Outdoor Living RoomJust because you're outside doesn't mean you can't have indoor comforts. This Bay Area backyard is as cozy as an indoor living room with its comfortable seating, coffee table, fireplace and decorative accents.

Simple Built-in GrillIn space-limited urban gardens, simple is the way to go. Here is a basic built-in grill with ample counter space and storage cupboards. The horizontal boards used to face the grill's base structure create a crisp, modern look.

Functional Front YardThis Bay Area family wasn't afraid to break tradition by turning their front yard into a usable outdoor living space. The yard, which includes a fire pit and small lawn, sits below street level and has plants that provide additional privacy.

Grand EntranceSometimes a statement piece is just what a landscape needs. This gate, with its lighted stone columns, marks the entrance to this home in a memorable way. Consider welcoming guests with a clearly defined entrance of your own.

Fire & WaterWhen it comes to landscaping, water and fire make great partners. Combining these two elements is a trick of the trade. Here we see a fire pit with comfortable seating flanked by a tiered water feature covered in glass mosaic tiles.
