Start by measuring your backyard dimensions and sketch where you want the patio to be.  If you’re unsure on the perfect spot for your outdoor living areas, download free patio design software and follow the simple wizard tool to enter the dimensions and let the computer offer several building recommendations that are ideal for your small yard. A big problem with a small patio in your yard is the lack of shaded areas. Most small backyard ideas don’t have large trees offering shade from the sun or room to permanently build a fixed patio roof awning for rainy days.  With that said if you desire covered patios for small yard designs we recommend investing in a retractable awning roof.  While they are more expensive compared to a fixed awning or outdoor canopy, the retractable awnings let you manage the weather and environment as it’s presented to you by Mother Nature.

When you’re designing a small patio, the placement of the furniture plays a huge role in to make the small space appear larger.  When it comes to small patios, our rule is too little is better than having too much for diy home design ideas.  The more empty space in a small area will help it appear larger.  Find small patio furniture that functions in more ways than one.  Look for outdoor tables that have patio storage areas underneath while not taking away from the luxury appearance.

Considering the limited backyard space you have to work with, having a retractable patio awning design enables you to enjoy the sun and stars while the sky is beautiful.  At the same time, with a retractable awning you easily have a patio awning roof cover during rainy days or when the sun is unbearable.  Once you have the patio built, it’s time to decorate your outdoor living area to make your dream design and accommodate your family and guests. Garden designs and ideas with colorful flowers, vegetables, and herbs are always a plus to help bring a calm summer oasis feeling to your small backyard.  In addition to adding beauty, patio gardens can be quite inexpensive to build and act as excellent patio ideas on a budget.

Teak wood is also perfect as outdoor pool furniture being resistant to the constant splashing of water and heavy play.  For a small patio, teak chairs and tables can be displayed when needed for entertaining and stored when not in use to keep from a cluttered appearance.  Foldable and stackable chairs are perfect for a small yard to help easily store them away in an outdoor shed, indoor closet or garage when not needed.
