Backyard Retreat The different “rooms” in this courtyard are defined by the ground materials. The living area features a perfect turf “rug” surrounded by brick.

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.
Courtyard Garden - this courtyard is quintessential Savannah--formal, not fussy. Walled on three sides, it provides a view from the street. Walkway forms a straight line that draws the eye through the garden, over the fountain, and to the statue in the back. Statue acts as a terminus, providing interest and drawing one into the garden.
I like this because feels like you never left the house. I have seen such big patios but always thought they suck but this is the way to go if you ask me.
