Hardscape Design: Making the Most Out of a Small Patio

Small patio showcasing expert hardscape design skills

Patio installation is a pivotal part of hardscape design. Most homeowners would agree that a patio helps to create the perfect outdoor living space. Because we have experience in both landscape design and hardscape design, we can create an outdoor oasis that will have your neighbors asking for a recommendation. We can customize your patio so that it tremendously transforms your home and blends in with your home’s architecture. Even if you have a small patio, you can make the most of it. Here’s how. 

Zones Help Enhance Hardscape Design

We often stress this concept, but it’s a vital piece of advice. Designating zones can make a tiny space seem larger than it is. Think about an open layout in a home that has a kitchen island. The kitchen island is a focal point that draws the eye in, whereas the living room and dining rooms have their designated zones. In a space like this, it doesn’t seem constricted. Why? Every design aspect has a place and a purpose, and you have room to walk around in an open area such as this. 

The same idea can apply to a small patio and a small outdoor living space. You can have your outdoor kitchen in one area with a bar, another place could serve as a sitting area, and then there could be a zone to show off your garden.  

Look for Multi-functional Furniture 

A small stool could serve as a place to hold your coffee or drinks. It could also serve as an additional seat for guests. You may also want to rethink the size of your patio furniture. A small patio calls for smaller patio furniture. A large armchair may make the space seem too cluttered. 

Rethink Your Plantings When You Have a Small Patio

Vertical plants are unique and can help you make the most of your small patio. Filling the space with herbs, vines, and colorful flowers will take your small patio to the next level. If you’re someone who doesn’t have experience with gardening, hanging planters are a low-maintenance idea. You can also hire us to take care of all of your landscaping needs. 

Landscape Lighting Can Make All The Difference 

Table lamps are a unique idea that can remind you of the comfort of home. Bringing the indoors outdoors and vice versa is a landscaping trend to look out for in 2020. Outdoor string lights can also help a patio look dreamy and effervescent. You may have guessed it, but we specialize in landscape lighting as well! 

If you have a small yard, and because of this reason, you’ve been holding off on patio installation, we’re here to change your mind. Trust in us and watch our expert patio installation transform your yard.
