Behind the large, rectangular pool, a fire pit and chairs provide a tucked-away spot for chilling out -- and maybe roasting marshmallows!

Shrubs, plants and a lush lawn complete this outdoor living space.
A common issue faced by homeowners with wooden pergolas is maintenance. When pergolas are stained, they require yearly or biyearly re-staining or resealing; however, if you paint a pergola in the same tones as your home's exterior, it creates a more cohesive look and requires much less maintenance.
The fire pit is a stone's throw from the outdoor kitchen. Complete with a refrigerator, grill and durable zinc countertops, the kitchen is set for outdoor entertaining. Reclaimed wood gives the barbecue station a rustic, weathered look –– the perfect complement to the rugged fire pit.
