Knowing how to landscape small backyards can be tricky. If you don’t have a lot of space, it’s hard to know how to fit a patio table, chairs, a fire pit, or a garden in without feeling claustrophobic. Fortunately, there are ways you can do it! You’ll be able to create the perfect oasis whatever size or location of your backyard by using some of these ideas.

Even though separating your small space into specific “zones” may seem like you’re making a small space feel even smaller, it will help it feel planned out and cozy. The size of your yard will determine the number of “zones” but think about including an eating, seating, and garden space.

Include a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures of plants, pots, and furniture. The visual interest will help distract from the size of your yard.

Don’t limit yourself to just using the ground - think about incorporating a vertical garden to create more planting space and cover up a blank wall.

Having a variety of heights - whether they’re your planters or a deck - will help keep things interesting and cozy.
