You want a sumptuous backyard design that is also pragmatic, but you’re not entirely sure where to start. Here are some different ideas to consider when designing the perfect backyard:
In-Ground Pool – A pool is always a welcome treat on a hot summer day. Pools can be built with exercise in mind, including lap pools, diving, and areas for sports such as pool volleyball. Pools can vary in shapes, sizes, and use. Some pools are created to blend in with your scenery, making your backyard appear to continue infinitely. Pools are also family-friendly – children are always excited and rarely bored when attending a get-together at a home with a pool.
Fire Pit – Fire has been used for centuries to provide calm lighting and a social atmosphere. A fire pit provides the perfect visual complement to the water in your pool, as well as a relaxing place to socialize after a meal or a long swim.
Outdoor Kitchen – Bring all aspects of entertaining outside with an outdoor kitchen. It’s hard to socialize with your guests when they are enjoying your amazing yard outside and you are stuck cooking inside. Bring all of your favorite aspects of your kitchen outside where cooking can be part of the entertainment. Outdoor shelves, preparation space, sinks, refrigerators, bars, and grills are easy to add to any backyard design.
Zen Garden – A Zen garden or a Japanese garden is sure to create a relaxing atmosphere where your guests feel more like they are at a resort than a friend or family member’s house. Artistic design with distinct elements and precise foliage in your garden are sure to bring about conversation from guests, as well as provide you with a relaxing getaway to read a book, sunbathe, or listen to the sounds of nature.
Playhouse – If you have children, you may consider adding a tree house or playhouse themed area in your backyard design plans. There are many options including slides, swings, ladders, and sandboxes that children will find appealing. Some of these ideas can even be adjacent to or incorporated into your swimming pool.
