Dream Backyards

My Backyard Looks Nothing Like This!

One of the most important elements to any home is the backyard. This is that little piece of outdoor paradise that’s all yours. Of course, we all dream of an expansive manicured backyard with a hot tub, pool, and stylish patio but many of us are stuck with a crowded plot of land with less than ideal landscaping prospects. However, there are options for any backyard. Many Bullfrog Spa Dealers are also talented landscape designers that can creatively turn any outdoor space into a functional backyard home spa perfect for a vacation every day.

In the mean time, here are some amazing yards to get you dreaming big about your space. If it’s of any comfort to you, you’re not alone when you think, “My backyard looks nothing like this.”

Residence or Resort?

At first glance, this backyard looks like a high-end resort but rest assured, it’s simply a residence. Speckled with wonderful stonework and lush jungle-like plants, this setting is beyond impressive. My backyard looks nothing like this.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Rustic

Though this residence has gone to great lengths to remain rustic, this cabin-like campus (complete with pool house and private lake) is not your average squatter’s shack in the woods. My backyard looks nothing like this.

Orlando Box Office

Somewhere in Orlando, Florida, an affluent film buff is enjoying bigger than life motion pictures from the comfort of his/her swimming pool or hot tubs. Not only does this backyard look like an exotic resort but it also boasts a 300-inch movie screen with 8 large speakers, disguised as rocks. My backyard looks nothing like this.

Rink of Dreams

We’ve all seen giant sport-courts at the celebrity’s homes on MTV’s Cribs but this DIY hockey rink in suburban America is in a league of its own. What is even more impressive is that two neighbors sacrificed their entire backyards to host this impressive site. One suggestion: hot tub penalty box! My backyard looks nothing like this.

The Blue Lagoon

Reminiscent of a scene from The Blue Lagoon, this naturally inspired swimming pool is the centerpiece of a most amazing backyard. With a setting so elegant as this, it’s nice to see that the kids can still be entertained with a slide. My backyard looks nothing like this.

Gazebo Wonderland

This stellar backyard incorporates all of the must-have elements for any great backyard setting: tons of space, a pond, a pool, trees for maximum privacy, a spacious patio and a glimmering gazebo. This looks like a scene in a movie and of course, my backyard looks nothing like this.

Flower Power

While many can say they have a pond in their backyard, this owner should rise up and say, Yeah but my flower’s can beat up your flowers. It’s true; ponds are a dime-a-dozen but when the owner cares enough to maintain a colorful bouquet such as this, it deserves its praise. My backyard looks nothing like this.

Clean & Simple

A shining example of less is more, this New England backyard is simple but oh so sweet. Complete with a beautifully manicured yard and shrubbery, it’s the clean lines that make this one so stunning. My backyard looks nothing like this.

It’s All Good

In this particular home, I’ll admit, it’s all very cool, but the backyard is a major bonus. Look around; imagine living here with tons of beautiful trees, a pool, a basketball court and giant mansion, you know, just to shade it all. My backyard looks nothing like this.

Water World

This yard doesn’t necessarily impress with the foliage but it makes up for it with the water. If the pool wasn’t enough, the house butts right up against the water with a covered dock and a boat that is always at the ready. My backyard looks nothing like this.
