Small Backyard Ideas to Transform Your Space Into an Oasis

by HomeDecorBeauty

TonThe season for open-air parties is upon us, temperatures are getting warmer and the sun is setting on the horizon later and later. Whether you’re looking for alone time (cue a meditation track) or a barbecue with friends, the outdoors offers you endless opportunities for stress relief. But what if your outdoor space isn’t so…good?

If your fresh air spot is on the comfort end of square footage, don’t worry: it’s entirely possible to create a multitasking relaxation headquarters in a small backyard or patio, no matter the footprint. Start with a few hardcore (and ingenious) pieces of furniture, all available directly from Walmart, and you’ll be well on your way to an outdoor oasis. From there, it’s all in tiny but interesting details like plants, pillows, and cushions — not to mention playlists. Just BYOV (that is, bring your own feelings).

Keep scrolling for five small backyard ideas to turn your backyard into a relaxing hotspot.

1. Mainstays Geometric Outdoor Area Rug – $80.00

First things first: Set up the scene. A rug defines your space, adding playfulness, texture and an open invitation to linger for a while. This navy blue printed geometric figure brings all the pattern and depth to create specific unfolding areas.

Better Home and Garden Wood Plant Stands

3. Better Homes & Gardens Wood Plant Stand — $23.00

What’s better than settling in a comfortable place? A cozy place dotted with gorgeous plants and leafy greens. You’ll want something like this unpretentious wooden plant stand to display your newest plant babies at various heights so they each get the attention they deserve.

Better Home and Garden Outdoor Pillows

4. Better Homes & Gardens Outdoor Toss Pillow — $17.00

Feeling comfortable outdoors is just as important as indoors. For that, consider a plush throw pillow that’s perfect for fresh air. This textured and fringed style is just right, while adding an unexpected pop of color in a boho teal.

Better Home and Garden Market Outdoor Patio Umbrellas

5. Better Homes & Gardens Outdoor Market Patio Umbrella – $60.00

A chic umbrella — like this one with black and white stripes — will make you feel like you’ve been transported to some far-flung beach, while providing Very Chic sun protection. Bonus: It comes with a simple crank handle, so opening or putting away the umbrella is a breeze.
