Divide a large backyard into kid and adult zones.
When planning out a yard, include kid-friendly spaces as well as luxe entertaining areas. A sheer-descent waterfall in the pool is a fun element for swimmers, and also adds ambiance and a soothing focal point when dining on the patio to the right of the pool. A wrought-iron fence sections off a special garden for the kids with a playhouse, butterfly bushes, and edible berry trees. To get a custom playhouse look for less, pick up a DIY unit at a big hardware retailer and use paint and accessories to personalize it.
