For the perfect outdoor living area, this home boasts a stone fireplace and surround, a small sitting area and an in-ground pool with tropical plants surrounding the whole space. The pergola takes a traditional turn by using columns underneath instead of the standard wooden planks.
This property was once the location for the James Bond film "License to Kill". The front of the house and the shape of the pool had very minimal changes, but the rest of the garden had a complete makeover including the coping on the swimming pool.
Backyard bars, like this one from HGTV's Going Yard, are a natural extension of the outdoor dining room trend. The extra seating and counter space are great for entertaining. The fun, tropical style of this bar makes it a desirable hangout for family and friends.
This backyard is truly a paradise. A stream winds its way down a rocky hill, emptying (via a waterfall, of course) into a swimming pool. And when swim time is done, relax by a fire pit or around the dining table.
