It would be nice if every yard had entirely usable space. Realistically, this isn’t always the case. If you have “dead space” in your yard that’s not very usable right now, there are some things you can do to bring those areas to life. We offer several suggestions below.

Use Shade-Tolerant Plants & Elevate Your Veggies

If the main issue is the inability to grow living things, you can always opt for plants that do well in the shade. Ferns, acers, and hostas are among the plants that tend to do well without too much light.

With vegetables that don’t grow well in certain areas, consider using elevated boxes, especially if the main issue is the soil quality. Should the main issue be access to sufficient light, opt for vegetables that also do well in the shade, such as collards, lettuce, arugula, endive, cabbage, lettuce, sorrel, spinach, and beets.

Create a BBQ/Outdoor Cooking Area

Dead space can still be useful space if you get creative. One possibility is to set up your outdoor cooking space in a dead area that offers convenient access to your home’s main backyard entrance. If you have enough space, you can even set up a full outdoor kitchen, complete with seating and other perks. If the dead space in your yard is in a more awkward location, you can use landscaping stones such as snow-white pebbles to create a convenient and functional walkway to allow for easier access to other areas of your yard and home. 

Use Landscaping Stones

Speaking of landscaping stones, these attractive features are excellent for use in dead spaces, since there’s no need to worry about light, soil, and similar issues. Polished black river rock is especially striking in any setting, and the maintenance requirements for colorful pebbles or larger landscaping stones are generally very low. You may need to occasionally hose off your decorative rocks or stones, but otherwise, you should be fine. 

As for how to use landscaping stones in dead spaces, some of the many possibilities include:

• Garden pathways
• Decorative rock gardens
• Grass replacement if grass doesn’t grow or do well
• Ground cover for seating areas

Add Water Features

Bring dead spaces in your backyard to life with fountains and other water features. If need be, you can always feed the water in from other areas in your yard. Freestanding water features are another option to consider if you prefer to create a more Zen-like area or even a meditation spot.

Create Storage Space

If you prefer to be totally practical with your backyard dead space, you can always put outdoor storage containers there. If you have enough room, consider a storage shed. This way, you can store seasonal items, household items you don’t frequently use, backyard cleanup materials, gardening accessories, and anything else you want stored in a more convenient way.
