Tips For Increasing Small Outdoor Living Spaces

eastern-shore-porch-patio-small-outdoor-living-spacesMany homeowners struggle with limited outdoor space, but don’t let that discourage you from creating your dream backyard. Any outdoor area can become a beautiful oasis with a bit of creativity. To help you get started, here are some practical ideas for making the most of your small backyard.

Section Off Your Space 

It may seem counterintuitive to section it off when working with little outdoor space. However, landscaping experts recommend creating separate spaces within the area to give the impression of a larger outdoor living area. This approach allows for two distinct outdoor experiences that can enhance the overall feel of the space.

Functional Patio Furniture

An outdoor structure such as a pergola can anchor your patio and help divide it into sections. To enhance your outdoor living space’s overall look and feel, consider investing in top-notch patio furniture. This will allow you to create separate areas for lounging, dining, and entertaining.

Vertical Elements 

If you can’t expand your yard horizontally, consider building and decorating vertically. A backyard structure like a pergola can make your space seem more significant by adding height. You can add vines, string lights, or a floating garden by hanging planters on rafters or along a post wall. 

Utilize Every Inch Of Space

Make the most of your green space, and don’t let any of it go to waste. Although backyards may provide the most privacy, creating a cozy reading nook underneath a shady tree in your front yard is worth it. Additionally, if you have a side yard currently used to store your garbage bins, why not transform it into a charming seating area for intimate conversations over drinks?
