One of the garden's greatest strengths is its intuitive layout: guests enter off the kitchen, arrive at an outdoor dining table, then shift to a nearby sitting area for drinks before they end the night by the fire pit.
Beautiful landscaping combined with a stone outdoor kitchen, large seating area and fire pit create an ideal place for enjoying time with family and friends. The bright, vivid colors of the bench cushions help bring out the colors in the surrounding scenery.
Just around the corner from the dining area, two wicker armchairs give the owners another spot to read or relax. With flowers all around and the warm glow of lights in the distance, the space is truly enchanting.

Exterior speakers enhance the ambience.
Backyard Retreat Features Fire Pit & Swimming Pool

Adding a decorative lattice fence accent not only establishes an elegant backdrop, but also brings the space together with form and function. A white scalloped lattice fence with a keyhole gracefully stands in front of feathery evergreens, giving the space definition and creating a focal point.

Additionally, the same material was repeated for an arched arbor gate that invites you into the space.
Carved wood benches and stools decorate the space, too, inviting guests to put their feet up and relax. With such a lush backdrop, this sitting area puts the beauty of the outdoors right at the owners' fingertips.
The ideal place for relaxing outdoors, this patio area is nestled in between the sections of the house so that it receives plenty of shade. Plush, cushioned chairs make it a comfy place to enjoy conversation with friends and family.
