Zoning is the most effective way to utilise space. Separate your desired areas using tiles, floorboards or grass, and create natural boundaries with plants or in-built seating. Zoning provides structure and maximises space.
A beautiful backyard always requires some greenery, but it can take up precious space. So if you can’t go out, why not go up? Using the same principle as a double storey home, save ground space by using your walls and fences to hang plants and décor from.
Having matching tiles or floorboards flow from inside to outside makes you feel as though you are in one giant area. Bifold doors can open it further, and instantly increases the imagined size of both the outside, and inside, of your home.
Matching the colours and textures of your backyard tiles to your home not only looks nice, but makes the area appear bigger. Larger tiles also give the illusion there is more space than what there actually is.
