A small yard doesn’t mean you can’t have the yard you want. Here are our favorite small garden ideas including small patio garden ideas to help you maximize your space!
Transform a small patio into a gorgeous outdoor space by adding a freestanding pergola. Here a small wooden pergola has been built over a gravel terrace and enhanced with a teak seating area. The pergola creates a sense of enclosure and makes the patio appear much larger than it is.
Crushed stone or gravel is a beautiful, low-maintenance paving option for small gardens. It is also easier to use and less expensive than brick or flagstone. Make sure you spread a layer of landscaping fabric under the gravel to keep weeds from getting through. On this California hilltop, the gravel also allows rain to seep through the ground instead of flowing down the slope.
