Training & Education: make any outdoor space a BIG BACKYARD

Not every home has a sweeping expanse of emerald grass and a gorgeous outdoor living area ready and primed for family and friends’ enjoyment. However, with just a little bit of work you can “live large in a little yard” and help your potential buyers easily visualize doing so as well. Check out these three tips for making any outdoor space feel spacious and inviting, then let us know what you do to stage tiny yards for showings and sale.

  1. Think in layers
    You’ll be amazed at how much more attractive a small space seems when you have a raised deck increasing the amount of usable space. The addition also provides definition to a yard and helps potential homeowners more easily envision enjoying their outdoor space.
  2. Create a path for the eye
    If your yard is tiny, expand the length of the journey your eye takes to peruse the limited landscaping by installing a winding path that leads to a focal point toward the back of the property.
  3. Provide a gathering space
    You don’t need a lot of space to hang out with friends around a fire pit. Stone installations that allow for fun and fellowship without requiring a lot of space for seating are extremely popular these days and a perfect way to leverage a small amount of space into a large amount of fun.

How do you maximize space when dealing with a small backyard?
