Better Than Bacarra
This backyard used to features dirt and a $300 12' above ground swimming pool. Now it's like stepping into your own resort. There are multiple places in the swimming pool to relax, with integrated cocktail tables and a Baja shelf. A gas fire pit and built in conversation area anchors the swimming pool on one end, and a water slide accents the other. Water features spill into the shaded side of the pool, and a full feature outdoor kitchen sits adjacent to the fire pit area.
