Water is the focal point of this Florida patio. The pond was cut into an existing deck, and the waterfall was made of Tennessee fieldstone. Backyard Getaway designed the space and built the foot bridge.
This tropical backyard features a rope swing from an artificial tree, a large slide that takes you underground before you enter the pool, a large grotto for staying cool, a rope bridge over the pool, a spa and a tanning ledge.
Stairs and a bridge lead from the pool deck over a koi pond to a more intimate patio at this Dallas home. Fountains lend to the English-courtyard feel of this private backyard while keeping the water in the koi pond refreshed.
Indoor and outdoor spaces blend into a single vignette in this Mediterranean-inspired home with a welcoming, comfortable backyard. A pergola covers a fireside patio that's perfectly sited to bridge indoors and out, allowing users equal access to the pool and the open-concept living and kitchen area beyond.
Beyond the covered patio, a wall completely opens, bridging the gap between indoors and out at this contemporary California hacienda. Walls throughout are white and furnishings are neutral, creating an overall effect that is crisp, clean and modern. Terraces and patios allow maximum enjoyment of the entertainment-ready backyard.
This family wanted a natural, wilderness-style backyard complete with natural stone fire pit, a spa, a freeform swimming pool and waterfall. Their backyard now looks like a mountain resort, complete with deer grazing on the hill. The multi-level waterfall splits into several spillways as it cascades toward the swimming pool. A cast concrete bridge stamped to look like wood planks crosses over the lap pool. Colorful planting pockets soften the hardscaped areas.
