Having a small or compact backyard space doesn’t mean that you cannot enjoy it. In this issue, we’ll share a few quick tips that can transform just about any backyard space into your own oasis.
Creating Gathering Areas
If you don’t have room for a deck or patio, pavers and modular floor tiles can make it easy for you to create a small patio area.
Because their weight will keep them in place, concrete and stone outdoor pavers can be installed without grout. To do this, select a space in your yard and cover it with sand to make a level surface. Then, just lay the pavers on the sand end-to-end.
Modular tiles are a great choice for updating existing patios. The tiles snap-in and are easy to install. They’re available in a host of colors, shapes and size.
Use Multi-Purpose Furniture in Your Backyard
For areas where space is limited, look for outdoor furniture that can be used for dual purposes. Benches with storage capacity underneath the seating, side tables that also function as stools and a folding table that can be stored elsewhere are good starting points.
Throw Down an Outdoor Rug
Outdoor rugs – usually made of durable fibers like nylon and sisal – are water and stain resistant and hold up well in the outdoor elements. The rugs are also available in a huge variety of shapes, sizes, colors and patterns that can add a visual interest to your backyard.
Decorative pots and containers are a great option for creating a garden area with natural appeal. They’re good for planting, creating borders and adding a bit of traditional flair in small backyards.
Good examples of decorative container include:
Raised Garden Beds
These can be built in just about any size, shape and material that suits your backyard. And because they’re raised, the garden beds will reduce weed growth, provide good drainage and prevent soil compaction.
