What do you think of when you see a small yard? Many people have yards that seem to be too small for anything other than a few flowers and maybe an outdoor table. It might seem like there is nothing else you can do with your small space, but that isn’t true! In this blog post, we’ll discuss 4 curb appeal tips for small yards.
Add A Small Lawn
A way to make an otherwise empty yard look finished and not so empty is by adding a small lawn or two. You can also add some garden paths which will fill up the space and give your home a nice little touch while bringing in some flowers! Adding flower pots is another great idea: they bring life into your home while making it look more vibrant and appealing. It’s up to you whether you want to add single plants or create little garden beds; both options are very affordable and either way, it adds an interesting aspect to your small backyard.
Plant Climbers Along Fences
When planting climbers like wisteria, jasmine, or climbing roses, you should keep in mind that they will grow quite large over the years. If you want to enjoy them for an extended period, it is best to line your fence with them so they will not over-grow the fences and create some shade. This way you can escape from the sun on hot summer days while enjoying the beauty of your garden. You can also plant climbers along with pergolas; this gives a great look!
Add Raised Beds
Adding raised beds that are filled with flowers is also another great idea if you don’t like having lawns in your backyard (or even if you do). These small flowerbeds will give life to any yard regardless of its size; I love how they make my home look more appealing and inviting. They catch people’s attention when they see them.
Last but not least, another great idea is to install fences which will create a small private space for you and your family members. Luckily, nowadays there are so many types of fencing available that you can find anything matching your style or budget. You can even use landscape timbers for a more rustic look! There are also garage screen kits that will allow fresh air during summer days while giving you some privacy at the same time.
