Designing for small front and backyard spaces can pose some interesting challenges for landscape designers and consumers. Small yard spaces should be detail oriented, with special considerations being made for both front yard landscaping and back yard landscaping.

A few inches lost because of design errors may mean leaving out a desired fire pit or water feature.
