The backyard, bordered by beds of drought-tolerant grasses and flowers, offers a bocce court and an outdoor grilling station.

A back deck is the perfect spot to soak up the sun or fire up the grill for a summer picnic. The outdoor kitchen island features smooth granite-style surfaces and a manufactured stone foundation.

The Kenmore outdoor kitchen gas grill – complete with a heavy-duty rotisserie with built-in light, an infrared burner and a side griddle – handles multiple cooking needs.

A bocce court replaces a backyard water feature in this eco-friendly backyard space. A crushed shell blend serves as the court's surface cover.

The deck and bocce court frame were custom-constructed from Trex, a decking material fashioned from reclaimed wood and plastic.

The backyard opens out onto acres of land and is the perfect spot to perch and observe Florida wildlife.
