Inspiring Project with Covered Patio Ideas for Your Backyard

We recently completed a project that will inspire anyone looking at covered patio ideas for the backyard. It showcases the epitome of modern style and functional luxury. Centerpoint Landscaping is proud to specialize in turning backyards into visually stunning and highly functional outdoor spaces.

This Vegas backyard epitomizes the essence of contemporary desert landscaping for an enviable retreat. So, prepare to pin some of these covered patio, backyard patio ideas for your home!

Patio Cover Ideas for Desert Landscaping

In our recent backyard makeover, we strategically placed covers over key areas in the outdoor spaces. This was done to improve both comfort and functionality. We strategically placed the covers to provide shade and protection from the elements. This helped create a more comfortable and functional outdoor environment. 

The cover by the back door covers the dining area, making it a great place for eating and hosting guests. This shade provides relief during sunny days and protects diners from the occasional rain. It is ready for use regardless of weather conditions. The integrated recessed lighting further enhances the ambiance.

Similarly, the cover over the lower level area adds a layer of comfort and versatility. This area, equipped with a fire pit and a built-in grill, becomes a focal point for social gatherings. The metal patio cover, decorated with string lights, enhances the overall look and makes the space more versatile for various activities. The shade and protection makes it possible to cook and entertain comfortably even when the sun is at its peak. 

Covered areas in a yard encourage more time spent outdoors. It also creates a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living.

Our landscape design begins at the backdoor. It leads you to a grassy dining area. This area serves as the center of your outdoor living space.

The turf is beautiful and low-maintenance. It provides a green lawn all year round. This enhances the beauty of your outdoor space. 

Pathways and Privacy

Pair pathways and trees with patio covers to achieve a little bit of privacy! Stone pavers craft a path from the backdoor to the pristine pool area. These stone steps add charm and guide you through the landscape’s various features. 

Along the side of the yard, privacy is paramount. Lush green trees line the boundary, creating a secluded haven that feels both private and expansive.

To the right of the dining area, a lower level beckons. Here lies a subterranean area that is striking and functional.

It features a cozy fire pit and a captivating water feature. A metal patio cover decorated with string lights frames all of this. We strategically placed the water feature beyond the outdoor fireplace. It keeps the space calm and in balance.

This space is about beauty and functionality, with a built-in fridge, grill, and ample counter space for those family barbecues or elegant evening parties.

Accents and Textures

The yard has warm-colored walls that add a pop of color against the cool toned patio furniture and features, creating a balanced look.

The pool area, a centerpiece, is flanked by strategically placed plants along the walls. The greenery adds an organic feel and adding texture to the surroundings.

 Additionally, the sides of the backyard feature a few black metal screens. Terracotta accents from the wall pop out against the black of the screens, adding a modern twist to the yard’s aesthetic.

The Magic of Turf in Landscaping

Choosing the right ground cover can dramatically transform a desert backyard. Turf offers an evergreen look that is both durable and soft underfoot. Unlike natural grass, turf is an eco-friendly option for our arid climate.

It provides a lush, vibrant green space year round that feels like an oasis without the high water usage typically associated with grassy lawns.

Unique to this project, we extended the green to the table. A turf-covered dining area is luxurious and a stunning design choice.

Lush Desert Backyards

Creating a lush aesthetic in a desert landscape might seem challenging, but with the right elements, it’s entirely achievable. Incorporating native plants that thrive in dry conditions, such as succulents and cacti, alongside turf areas, can add variety and richness to your garden. 

Features like water-efficient drip irrigation systems and mulching help maintain moisture and promote plant health. A well placed water feature will also help highlight the refreshing look you are going for.

Heat-Resilient Design Choices

In Southern Nevada, the extreme heat plays a large part in landscaping choices. At Centerpoint Landscaping, we prioritize the use of materials that can withstand the high temperatures. This extends the longevity of your backyard oasis and prevents unnecessary damages in short amounts of time.
