Living in a small space makes us get more creative. It’s a fact. When we expect many things from our home, it seems like we want to decorate many things there. Then, the creative side comes when we realize that space isn’t enough. Hence, we play with some tricks in order to get what we want.
When we need to play tricks like that, it is so challenging. And in the end, we can learn many things from smart and creative decorating. And one of the problems of a small home is, it’s hard to get a backyard. Yet, hard doesn’t mean you cannot get it. If you want some ideas of small backyard landscaping, you can see some inspirations here.
The first idea you can build in your small backyard is a narrow swimming pool. You don’t have to make a large one, a 2×4 m swimming pool will be enough. In the remaining narrow space, you can still place some lounge chairs. You can put them really close to the walls, so there will be enough space for walking. If there is no remaining space for plantation, you can grow the vertical garden instead.
If you really want the outdoor bath, yet space is not even enough for a narrow swimming pool, you can make the bath basin instead. Thus, you can build a pool that bigger than a bathtub yet smaller than a very small swimming pool. You can decorate its surrounding with pebbles and many plants.
In your small backyard, you can enjoy rolling on the grass. How? The key is, don’t use big furniture pieces or don’t put any furniture at all. You can plant artificial grass in your small backyard.
Then, some people also prefer more on the neat backyard. If you also prefer this one, you can eliminate the water feature or grass thing. You can cover the backyard with pavement or brick or even tiles. You can make the place for chit chat instead there. If you don’t plan to do renovation in the future, you can build the permanent seating space. However, if you plan to do some makeover in the future, you can put some picnic furniture pieces.
In your small backyard, you can make it more special by building a pergola. So, the plan is like this, you place some simple dining furniture and build a pergola above that. To make that pergola more aesthetic, you can grow hanging plants like wisteria.
