• Try creating a yard pool. This will be one of the fantastic backyard concepts of the summer time. You can actually make a cheap pool which you made personally. Money won't question because this can definitely be appreciated with you and your family.
Ideas and designs are almost infinite. Less is more as some would say, so in the case of a smaller backyard a little grass, a few bushes, a patio and a retaining stone wall could be just fine. A larger backyard would call for more, but even then it doesn't always take a lot. Our backyard is rather large by most suburban standards and it looks great. What all is there? A large grassy area, a cement patio, and an area circumventing the grass that is covered in an assortment of trees and bushes, not a lot mind you, but just enough to evenly space things out and make it look full, and lastly there is a gazebo which was there when we moved in.
When you have a small backyard, maximize what you have. You may choose to install a decorative fence to create a comfortable atmosphere. If you love plants, make sure you don't select bushes as they are bulky and could take a lot of space. Avoid choosing different plants and stick to the dwarf varieties. You don't want to overcrowd a small area when your main objective is to actually create more space, or give an impression of a larger backyard. Keep the designs as simple as possible. If you want flowers, don't experiment and be tempted to dump the place with flowers of different colors. Avoid visual clutter by selecting a single dominant color in varying shades. The same concept applies to your choice of outdoor furniture; select a one color and ensure they are made from the same kind of material as well. If you prefer wood, go with wood all throughout. If you prefer metal or iron, then stick with it for the rest of the furniture and outdoor fixtures.
My advice is to write down your needs, your wants and your constraints. For instance, you may need a swing for the kids, you may want new garden furniture and your constraint is the size of your garden. Taking this approach will help you prioritize what you must have against what would be nice to have and then help you to consider some of the suggestions below (some more radical than others) for redesigning your backyard. Ideas to get you thinking!
Just imagine not having to load the car with towels, changes of clothes and a cooler full of food any more. All you have to do is hook up a hose and bring out a lawn chair. If you kids get hungry all your do is send them into the kitchen to get a sandwich.
