Ornamented with natural stones and small evergreens, the backyard of the 2014 HGTV Dream Home is woodsy and serene. Two covered patios provide outdoor seating at the rustic vacation home, minutes away from Lake Tahoe.
With their children grown and living on their own, the owners of this property in Oregon were ready to transform their backyard into a fully functional outdoor space. At the top of their list? A custom gazebo with an open air kitchen.
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.
To help this outdoor space look more cohesive, the landscape architects continued the stone pavers from the upper deck to the lower patio. Meanwhile, touches of greenery enhance the yard's natural beauty.
