In the realm of outdoor living, size should never limit your creativity. At 3 Brothers Decking, we believe that every space, no matter how compact, holds the potential for breathtaking design. Small yards present unique opportunities to create intimate, cozy, and inviting outdoor retreats.


Multi-Level Decks: Take advantage of vertical space by incorporating multi-level decking. Tiered platforms not only add visual interest but also create distinct zones for dining, lounging, and gardening. By utilizing different levels, you can maximize every inch of your small yard while adding depth and dimension to the design.

Floating Decks: For yards with limited ground space or uneven terrain, floating decks offer an elegant solution. These minimalist structures appear to “float” above the ground, providing a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors. Opt for sleek, low-profile designs to maintain a sense of openness and spaciousness.

Built-In Seating: Integrate built-in seating directly into your deck’s design to save space and streamline the layout. Bench seating along the perimeter not only maximizes seating capacity but also eliminates the need for bulky outdoor furniture. Consider incorporating storage beneath the seats to stow away cushions, gardening tools, or outdoor accessories.

Compact Dining Areas: Create an intimate dining space on your deck with a compact table and chairs. Opt for space-saving furniture designs such as foldable tables, stackable chairs, or built-in benches with a pull-out table. Enhance the ambiance with string lights, lanterns, or a stylish outdoor rug to define the dining area.

Pergolas and Shade Structures: Escape the sun’s harsh rays and add architectural interest to your small yard with a pergola or shade structure. These overhead elements provide relief from the heat while adding visual appeal and defining the deck’s outdoor living space. Customize your pergola with retractable shades, climbing plants, or integrated lighting for added comfort and ambiance.

Fire Features: Extend the enjoyment of your outdoor space into the cooler evenings with a fire feature. Whether it’s a sleek fire pit, a cozy fireplace, or a tabletop fire bowl, adding warmth and ambiance to your deck creates a welcoming gathering spot year-round. Arrange seating around the fire feature to encourage cozy conversations and relaxation.
