Every home’s backyard has potential to be an oasis to relax (or party) in. There are ways to maximize the space you have in order to create a space for relaxation during quiet evenings, or be the envy of your friends and have the best outdoor party area. Regardless of your budget, there is something for everyone to try with their backyard: flowers, patio furniture, pool cabana, etc.
Add plants, whether that's planting a flower bed or creating a vertical garden.
Build a deck (or a patio, pergola - so many options).
Have a water feature - you can go big with a pool, or stay smaller and get a pond with some fish, whatever floats your boat.
Add in pathways and other landscaping to create more interest in a flat yard.
The sky is the limit as to what you can do, because it all depends on your preferences and unique taste.
