Some of our favorite backyard swimming pool designs from past seasons.
Who needs a vacation? In the last few years, homeowners recognized the advantage of creating their own backyard resort. Let's face it. “Stay-cation” is now a part of our vocabulary. While most people think a swimming pool is just the ticket, more families are looking at spaces for of all sorts of outdoor games. Limited space? Create a driveway basketball court from brick or concrete pavers, like the one we designed and built in St. Paul, MN.
We have all seen tennis courts, basketball courts and trampolines at the neighbors. And backyard hockey rinks are a favorite here in Minnesota. But consider adding one of these less common sports or games to your backyard – chess boards, horseshoes, putting greens, bocce ball, volleyball, shuffleboard, or badminton. No reservations necessary.
You Want a Piece of Me? Who can resist a little friendly, family competition? Your house will be THE place to be in the neighborhood. A ton of fun, and right out the back door!
Between the pool and retaining wall, a putting green and game space add another dimension to the backyard fun.
