Patio with Interior Pool, Raised Deck and Statuary
Beds of drought tolerant shrubs and ornamental grasses, sand finished concrete pavers, statuary, a raised deck for lounging and other features bring a zen garden feel to this private pool and patio area.
Everything about this gorgeous backyard, patio and pool was designed to evoke the East Coast's Hamptons. Pergolas provide poolside shade, while cozy furnishings and blue accents infuse the outdoors with a style all their own.
A stacked stone surround on the hot tub ties in with stone pillars on the spacious patio of this Mediterranean-style home. The homeowners love to dine and entertain outdoors, so ample seating in a variety of styles creates a functional space they can use year-round.
Just two-and-a-half miles away from Big Sky's Town Center, this $4.8-million home sits on 22 acres of gently rolling hills surrounded by old growth trees. The 7,500-square-foot home has beautiful views of Lone Peak and Yellowstone National Park, and the property lines the Lone Mountain Ranch, where guests can hike, horseback ride and cross-country ski.
A cantilevered roof with wood panels shades the outdoor lounge area creating an optimal space for entertaining by the water. A small reflection pool sits opposite the outdoor kitchen with a stainless steel grill, range hood and island with four chairs.
You’ve seen regular outdoor umbrellas no doubt, but here’s a clever solution for tiny spaces. This Outdoor Half Umbrella with Pole, $299 from Grandin Road, is the perfect shade over a door, on a balcony or along walls or windows. You won’t have to mount it, as it comes with a sturdy base that keeps the half-umbrella tightly against any flat surface.
Cozy up hard outdoor furniture with pillows and throws to make kicking back in your great outdoors even more enjoyable. But, to prevent damage and a musty smell, don't use indoor (especially down-filled) cushions. Instead, opt for durable outdoor-rated fabric filled with water-resistant polyfill inserts and swap in a Turkish beach towel, which dries super fast, for a standard throw.
The lake seems to start right at the edge of the patio, where long twin sofas and a roof overhead make it possible to enjoy the view rain or shine. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff
