Hardscaping Design Tips for Small Yards

Here are some tips to make the most of your yard:

  • Make use of levels to create the illusion of a larger space. This is also a handy design solution for yards that have uneven terrain, allowing you to make the most of every square foot. Using retaining walls allows you to create different points of interest, while laying down patio stones to create pathways connecting each space.
  • Combine function with beauty. Your patio can also serve as a gardening space by using planters or letting greenery grow up the sides of a pergola. Think multi-purpose and make use of your vertical space to maximize a smaller footprint.
  • Use clean lines. One way to make a smaller yard look big is to use symmetry and geometric design. This can easily be incorporated into the layout of your patio stones or other hardscaping elements.
  • Invest in professional help. A landscaping team that offers hardscaping services will be able to provide expert advice and experience in maximizing your space. They will also work with your wants and needs to design a yard that suits your lifestyle.
