Gorgeous, Traditional Backyard With Pool, Spa and Cabana
This luxe backyard design boasts a formal swimming pool, relaxing spa and a comfy sitting area underneath a custom, metal cabana. Carefully trimmed boxwoods form a beautiful, symmetrical design on either side of the pool.
Centered in the backyard is a relaxing pool, anchored by a reclaimed brick-clad spa. A copper-screened cabana house includes an outdoor kitchen, fireplace and temperature controls for year-round comfort. Under the vine-covered pergola is an outdoor firepit and seating area, perfect for nighttime gatherings.
Crisp, clean lines and unique accent lighting make this entertainment-ready backyard a real show-stopper. Plenty of seating surrounds the pool, and carefully planned landscaping allows room for a tidy, rectangular lawn.
Large stone pavers spaced throughout the grassy backyard create a contemporary, geometric walkway. Stacked stone archways lend an Old World feel to the home and line the covered patio. Ivy-covered columns and elegant landscaping add to the traditional atmosphere of the outdoor space.
Stone steps and retaining walls are used to terrace down the sloped property of this expansive private estate. They lead down to a large formal area with brick walkways, manicured lawns and a simple water feature. Stone urns are filled with beautiful flowers to bring color to the backyard.
Designer Matt Partridge of Juergen Partridge Limited installed multiple structures that provide shady, gathering spots on even the hottest days in this romantic backyard. To enhance the woodwork, he applied multiple stain colors to the cedar structure and decks. Designer Tip: When planning an outdoor space, think about your lifestyle and how you'll use it — whether as a recreational area for a young, active family or as a private, serene spot for relaxing and reading.
