No matter if you find yourself on a sprawling piece of acreage or relegated to a small back patio, it is entirely possible to have an enjoyable, functional and decidedly midcentury backyard.

Top 5 Tips for Designing a Small Backyard with Midcentury Style

It all boils down to 5 simple tips.

  1. Go for a sectional! It may feel counter-intuitive to choose such a large piece of furniture, but it can actually replace other (potentially clunky) furniture pieces. Why? An outdoor sectional can pull double duty as a lounge area as well as a banquette for dining.
  2. Squares are for, well, squares. Opt for a round bistro table to save on space—your yard’s footprint will thank you.
  3. Layer up with a rug. Just because you’re short on space doesn’t mean you have to be short on style. Make a big impact by adding a fun graphic print.
