The key to creating a cool backyard is to transform the space into a summertime sanctuary. Whether you decide on a small and cozy arrangement of patio furniture or a stunning oasis with a pool, the best backyards are designed with your needs in mind. There are also many structural additions you can add to your lawn to create a designated lounging space, including a veranda, pergola, deck, or patio.

If you love entertaining outdoors, consider designing a backyard with an outdoor kitchen, dining table and chairs, a fire pit, and plenty of space for fun and games.

A set of privacy walls may also be necessary depending on the layout of your backyard. Here are some cool backyard ideas for creating a space the whole family will want to escape to.
