Keep family and friends cool in the shade with this pergola. Breezy fabrics provide shade without sacrificing sunlight, while cozy furnishings and blue accessories dress up the space. These inviting colors and the backyard poolside setting create a relaxing outdoor space.
A simple stone covers the back patio and pool area to keep it cool when the summer sun shines directly on it. Plenty of sitting and dining areas allow for taking in the seascape views while soaking up the sun or having a meal.
Sit down and stay awhile on this cushioned, out-of-the-way bench under a backyard pepper tree. Rambling groundcover plants and the curved planks of the fan deck lead your eye out to the rest of the yard.
What a peaceful place to enjoy some company. This outdoor design includes a small sitting area with rocking chairs and a fire pit. A koi pond runs directly beside the sitting space to contribute to the tranquil setting.
Behind the large, rectangular pool, a fire pit and chairs provide a tucked-away spot for chilling out -- and maybe roasting marshmallows! The area is surrounded by a low stone wall, and just beyond a brick wall around the pool is a lovely addition to more rustic and large stone masonry. Shrubs, plants and a lush lawn complete this outdoor living space.

A Verdant Lawn Adds Color To a Stony Backyard Landscape
An existing stonework pathway and seating area is buffeted by natural border features including a backyard lawn and sloping tiers of curved stonework walls which add fluidity to the property's borders while adding depth to an elevated garden. Complementing the borders are the arced lines of an inlaid stone fire pit and bench.
Clean and Timeless Backyard With Stunning Waterfall
Off the Palladian home, a negative-edge pool blends into the natural surroundings, dropping off into a beautiful waterfall below. Well-planned flower beds, featuring native plantings, soften the strong geometric lines of the hardscaping.
This outdoor sitting area provides a peaceful escape with its wood planked enclosed walls and a vibrant overhead umbrella. Lush plant life, including pink flowering trees and raised garden beds provide the space with a lively look.
