Lush landscaping does more than just boost a second home’s curb appeal — it creates natural spaces to unwind and make new memories. With gorgeous grounds and sprawling greens, these five outdoor escapes are anything but garden-variety yards. 

Poolside oasis

Tucked into one corner of a sprawling one-acre Palm Springs compound, this poolside garden helps Oasis live up to its name. This Pacaso’s calming water features and native plantings create a luxurious backyard paradise.

Palm paradise

Outdoor living reaches new heights in this Pacaso, thanks to The Palm’s eponymous tree. Nestled in 1.4 acres in the heart of Napa Valley, this home’s curated green space offers order, calm and tranquility.

Backyard back nine

All the benefits of an expertly maintained backyard and none of the upkeep — Mountain Vista’s sprawling lawn is actually a hole on the historic Indian Wells Country Club course. Tee time, anyone?
