I just finished this landscaping project for a client and had to share some pictures. It’s hard to plan the best landscaping when you do not have a lot of space in your yard. But if you’re having trouble finding inspiration, take a look at the pictures of this beautiful project! Here you can find some great small backyard ideas to choose from. The roses and perfectly manicured bushes line the perimeter of the yard. The fountain centered at the end of the yard is showcased by the brick pathway and patches of grass. A great feature of this backyard design ideas is that there is very little upkeep to them! You will spend less time mowing the grass in this yard, but will have just as wonderful of a view.
We are in dire need of small backyard ideas to jazz up the exterior space of our townhouse. We live downtown so our lack of lawn and green space is definitely going to limit what we can do with our backyard design. Luckily I found this photo that has a similar size home and yard, but that they did so much with it! I was surprised at how much they could fit into such a small space -- both greenery as well as furniture and patio areas. These small yard ideas definitely inspire me to think outside of the box, and not to feel limited with the features that we can create in the backyard.
When we first moved into this home I knew that I had my work cut out for me trying to figure out ways to add small backyard ideas that would make this minuscule property feel more spacious and functional. I suppose it could be worst and we could live in an urban townhouse or something but, compared to what we were used to, the small backyard designs that we were presented with at this new house were a bit disappointing. In order to move past that, I decided to focus on the patio area and make that space the real "wow factor" of the land. Patio ideas for small yards are actually quite cute and can fit most of the things that you see in those larger resort-style properties in magazines.
A deck or patio can be a great addition to any backyard to add a wonderful spot to sick and enjoy the company of family and friends. Here we see the finest patio landscape ideas to help you build your yard to use as an entertainment space for parties during the summer. You can choose among a variety of materials to build your deck out of, including brick, stone, wood, or pavers. For a less costly material, you can choose wood or pavers. The great thing about backyard patio ideas with pavers is that they come in a variety of styles including brick and stone, which can create the look of real stone, but at a fraction of the price.
With summer quickly approaching, I have been really in to researching small backyard ideas to revitalize our outdoor entertaining spaces in preparation for seasonal gatherings. I definitely want to find creative backyard ideas on a budget that can maximize both our small space as well as our limited redecorating fund. For under $1000, I would like to add a fire pit patio area like this as well as a new dining space and, in general, update our landscaping design. We currently have a pretty nice green lawn but very little shrubberies or flowers to give it life. I love the small patio ideas in these photos, so I am using this as my starting point for the design.
I think that this beautiful lakeside home is such a great example of how small backyard ideas can really enhance any property no matter how large or small. Many people think that backyard landscape design is easy, but it can actually be quite challenging to select the right trees, flowers and shrubbery to properly accent the natural features of your land as well as the architecture of your home. This is especially true of a small space. When in doubt, it is always smart to follow the lead of this photo and create a lush green lawn bordered by low bushes and a few bright pops of color from flowers. These are classic garden ideas that work in just about any climate and can blend fantastic with any style home.
