I am a big fan of small yards. While I love the idea of vast amounts of open space, the maintenance scares me. So how do you fit a lot of function into a small space? This outdoor room is a inspiring example of what can be done with a small yard. You may think you have limited space, but with a little planning, you can really pack a lot into a small area.
This particular yard creates spaces for children, an outdoor kitchen and serving bar, room for socializing and the ever important ambience through the use of a small fountain — all carefully tucked into a small backyard. The secret to effective space planning is creating zones. By designating even small corners for important elements, you can enjoy your yard without missing out on any function.
