Having a small yard is one of the problems I needed to work on when I bought my first house. I was too excited to find a house where I can start building my life independently that I overlooked in the yard. I did not realize that the yard will play a significant role in my house as I go along until recently when I started to have house improvement ideas, and it left me asking, “How can I make my small yard look nice?”
I realized that I am not an expert in outdoor designs; that is why I started to look around for whoever can help me in my small yard makeover journey. While spending time on the internet, jumping from one website to another, I stumbled upon water fountains at Soothing Company. The website has an impressive collection of water fountain ideas that are pretty neat and versatile, and they must have understood that not all houses have the same yard.
You may be wondering why someone would still add a water fountain if the yard is small; why not? They work well every time, so long as you know how to work in a small yard. Here are the things that I considered, and perhaps you can start on:
Search for Focal Points
At the start, you may feel that working in a small yard is challenging. It is, in a way, challenging, but in a good way. It will let you use your creativity and resourcefulness, as it will require you to maximize what is available. Having a small yard should not make you abandon your ideas on how you want your yard to look. Start by identifying the focal points of the outdoor space. After that, conceptualize the area by ensuring that whatever you will put in that space is functional and aesthetic-enhancing at the same time.
Change the Measurement
In big yards, there are always some spaces that are utilized less, but it one less of a worry because they are not noticed most of the time, and they can only become obvious if they are looked at closely. The advantage of working in a small yard is that you can see everything in one look. This is an opportunity for you to utilize and maximize the little space you have and make your mind see more than your eyes can.
Choose What You Add
When looking for items that you will use in your yard’s focal points, do not go for things that are straight from mass production because most of the time, these items lack creativity and give you a little space for personalization. Instead, you may look for the things that catch your attention, like vintage items, arts, and other industrial items you have in your storage, and use them as your outdoor designs.
When working on a small yard project, keep in mind that the small space should not limit you from designing your yard the way you want to. What is important is you know basic and practical rules to develop the small yard with feels and looks that make sense to you.
