Whether you have a large yard or a small one, it is important to maximize the space in your yard. Read on to learn four landscaping design tips to help you optimize your yard space.
One- Don’t be afraid of height!
While sometimes it seems that there’s not much to do with a smaller yard, remember that if you can’t expand your space, at least you can go up! If you use materials that offer the eye vertical and aesthetically appealing components, then you will make it seem as though your small yard extends forever. Additionally, materials that are vertical can make your yard seem more private and secluded from your neighbors while simultaneously giving you that secluded oasis feeling.

Two-Don’t limit the space for one purpose
Many people think that they have to limit their yard to sections. They confine their space to either a pool space or a grassy area, or a cooking area, etc. However, incorporating various items into your yard allows each to complement and enhance the other. Using varying and creatively design spaces, one can create a multi-use yard that provides anything the yard owner might want. Remember that your yard belongs to you, so you don’t have to restrict your yard to being dedicated to fulfilling only one purpose.
Three-Use color and plantings to create depth
If you want to make your outdoor space feel closed off and tight, then by all means restrict your plantings to one patch or just use the same color. However, if you want your outdoor space to be a gorgeous retreat, you should use a varied amount of color and plantings to create depth within your yard. If you are able to properly mix colors, then you can make your yard seem like it was professionally designed.

There is no better way to create a varied, creative landscape design in your backyard than by mixing materials! Using multiple materials in a small space breaks up each section, which will make your yard feel much larger in comparison. Additionally, mixing materials provides an aesthetically pleasing look to your yard that is uniquely your own. Mixing materials alters your perception, which makes your yard seem bigger and brighter!
