Wood arbors designed by TLC Gardens and built by Trellis Structures layer the yard for additional texture and visual interest. When paired with ornamental grasses, these accents feel earthy yet dramatic.
A simple stone covers the back patio and pool area to keep it cool when the summer sun shines directly on it. Plenty of sitting and dining areas allow for taking in the seascape views while soaking up the sun or having a meal.
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.
This outdoor space was designed to create a nice transition from the home to the expansive backyard. A playground is perfect for kids, while a fire pit and dining area are ideal for adults. The landscaping features natural materials and a bold use of color for a crisp visual appeal.
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.
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.
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.
