3 Tips | Transform Your Tiny Yard Into a Satisfying Landscape

Let's face it, not all yards are the large, sprawling landscapes you see in the magazines. Living in Washington, DC your outdoor living space may be limited. But don't be discouraged. Here are 3 tips that will help you transform your pint-sized yard in to a real crowd-pleaser.

Create a Cozy Atmosphere

This technique works particularly well for a small backyard where you want to spend time on your patio without getting an eye full of your neighbors' yards. Plant larger bushes around the perimeter of your yard. These bushes will grow and hide the area surrounding your home, giving you a cozy little place to enjoy cook-outs and time with your family without being disturbed by things going on around your home.

Make It Interesting

A great way to draw attention away from the size of your space is to make things interesting. You can do this by choosing unique plants and bright colors. Split up the yard with several smaller plant beds to make the space seem larger. You can also make the space more interesting by creating a patio with uniquely shaped pavers. The amount of space you have won't matter when you use the space correctly and make it interesting.

Use Flowering Vines

When you feel you don't even have enough space to plant some flowering plants or bushes, you can make use of the space you have by planting flowering vines. These vines will wind their way up fences, arbors and anything else they can attach to so you can enjoy the beautiful flowers without using up precious ground space.
