Tidy up:

If your backyard is very small and very messy, you will not be able to remodel the yard properly. So before you start to make the changes in the design of the yard, tidy it up.

Small Plants:

A small yard means that you will not have a full-fledged garden. But that doesn’t mean that you can not have a smaller version of a big garden. The bonsais can be the perfect ornamental tree for your small backyard. But bonsai can be costly. So choose the colorful seasonal pot plants if you are little short on budget.
