You want your house to look beautiful from the back, the front, and the sides. You want visitors to take an admiring walk all around your house. The backyard is definitely a great area to landscape to draw attention to the back of your house. If you have a small backyard there are many cool design ideas you can use. These Small Backyard Landscaping Ideas do not take up much of your time or money, yet they give a designer look to the back of your house.
Before you begin a backyard landscape design project decide the kind of look you want. Are you more comfortable with a smooth, neat, and pruned look, or is a wild feel to the backyard more your style? You can choose plants depending on the feel you want to create in your backyard. Large leafed plants bring a wild and natural look to the space, while slender fur like plants make the space look lightweight and pretty. You can use pebbled areas to bring a bit of texture and color to the backyard landscape. If you have a backyard that you want to make useful you can have a seating arrangement with stone slabs or regular sofas. Have trees and green shrubs surrounding the seats and enjoy the warm evening outside with a cup of coffee. You can use a Japanese touch to give a zen look to your backyard. For this you need tall bamboo groves, which have a serene and magical feel. You can plant large trees alternating with a few colorful flowering bushes in the backyard. Setting up rocks and boulders amongst a pebbled area also looks cool. Try playing with stone themes and use water in your backyard to give it a luxurious look. You can set up a small fountain in the middle of a stony backyard, and use green plants to give a touch of nature to the design.
