Stuck with a small yard space? Contrary to how it might feel, it is not the end of the world – you just need to learn how to take advantage of what little space you have and make it your own. 

And for that, you have homify! So, let’s take a look at 15 examples of other small yards/gardens that worked with what they had and managed to turn out quite stylish and practical. Trust us: it’s easier than it looks…

1. Spruce up them walls with a few planters and pots.

2. To create a visual flow with your surroundings, stick to furniture made from natural materials.

3. Try to include a lot of natural wood to enjoy a timeless, elegant look.

4. Zen is in; so, try out some white gravel and neat (almost geometrical) bedding layouts for your plants.

5. Respect Mother Earth—create your own terrace/relaxation space around existing nature.

6. Replacing grass with modern, neat tiles looks quite timeless – and saves on water bills.

7. How much more fun can a narrow patio be with a hanging hammock (or two)?

8. A green wall will immediately add colour and lushness to your outdoor area.

9. Some tropical plants for a unique, holiday vibe?

10. A soft neutral colour scheme can make that tiny yard look more visually spacious.

11. On the other hand, if you’ve never tried out a cheery background colour, you don’t know what you’re missing.

12. How much more practical (and pretty) does that wooden path make this yard?

13. Concrete benches are a great way to boost your patio’s usability.
