Contemporary and Southwestern styles easily blend in this outdoor space by Kathryn Prideaux. A slatted pergola over the kitchen and seating area offers some shade from the hot desert climate, while a sleek pool encourages a leisurely swim against the mountains.
Willowy trees, tall cacti and succulents line the edges of this backyard, making the space look incredibly lush, even in the desert. A swimming pool and spa center the lawn and give the owners a way to cool off on especially hot days.
Meandering walkways and a variety of plants make this outdoor space look less like a backyard and more like a botanic garden. After a stroll along the flagstone paths, the owners will definitely want to stretch out in the hammock or cozy up around the fire pit.
