading for a few quick tips to help you get small yards to work harder for you and deliver a fantastic outdoor experience not compromised by mere footage.
What is your key priority for your outdoor space? A spa to chill? A lush garden? A seating area with a barbeque to entertain your family and friends?
Depending on the space available, you might only be able to fit one or two of these options. Take your time to think about how you’d like to enjoy your outdoor space prior commencing any work or advising your site manager. It will save you both a lot of time and hassle.
If you’re building a new space from scratch or you’re aiming for a complete overhaul, it’s a good idea to hire an expert to plan out your yard and maximise the space you have on hand. The investment you’ll put in will pay off in the long run with a great, functional layout that you’ll love for many years.
Working with small spaces requires a good dose of creativity and compromise, always keeping in mind those realistic expectations mentioned earlier.
For instance, if you can create a sheltered area, it could function as a dining, entertaining and relax area all at once. Your green patch could double up as a veggie patch, or herb garden, or it could go vertical saving precious walkable surface.
Installing stepping stones and pebbles could save you the hassle of mowing the lawn, alternating a traditional paved area with crazy paving could break up the space and give it more perspective and so on.
Options are almost endless! Consider the amount of time and effort you want to invest in your backyard and take it from there.
