Plants provide a soft texture against the vast amount of hardscape materials. On the large brick wall to the right, an espaliered vine creates a unique focal point and helps emphasize the overall formal and traditional design of this poolscape.
The goal for this space was for the homeowners to be able to relax, enjoy the Florida sun and entertain in all seasons, day or night. Massive archways supported by Corinthian columns frame the beautiful view and support the wood-plank ceiling. Outdoor furnishings are sturdy, stylish and comfortable.

Lantern Pendant Lights Over Covered Patio Seating With Neutral Seat Cushions and Glass Tables
Wood beams cross the neutral ceiling over the open archways lining this covered patio. Lantern pendant lights hang between the beams adding to the villa style of the home exterior. Wrought iron patio furniture is padded with beige seat cushions. A matching glass coffee table and small end table finish the sitting space.
This private backyard patio renovation includes gray stone and boulders throughout, including the cozy fire pit area. An outdoor dining table with a neutral umbrella provides a lovely place for enjoying afternoon lunch, while long wood steps lead to a deck area that overlooks the surrounding tree-lined property.
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.
Designing a new deck? Consider adding a bump-out or other designated space for your grill. You’ll keep smoke away from seating areas and give the chef some extra elbow room. To make life even easier, install low-maintenance Horizon composite decking from Fiberon, shown here in Castle Gray.
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.
