when your space is small, to make it an extension of your indoor living space. Use hardscaping to create entertaining areas, and open those doors wide and let the spaces work together. Use furnishings outdoors, plant grass for “carpet,” add planter “accents” and remember to just enjoy the space you have to it’s fullest, no matter what its size!

If you don’t have enough space for a water garden, add a fountain or two in key locations in the yard. Be sure to have an electrical outlet nearby to plug in the fountain. In this slice of a brick courtyard, an ornamental wall-mounted fountain acts as a sparkling focal point.
