Outdoor Structures

A well-thought-out plan for a yard with decks, fences, patios, pools, spas, and more is a beautiful thing indeed. We've collected the best, most beautiful design ideas to fit every budget, every yard size, every style, every gardening skill level, and every need. Start with options for decks, patios, and porches. These ideas will help you renovate a space you already have or start fresh and new. In addition to building or revamping existing areas, you can apply clever design and decorating tricks to your current spaces to make them feel welcoming and comfortable. You'll find inspiration for those here. Most garden accents and elements serve a function or solve a problem and add beauty, too. Consider the practical and pretty value of garden sheds and playhouses, which are great spots to stash necessary tools and equipment. And talk about practical -- retaining walls serve very real functions of holding back slopes, but they can define spaces and add style to your yard. Part of making beautiful outdoor spaces is creating memorable entrances and exits; use our ideas for pathways, pergolas, arbors, trellises, and more. We have lots of practical how-to and charming pictures to help you get started on your own yard.
