What Yard?

There doesn’t appear to be much yard in this photo. In fact, I’m willing to bet that this pool takes up the entire backyard. I love the design of it too, which appears to be Balinese or something similar. Not everyone can afford a pool such as this though. In fact, i’m willing to bet that the majority of people can’t. But it can lend some inspiration to those who can still afford a smaller pool and bar combo. Or even for those who simply wish to keep with a similar theme in their yard by putting in lanterns, trees and an interesting fountain like the one on the back wall.

Sandboxes aren’t just for kids. In fact, most people love putting their toes in the sand, even when there isn’t a beach around. The greatest thing about it is that it is extremely simple and inexpensive to put into your yard. All you need is a wooden frame, which you can make any size you want and with salvaged wood if you choose- and a bit of sand. Which you can buy at almost any home renovation store. Putting a fire bit in the middle is easy as well. You don’t even need to buy a metal pit like the one in this photo. You can build one out of salvages bricks or stones.

Natural Pool

Natural pools are a rising trend, and can contribute greatly to the title “amazing backyards”. The photo below makes this all so clear. Who wouldn’t want to grow up swimming in a pool like that. You might think it is a pond, but it is actually what they call a “natural pool” which means that there are no chemicals, no chlorine, no treatments of any kind. This is because the plants and rocks that surround the pool filter it naturally. You can even build one yourself if you want to. If you want to find out how, visit Clear Water Revival.

Point is, a spot like this makes you think of anything other than a plain backyard. It could take you places. Certainly away from your worries.
