Backyard Mamma is pleased to welcome Gabe Givan from Sonoma Backyard in Cotati, California as a guest blogger. Gabe has some great tips to increase the appearance of your backyard space.
Having a bigger backyard would be nice, but co-opting your neighbor’s yard isn’t always an option. However, with a few simple changes to your outdoor space, you can make it look bigger. In fact, it not only will look bigger, it will also look more open and inviting, creating an ideal space to entertain guests and throw backyard parties–all without breaking the bank.

Try out these DIY, budget-friendly ways to transform your “cozy” backyard into a spacious one.
Dividing your backyard and garden space into separate areas might seem like too much for a little yard, but it can actually make it seem bigger. Create mini “destinations” – a reading nook, a fire pit for grilling, a zen garden, hot tub deck, etc. Your backyard will become a varied landscape instead of just a patch of grass.
