Back Patio From Blog Cabin 2014

A mix of cobblestone-pavers and pea gravel form the foundation of this backyard patio, which offers a space to prepare meals, dine and gather with friends.

Designed to take advantage of the water views, this curvy backyard patio provides a central spot to gather and enjoy lakeside living at it's best . "If you're sitting at the bar, you've got this beautiful view of the lake," says Going Yard host Chris Lambton. "You can walk out on the dock, catch a fish, bring it back and cook some dinner." Glass double doors from the living room offers convenient access to the grilling station and dining area, while additional backyard spaces invite guests outside to relax by the fire or play games. With the help of online voters, a regulation-sized bocce ball court sits a few feet from the patio, and features two custom-built Adirondack chairs made from vintage water skis.
