Furniture: Think Outside the Box— Small backyards can be a pain when it comes to buying furniture that will fit.  Why not DIY outdoor furniture to suit the dimensions of your space? Make your own bench using cinder blocks and deck posts, or make your  own table using a large terracotta pot with the saucer on top!

Outdoor Rugs: “That Rug Really Tied the Room Together, Did it Not?”— a pretty outdoor rug will anchor the space and give it more of a cozy feel.

Less is More: Keep it Simple–seating for two, a place to rest your drink, flowers, and some storage is all you really need in your backyard. Less is more!
