If you use certain tips and techniques, you can make your yard stand out, no matter its size. Even the smallest spaces can look amazing.
Pergolas and arbors are two great tools for creating a special atmosphere inside your yard. They work best at creating a beautifully framed view.
Another good tip is to create small zones in your backyard. Breaking up small areas into cozy little spaces can add a lot of charm to your relaxation spot. And of course, you should organize this area in such a way that it feels as comfortable as possible. Boosting your intimacy is a great trick.
At the same time, you should use colors in an efficient way. Bright colors should be placed upfront, whereas paler ones in the back. This can make your yard look much larger than it actually is. Creating focal points is also very important. Again, this helps your yard seem bigger.
Mixing unexpected elements can generate a dramatic effect, enhancing your yard’s appearance. Paving, lawn and container plants can create such an effective mixture, mixing in a good garden compost can help it thrive and look it’s best too.
It is always a good idea to create a destination spot in your backyard. You can place the seating area right next to the paved patio, for instance.
