Who doesn’t dream of a cool, refreshing pool on a hot summer day? Better yet, one that’s mere steps away from your kitchen. These backyards are more water than grass, and that is entirely alright with us. Between swimming, relaxing in lounge chairs, and cooking in outdoor kitchens, you’re bound to spend more time in these backyards than you are in the homes.

Explore these incredible outdoor living spaces and let us know which of these pools you’re most eager to dive into.
