3. Reading and relaxation areas.

Creating a space for reading or relaxation under a tree or tucked away from the house gives you reason to retreat to the backyard.

Coastal gardens

4. Garden elements.

Plants don't just belong in the ground. Wall gardens or shelf gardens are a stylish way to decorate a bare wall or spice up a space.

Backyard built in seating

5. Built in seating.

If you have a wall that surrounds your backyard take full advantage of your space by building seating off the wall giving you more room for entertaining.

This seating is stylish and functional.

7. Family & pet friendly spaces.

Don't strive for perfection and forget to make a place for Fido and the kids. Coastal spaces are best when worn, weathered and slipcovered.

8. Water features.

Whenever possible add water. There is something so powerful about the element of water and the effect it has on us. Water creates a soothing relaxation all while giving your backyard a coastal appeal.
