A curved staircase alongside a sloping perennial garden leads down the hillside from the upper level patio to this smaller circular proscenium-style patio with chaises and umbrella overlooking the canyon.
This backyard was created out of the homeowners' wish for an outdoor retreat that feels organic and timeless. Elements include a winding river with a waterfall, two fire bowls, a fire pit and a stone patio from which to enjoy them all.
Architectural stone bridges connect to a circular patio with a wood-burning fire pit. The rough-hewn flagstone boulders are placed in an informal arrangement, complementing the natural feel of the native garden and vistas.
Before stepping down into the backyard, the homeowners first walk out onto a curved patio, which acts as an extension of the living room. Sofas mimic the shape of the patio and provide a cozy spot to gather under the pergola. To tie the patio up to the pergola, stacked stones create the lower half of the columns, and Sweetwater flagstone is used to veneer the patio. Design by The Green Scene
Tropical trees and long grass create mirrored gardens framing the backyard patio. A fountain is centered in the circular stone open-air patio with lounge chairs placed on either side for a tranquil sitting area. Glowing exterior light highlights the house including the second story columned balcony.
Lights on either side of the path both increase visibility at night and showcase the yard's various trees and plants. In the distance, a compacted gravel circular patio will provide a private place to sit and reflect.
A circular patio design that is large enough to hold a fire pit and seating for up to six people still retains a sense of intimacy in this design from YardApes, Inc. that takes advantage of the sweeping backyard views.
Glass french doors let in natural light and open the room to the outside view. A circular chandelier brings a warm glow over the plush neutral bed. A pair of gray arm chairs sit opposite the bed with a dainty glass table.
Marble tile creates a decorative and attractive patio floor around the curves of this backyard swimming pool and circular fire pit. A small section of bright grass and a collection of palm trees adds natural color and creates a natural separation between the home's property and the bay water.
The stone patio features an outdoor sofa and pair of chairs, as well as a custom pergola over a circular seating arrangement. A fire pit warms this area, making the space usable during three seasons during the year.
Taking a step back from the bench allows for a full view of the patio's circular pattern. By laying the brick in this way, the landscape architects further helped this outdoor space feel nestled in its natural surroundings.
