Jumping from the bed into the pool
Pavilion and Shed A new pavilion and shed add an air of luxury to this poolside patio. The shed includes a Dutch door, board-and-batten siding, and a stone base for that poolside look. For the pavilion, the owners chose similar materials, including cedar shakes, copper gutters, and custom iron window grilles. A large outdoor fireplace anchors the space.
Twining vines of clematis soften the hardscaping and add a burst of color to this outdoor room.

Cortney and Robert Novogratz used wooden planks to create a woven covering for this urban outdoor dining room.
Tangerine touches add whimsy here, but this landscape is also quite sophisticated. Less is more with orange, and the designer perfectly balances the bright orange textiles, natural wood furniture and raised beds filled with foliage plants. Variations of orange range from terra-cotta to peach to coral; you don't have to use a hypnotic orange on its own.

Covered Deck with windowbox container garden is a creative use of backyard space and landscaping idea for vertical space
Split-level: gravel was replaced with two levels of colored concrete, the upper terrace is used mostly for dining and hanging out; three steps down, a built-in bench invites guests to lounge around the fire pit. A gappy ipe fence gives a sense of spaciousness while preserving privacy. Low care plants, such as autumn moor grass, Mexican weeping bamboo, and yucca, soften the angular design.
