New Modern Backyard with Defined Entertainment Spaces
Originally, this historic home's backyard contained a swimming pool that was damaged beyond repair, so after filling in the pool, homeowners wanted a fresh, new look. Designers helped the homeowners come up with a color concept, and began work on their New Modern design by defining entertainment spaces. In one corner, a custom barbecue pit with a concrete island makes the space perfect for grilling. In another, an intimate conversation corner welcomes guests. A putting green is the focal point of the space, but the central living space is this elegant sitting area created from sustainable furniture that matches the couple's eco-friendly lifestyle.
The homeowners wanted a backyard design that would blend into the desert surroundings rather than compete with it, so designers chose native plants like gray-green cacti and natural colored hardscape such as warm, caramel stones and pale, sun-bleached wood that would reflect the warm, desert tones to create the look.
The homeowners wanted an outdoor design that would meet the desires of their indoor-outdoor lifestyle, so designers included multiple seating areas with chaise lounges for taking in the sun, half-submerged loungers for cooling off in the shallow end of the pool, porch swings and an outdoor dining table for enjoying a meal al fresco.
Plant-Bordered Swimming Pool With Neutral Lounge Chairs and Fire Pit
A light, neutral patio tone is perfect for this airy backyard balcony design. A glass wall lining the edge keeps with the open look. Plants border the perimeter adding natural color and texture. Lounge chairs facing the pool and fountain offer cozy seating.
This stunning backyard features a neutral stone pool with two sitting areas, one with brown wicker furniture and striped seat cushions. An orange umbrella covers the other lounge area, while palm trees and other tropical plants decorate the landscape.
The steps in the outdoor space lead from the upper level, which consists of an outdoor kitchen, an outdoor living space, and two al fresco dining options, to the lower level where an infinity edge pool gives the homeowners a great space to entertain and relax.
Palm Trees and Lush Grasses Surrounding Stone Tile Walkway In Backyard Tropical Landscaping
The stone walkway features a fun circular step design around a palm tree for an unexpected and decorative twist on a traditional yard path. Lush grasses bring vibrant green coloring around the neutral stones and home exterior. Landscape lighting and exterior lighting on the house bring a warm glow throughout the space.
