ASTON, PA, Mar 12, 2014—As Spring approaches, homeowners across the country are dreaming of warm afternoons and evenings spent outside. For those without ample land, turning your backyard into an outdoor oasis is just several simple steps away. If you're planning on landscaping this spring and summer, keep the following tips in mind, provided by Lisa Pecora & Louise Marchetti, Louise Marchetti & Lisa Pecora of Visit Our Website.
Keep it to scale
If your space is small, the different areas of your yard—say, your patio and garden—will need to be moderate in size as well. “An average size deck in a below average size yard will make the deck seem huge, and the yard space minimal,” explains Louise Marchetti. Keep your deck or patio quaint and cut your garden back to the essentials.
If you try and cram in too many pieces of furniture or kids’ toys, your yard will look cluttered and even more cramped. In order to maximize your space, you will need to minimize things like lawn furniture and yard accessories. Pick simple, streamlined pieces and try to look for moveable accents, suggests Louise Marchetti, like a lawn table or grill with wheels you can pull out from the garage when it's barbecue time.
An overgrown lawn and garden will make your yard space look even more condensed. “The great thing about less yard is it takes less maintenance, so keep up with mowing, pruning and weeding,” says Louise Marchetti.
If you have a fence or trellis, plant things that will grow vertically, whether it be flowering vines, tomatoes or peas. Additionally, consider hanging plants or stackable garden planters to streamline what little garden grove you have available.
