Small backyards can seem like they don’t have a lot of space to grow. But whether you’re looking for ways to improve the sell ability of your home or you want a more inviting backyard for visitors, there are a few ways to break up the space so your yard is visually bigger, more functional, and interesting.
- Use decorative concrete for patios that break the space into sections. Having a small yard that is a single grassy lot can make the space feel even smaller, especially if there’s not a designated area for patio furniture. Build sections in your yard that have designated functions such as a table area, a space for a hammock and a fire pit. By using decorative concrete to designate different spaces through different but connected designs, you can make the space feel larger without cluttering it.
- Decorate the concrete to add personality and make the style fit with your house’s design. Adding a new patio to an old house can make the backyard feel a bit clunky. But you can use etching and stained concrete to maintain a consistent color palette that makes your backyard feel like an extension of your home instead of a smaller, separate area. A cohesive design helps you and your visitors so the backyard and patio as a well-integrated space, no matter how large or small it is.
You can get only so much use out of a grassy backyard. Break up even small yards with patios and areas designated with decorative concrete so it will seem visually bigger as well as make the best use of the space, and go to Varsity Pools to get started.
