Tropical Backyard With Water Slide, Caves for Exploring

One thing's for sure: this backyard in San Diego is far from typical. Tall palms and other lush plants encircle the space, making it feel secluded even in the suburbs, while a spa, water slide and several rock waterfalls encourage the owners and their kiddos to choose their next adventure. Color-changing LEDs transform the pool into a stunner at night, too.
