Peaceful Pool With Modern Style
Limestone coping surrounds the pool area of this modern backyard to create a stunning effect. HGTV fan RandyAngell added soft lighting around the pool to create a calm atmosphere, while the vibrant green stucco wall brings energy to the space. The fireplace creates a stark contrast against the deep blue water spouts and pool.

Modern Terrace Overlooks Reno Landscape
An angled terrace overlooks a sweeping view of the desert landscape in this contemporary home in Reno. The home's contemporary architecture offers effortless flow between interior and exterior spaces. The house is situated on nearly seven acres in an exclusive gated community.
Patio of a Modern Home Featuring Wood Ceilings, Fireplace and Multiple Seating Areas
This beautiful, long outdoor porch spans the space between the modern home and the pool house. Special features include the tucked-away fireplace, multiple seating areas and the wood ceiling with open slats that creates geometric dashes of light on the patio floor.
Mediterranean Patio With Refreshing Pool and Lounge Area
This lovely outdoor space was made for entertaining, seamlessly combining indoor and outdoor living into one fluid design. Guests can take a dip in the pool, relax by the sunken fire pit or lounge underneath the covered sitting area.
Covered Waterfront Patio With Stone Floor, Woven Ottoman
A breezy patio expansion preserves the views of the Puget Sound while providing covered seating to enjoy the scenery. A round woven seagrass coffee table, versatile outdoor rugs and red accents keep the look decidedly relaxed and coastal.
Double Level Contemporary Wood Patio With Privacy Plants
Privacy plants are an attractive solution for over-exposed decks and patios, but it can take a long time for them to mature. Design firm Eco Minded Solutions recommends planting fast-growing trees like the Emerald Green Thuja, which can grow up to five feet per year.
Dark wood outdoor armchairs are paired with plush white cushions to create a comfy seating on this modern patio. Overlooking the pool, a matching wood coffee table provides a place for drinks and snacks.
Urban Patio With Dining Area and Hot Tub Featuring Brick Red Fabrics and Colorful Plants
In the backyard of a garden apartment, designer Elizabeth S. Vaughan worked to add personality, using items that are easy to take along in a move. “Clients love when we add garden oddities like the bronze rabbit lantern on the steps,” she says. Note, also, the varied container plantings and color-coordinated chair cushions and umbrella.
Think of your outdoor space as an extension of your home. This thoughtfully designed backyard is an excellent example. Here, a Douglas fir pergola provides structure over the back patio, while the composite decking connects the entries of the house acting as an outdoor hallway.
Take the architectural route to your fire pit area with sculptural furniture, minimal decor and a contemporary chiminea. To create a focal point and ground the space, opt for a tall chiminea standing at least five feet.
