Creating a luxurious landscape design is possible regardless of the size or shape of your yard. By incorporating a few well-advised elements, your outdoor space will be an inviting getaway your family and friends will love.
- Create A View
Here, a clean pool design gives this backyard a luxurious, modern feel.
- Create Small Backyard Zones
With a tiered lawn, each area acts as its own zone. Different plant groupings and raised beds divide the upper yard from the lower yard.
- Make it Cozy
Specific zones help to break up the yard and create an intimacy that’s cozy and inviting for a perfect escape to read or relax.
- Use the Power of Perspective
Long straight lines trick you into thinking a small yard is bigger than it is. Use this to your advantage. Even a fence will do this job for you and enhance the overall design of the area.
- Boost Interest & Mix It Up
The mixture of materials, hardscapes and plants help add interest to a small backyard, pulling the focus from the size to the details.
- Create Small-Space Features
Make a unique space that helps add to the illusion of a larger space with something creative like a vertical feature or climbing vines.
- Raise Planting Beds
Add a sense of height and depth to a small space with raised beds for planting. Short retaining walls of steel, stone or other hardscapes help keep the eye moving up.
