There’s something about string lights and hanging lanterns that make a backyard so whimsical and romantic, don’t you think?

This nautical lounge area sure does make a splash! Not to mention, the cool colors from the chairs and the trees are making me want to take a dip in the pool.

One of my favorite backyard incorporations is the vertical garden. It adds extra height and if you don’t have a grass yard, this is the perfect way to integrate that fresh pop of greenery!
Tip: Don’t have a giant blank wall to work with? Hang some roped planters on your balcony to create your own hanging garden.
You’re never too old to roast some marshmallows around the fire with friends! In this case, you can make s’mores in style.

Everyone needs an outdoor oasis to escape to. This backyard seating is the ultimate comfortable yet stylish getaway.
