Sit down and stay awhile on this cushioned, out-of-the-way bench under a backyard pepper tree. Rambling groundcover plants and the curved planks of the fan deck lead your eye out to the rest of the yard.
To help soften the clean geometric lines of the stone steps, grass is planted at the risers. Large stone urns are full of beautiful plantings, while contemporary yet comfortable furniture overlooks the negative-edge pool.
This once small, plain yard is transformed into a flowing garden for entertaining by host Jaime Durie of The Outdoor Room. A hot tub sits in the corner, while built-in bench seating surrounds a fire pit.
A shaded pergola is located right next to this Cape Cod-style house. The house's style is complemented by the East Coast touches throughout the backyard patio, including comfy, casual furnishings and pops of blue.
Behind the large, rectangular pool, a fire pit and chairs provide a tucked-away spot for chilling out -- and maybe roasting marshmallows! The area is surrounded by a low stone wall, and just beyond a brick wall around the pool is a lovely addition to more rustic and large stone masonry. Shrubs, plants and a lush lawn complete this outdoor living space.
Looking out from the upper deck allows visitors to enjoy panoramic views of the plains and mountains. By keeping the pavilion and deck within the same neutral palette, the TLC Gardens team ensured that this outdoor space stayed true to its surroundings.
Off the Palladian home, a negative-edge pool blends into the natural surroundings, dropping off into a beautiful waterfall below. Well-planned flower beds, featuring native plantings, soften the strong geometric lines of the hardscaping.
Natural boulders and polished stone walkways weave to the various seating areas in this gorgeous backyard. Beautiful plant textures and colors pair with contrasting stones to create a natural wonderland. Brown wicker chairs surround a stone fire pit for cool nights, while matching lounge chairs are perfect for warm afternoons.
