Great fences make great neighbors

A Cleveland-area family centers an outdoor living space, complete with pergola and swimming pool, around privacy

This outdoor kitchen has everything necessary for easy entertaining: a grill and side burner, a fridge and a sink.

This family had organization ideas in mind when crafting their outdoor space. The pool house, sporting an eye-catching metal roof, hides the necessary bulky pool equipment and also has storage room for pool toys.

Outdoor chairs with plush cushions are gathered around a table, creating the perfect place for this family to catch a casual evening meal.

The swimming pool serves as the center of this outdoor living space, with separated seating areas making up the perimeter.

A pergola offers shade to a casual seating area. Nearby, just out of reach of the pergola, is a stone fire pit. The designers who worked on this space placed light furniture in this area so it could be easily maneuvered closer to the fire pit.

A pergola throws slatted shade on this seating area. The landscape company who worked on this home decided that this space needed a little greenery, so they added small patches of grass peppered with step stones.

This pavilion comes prepped with plenty of counter space and a few bar stools. It serves as the perfect place for both social gatherings and after-school homework parties.

The homeowner spends a lot of time in this pavilion, whether buzzing behind the scenes cooking, or leaning against the bar counter chatting with friends, so the contractor thought to include a fan to keep the air moving and the space comfortable.

The master suite opens up to a private patio design, complete with plush outdoor chairs and a gorgeous view of the swimming pool.
