One of their favorite things to do is entertain. Since they’re lucky enough to have a patio, unusual for San Francisco, they love to host barbecues when the weather permits. Entertaining is made even easier with a window that leads straight to the patio, so they can pass out food straight from the kitchen.“We love inviting people over to enjoy the space with us,” says Davison. “It’s a great neighborhood.” The hospitality goes both ways, she adds: “It’s not uncommon for our neighbors to lean over the balcony and invite us over for drinks.”

3. Pint-size party patio. This sliver of a yard in San Francisco’s Mission District could easily have been a forgotten space sandwiched between two tall buildings. But with the addition of a few well-placed climbing plants, a picnic table and string lights overhead, it is now a vibrant place to gather with friends.See the rest of this home

1. Make it your go-to alfresco spot. If the winds pick up where you live, a protected side yard is just the spot for a dining table. Narrowness can make it that much more intimate and give it a secret-garden feeling.

For city dwellers, a patio of any size is a luxury. Jesse Hayes and Kate Davidson of San Francisco take advantage of their narrow side-yard patio with a grill and an outdoor dining table. String lights mean this narrow patio can be transformed into an evening space for entertaining. The nearby window makes it easy to pass food and drinks from the kitchen outside.Your turn: Got a narrow patio? Show us how you make the most of it in the Comments.

Create a cozy outdoor room. Another strategy for narrow lots is to embrace the feeling of increased intimacy that comes with a relatively small and enclosed space. Make it look inviting with outdoor furniture, potted succulents, plants climbing up walls, and a string of twinkling cafe lights overhead.
