Want to transform your outdoor space into a backyard oasis? We’ve got you covered. From natural stone waterfalls to open-air dining areas, there are numerous ways to create a sense of peace and relaxation in your very own backyard. Let’s take a look at five ways to create your own private paradise.

Add a Pop of Seasonal Color

Brighten the mood or instill a sense of calm with vibrant flowers and greenery. Whether you’re looking for fragrant blooms or a kaleidoscope of hues, seasonal color keeps your garden fresh throughout the year.

Entertain Alfresco with Outdoor Kitchens

The perfect place to entertain friends and family, outdoor kitchens bring all the chef-approved essentials outdoors. They can include grills, food prep areas, bars, dining space, surround sound, A/V equipment and more.

Go Zen with Water Features

Invoke tranquility with the sound of running water. Fountains, birdbaths, waterfalls and other water features help contribute to a relaxing space. Whether your ideal oasis is modern and minimalist or inspired by nature, water features bring beauty and calm to your backyard.

Get Shade and Privacy

Trellises and trees offer a two-for-one benefit of shade — essential in this summer heat — plus privacy. Enjoy coffee in your pajamas, curl up with a good book or simply enjoy some quiet me-time under your favorite tree or ivy-covered pergola without worrying about neighbors or outside distractions.

Soak Away the Stress

Take a load off with a dip in your backyard swimming pool or hot tub. From space-saving lap pools to larger custom builds, make the most of your backyard oasis with a swimming pool designed for your space. Hot tubs have been shown to help relieve tense muscles and soothe aches, while also improving circulation and even improving sleep.
