15 Beautiful Backyard Escapes we’re Pinning

The Weekly Edit is back with 15 beautiful backyard escapes our team is pinning right now. Plus an informal announcement of our new project!

This week’s TWE is a fun one! We’re sharing some backyard escapes that are giving us some serious inspiration for our own homes. In fact, think of this as your unofficial announcement of an upcoming backyard makeover! We’ve been planning on fixing ours up since we moved in, but last year was.. well 2020. Nothing went as planned.

But we’re about halfway done replacing the floors, the kid’s room (read week 1 here and week 2 here) and we’re pausing on the bathroom makeover (more on that later). So we’ve set an approximate date for our new project and I am SOO excited about it. One of my favorite things about this house is the backyard, it’s on the edge of a provincial park. Which gives us the best views all year long, and I love being this close to nature.

We really want to emphasize the beauty of our property, and here are some ideas we’ve been pinning on Pinterest lately.

are we friends on pinterest yet? WE’VE GOT TONS OF CONTENT OVER THERE!

Outdoor lighting

I always knew I wanted to have outdoor lighting, specifically these solar-powered patio lights from Amazon. We have a plug but it’s really close to the patio door, and I would rather avoid running an extension cord from there.

Chris and Julia made over their backyard and I love the way it turned out. The outdoor fireplace is beautiful and it we defiantly have a lot of room for one on our large back deck.

I still love this patio design, and it was one of the original pins I shared on our current home’s mood board. It reminds me again why I want a pergola, the stone tiles, outdoor fireplace and beautiful seating.

What do you think of todays backyard escapes? Let me know over on Instagram or Facebook.
