Beds of drought tolerant shrubs and ornamental grasses, sand finished concrete pavers, statuary, a raised deck for lounging and other features bring a zen garden feel to this private pool and patio area.
Playful and contemporary, this backyard from HGTV's Going Yard is the perfect place for kids and adults. A teeter-totter is a fun element for kids, while a streamlined raised deck has an elegant dining area.
To keep the backyard consistent with the interior of the home, the designers outfitted the raised deck with furniture in similar colors, like blues and corals. Here, cushioned lounge chairs offer space for sunbathing, while synthetic turf below gives the clients' children room to tumble.
A concrete patio surrounds this in-ground swimming pool. A raised deck section brings level to the design and adds a warm wood color to the cool tones. A mounted bench, decorated with patterned throw pillows, creates stationary seating while chairs and lounge chairs can be moved around the space. An attached hot tub features waterfall features that flow into the pool.
Stepped wooden planters and a mix of grasses, boxwoods and evergreens make this urban deck feel lush and layered. The contemporary architecture and two-toned decking add visual interest, while the landscaping adds height and privacy to the outdoor space.
Multi-decks allow you to diversify your outdoor space based on a variety of activities such as this set up from Kane Landscapes which prominently displays a spa area on one level and a garden patio area above it.
