Transforming Small Backyards with Patios, Walkways, and Fire Pits

Unlocking the Hidden Potential of Your Small Backyard

Many backyards in the St. Louis area can be described as “small” or—in real estate speak — “intimate.” And they can be a challenge to work with. But when it comes to outdoor living spaces, size should never be a limitation. Even in a compact backyard, you can create a paradise that reflects your style, enhances functionality, and becomes the envy of your neighborhood. At Big Bend Landscaping, we believe that every outdoor space holds untapped potential, and we’re here to help you unleash it. Today, we’ll delve into the magical world of patios, walkways, and fire pits, showing you how these elements can transform your small backyard into an oasis of relaxation and entertainment.

Crafting Your Perfect Patio

Your patio is the heart of your outdoor retreat, where you catch your breath at the end of a long day, and where you spend weekends making memories with family and friends.

In a small backyard, this space takes on even greater importance, as the homeowner needs to make the most of the space the have.  We understand that need and have made our reputation out of creating outdoor living spaces that allow the owner to do exactly this. .

At Big Bend Landscaping, we understand that no two clients are the same. You don’t want generic and neither do we Our team of skilled professionals works closely with you to design a patio that suits your unique needs and preferences. Whether you envision a cozy spot for intimate gatherings or a versatile space for larger events, we can bring your dream patio to life.

We believe your patio should be an extension of your home, and we take pride in creating spaces that seamlessly blend with your existing architecture.

Built-in Year-Round Fun

When you consider your outdoor living space, are you inclined to write off using it during the rainy season or even during the winter?

Re-think that assumption! Big Bend Landscaping is a certified contractor for Renaissance Patio Products.  Renaissance offers beautiful, high quality custom patio covers, roofing, and pergolas. And we are proud to add building them to our list of landscaping services. Take a look at the rest of our site for examples of products and what we’ve done with them.

A patio cover or pergola can increase the useability of your small backyard, making it feel even more like an extension of your home. You’ll be able to use it on rainy days and in the dead of winter. And when the summer heat is bearing down, you can sit in the shade of yours, enjoying your yard in temperatures that are at least ten degrees cooler than in the sun. You can add an outdoor heater in the winter and a ceiling fan for summer and you’ll have a great place to invite guests to no matter what the weather.

Guiding Your Way with Walkways

In a small backyard, every inch of space matters, and walkways play a pivotal role in ensuring optimal flow and functionality. Whether you want to connect your patio to other areas of your yard or create a charming pathway through your garden, our expertise in walkway design is at your service.

Our team carefully considers the layout of your small backyard to design walkways that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing. From traditional stone paths to contemporary designs, we offer a range of options to suit your style. Our goal is to create pathways that not only lead you from one point to another but also enhance the overall beauty of your outdoor space.

Ignite the Night with a Fire Pit

Fire pits are a perfect addition to any backyard. But they are a great addition to the smaller yard because—unlike outdoor kitchens and fireplaces, they don’t take up a lot of room. And—if anything—make the space even more intimate and coy.

There’s something inherently captivating about the flickering flames of a fire pit. In a small backyard, a well-placed fire pit can become the focal point, drawing friends and family together for cozy evenings under the stars. Big Bend Landscaping specializes in crafting fire pits that not only provide warmth but also add a touch of elegance to your outdoor setting.

Whether you prefer a classic, wood-burning fire pit or a modern, propane, or natural-powered design, we have the expertise to make it a reality. Our team pays meticulous attention to safety and functionality, ensuring that your fire pit becomes a source of relaxation and entertainment for years to come.

We love our new patio, fire pit and seating wall. JL and his team were perfectionists! They did the work as if they were doing it for their own home. We were originally told it would be five weeks before they could start, but it was only three. Everything about the company and JL’s team were top-notch!
