Some people have a large garden that not only adds an aesthetic touch to their home but also adds value to their property. However, some homeowners don't keep their yard busy, perhaps because they don't spend a lot of time on it anyway.
To motivate and encourage you to spend more time outdoors, here are some ideas on how to get the most out of your garden.
Maximize your side yard
A side courtyard is one of those areas in your outdoor space that is often taken for granted. In that case, you can turn this area into a path defined by concrete patios and a line of an herb garden on the side, or hanging vertically on your wall or fence and leading to your back or front yard. This will make your garden space feel bigger, especially if you place a seating area in the corner of the property that is visible from that side courtyard.
Level it up
To create a certain dimension, you can install a platform in an area of your garden space. This immediately helps differentiate between the areas in your garden. You can set up a seating area above the platform that will provide plenty of shade so you and your family can relax on a sunny day. On the other hand, you can design your plants and landscapes to have a nice view while you relax and connect with each other.
Create multiple areas
Another way to make full use of your outdoor space is to divide it into several areas that serve different functions. If you have kids, dedicate a part of your yard for them to run around and play in, or even install inflatable play areas. On the other hand, arrange pieces of furniture for a perfect and comfortable seat so you can relax while you watch your kids play. There is also the option of installing a gazebo if space in your garden allows.
Consider concealed storage
Finally, you also have the option of using your outdoor area as a storage room without necessarily making this clear. For example, you can use bench seats to store your sports equipment or even the pillows and cushions for your outdoor seating. You can also put an outside cabinet at one of the corners of your yard to house your cleaning supplies.
Finally, there are various ways to make full use of the space in your garden. For one, you can use the space on the sides of your house as an extension of your garden. You also have the option of creating different levels or multiple areas that divide your garden area into parts and perform different functions. The big part is that you can even use your outside space to store some of your belongings without sacrificing aesthetics. All of this is geared towards making the most of the outdoor space you have.
