Last week, we talked about several different ways to improve your backyard. Today, we are showing you some mind-blowing backyards to help inspire you to make those improvements. There are thousands of gorgeous and unique designs and styles to add to your collection of yard ideas, but we've listed just 19 here. Have a look!
The Garden Studio
This garden studio looks like it was taken right out of the movie Mulan. It's mesmerizing and offers a beautiful place to rewind and relax.
The City View
This backyard is short on space, but the designer utilized every square foot by adding retaining walls, patio sets for outdoor eating, and gazebos that cover the social area.
The Designer Deck
The time and effort put into the gigantic deck below is why this backyard makes our list. The intuitive design and flow make it an outdoor dweller's dream. There's plenty of area to entertain kids and adults, and no one has to worry about getting ticks and chiggers in the yard.
The Asian Pagoda
Here's another Asian-inspired backyard. The outdoor kitchen is embedded within gorgeous stone pieces and an elegant gazebo gives the area a dedicated space.
All I can say is wow! This backyard has a pool that looks like a sparkling lagoon, water slide and waterfall included! The decorative stone wall continues along into the stone oven, pulling the entire area together.
The Terraced Garden
This house full of windows offers a beautiful view of the courtyard, while the spiraling staircase adds the perfect touch. Steps and pathways wind through the retaining walls, giving the yard a geometric flavor. Thought-provoking, to say the least.
The Remote Hideaway
If you're looking for seclusion, this is the yard for you. The high concrete walls and creeping ivy make this area feel far away from the busy world on the other side. As the nights turn chilly, curl up with a blanket on the patio cushions and light a fire in the fireplace.
From what we've seen so far, the most beautiful backyards have dedicated spaces for each area. The yard below has a fire pit surrounded by chairs to shoot the breeze, and further back you can see the outdoor dining area. Foliage and architectural designs add just the right amount of character.
The Secret Garden
The garden shown here reminds me of an English courtyard. There's a colorful array of flowers following the concrete path. This yard also has a greenhouse - a must-have for green thumbs! I bet those flowers overwhelm the senses when walking through them.
The Outdoor Man Cave
I think this backyard speaks for itself. What guy needs a man cave when they have this?
A River Runs Through It
A creek runs through the whole of this backyard. It's man-made, which is even more mind-boggling. However, it adds a calm, rustic ambiance, and listening to the sound of trickling water can be a good way to relax.
The Urban Escape
If you're living in the concrete jungle, you might be cramped for space. That doesn't mean you have to look at an ugly yard. This elongated space offers plenty of room for entertaining! The wooden walls add a sleek touch and privacy.
The Angled Alcove
This yard is proof that awkward spaces can be utilized to create fantastic backyards. With several built-up areas for gardening and grilling, everything you need is right there!
Okay, whoever lives here is one of the luckiest people in the world. I would never go in my house if this were my view. The private boat dock and beautiful lake is the most eye-catching part of this photo, yet they also have a fire pit and backyard pool!
The Putting Green
For golfing enthusiasts, this is the ideal yard. Come home from work and practice your putting on the green.
The Desert Dwelling
Just a few steps away from the backdoor, sleep under the stars in the comfort of your own bed! The view of the night sky must be astonishing.
The Mountain Flats
The view of the desert mountains in this backyard is riveting. The palm trees and desert rocks give it tons of personality.
This backyard has an amazing view over the valley. Can you imagine eating dinner while looking at that captivating horizon?
The Family Affair
The final yard on our list may seem simple, but each shaded retreat offers a unique space for friends and family to commune. The central grass area provides space for the kids to run and play. Its design is perfect for family functions!
