An expansive backyard is turned into the ultimate outdoor gathering space for the HGTV Urban Oasis 2020. Multiple living areas, from dining on the porch and cozying up next to the fire pit to hanging out in Adirondack chairs on the lawn, allow everyone to spread out, relax and enjoy the great outdoors.

Urban Outfitters

Go with natural textures to bring an organic quality to your outdoor living space. This woven stool works double time as an extra seat and side or coffee table.


It's hard to beat an Adirondack chair when deciding on the best seats for your lawn or porch. This clever design folds up for ease of storage or transportation. Made from synthetic wood, you don't have to worry about it chipping or peeling, and it's easy to clean with just soap and water.


Handcrafted to order and made from heat-treated pallet wood, these planters are truly one-of-a-kind. In addition to choosing from a square or long rectangle shape, you can also customize your design by selecting single or multiple stains.


Illuminate your outdoor space with these oil-rubbed bronze light fixtures. The industrial-meets-modern design is completed with a prismatic glass diffuser that softens the glow.


Enchanting and radiant, string lights bring instant ambience to any outdoor space. These heavy-duty strands are water- and weather-proof and feature Edison bulbs for a vintage yet totally-of-the-moment look.


For cool evenings, a firepit is a must. The heavy-gauge copper basin delivers an utterly inviting glow and sits on a sturdy iron grate to guarantee a well-ventilated fire.

West Elm

Have a collection of cozy throws on hand to wrap around you and guests when the temperature starts to drop. These 100 percent cotton throws have a striking geometric pattern and are made in a Fair Trade Certified™ facility that directly improves the lives of workers in India.

Pottery Barn

For the HGTV Urban Oasis 2020 backyard, Brian Patrick Flynn uses throws that mimic traditional woven rugs to add a timeless quality to the space. Try these kilim rugs to create the same look. Buy them in the smallest size to add over the back of neutral chairs or grab a few to layer on your porch or patio.


Even if your outdoor living area isn't surrounded by sunshine and water, a chic pillow representing the two elements brings in a cool, calm vibe. The double-sided twill pillow comes with a faux down insert and is available in four sizes.


The HGTV Urban Oasis 2020 outdoor living space is decked out in plants, grasses and tons of greenery. These go-with-anything woven planters are ideal for housing your favorite flowers. Try begonias, ferns, English ivy and herbs, like rosemary and mint, for your patio and porch gardens.
