These backyard retreat ideas are perfect for a lazy day. From a simple stone chair to a lavishly planted shady nook, these are all my idea of a great backyard retreat.
We spend a lot of time in our backyards. They are a place for relaxation and getting a recharge from the day.
Why not make it the best you can?
Grab a cup of coffee and prepare to be inspired.
Backyard Retreat Ideas to Inspire You.
Having a great place to relax in your backyard is something that is easy to do, just by your use of strategically placed garden decor.
Before you can get too far into the inspiration spaces, you will need to look around at your yard. Does it have bare spots?
If it does, then it needs some repair before you can position your retreat areas. See how to patch a bare spot in your yard at Pretty Handy Girl.
This DIY stone chair tops the list of my favorites. It’s big enough to curl up in! I would add an outdoor cushion and would spend the afternoon with my favorite book.

I don’t have trees that are close enough to put a hammock in my back yard, so I always drool when I see a setting like this. The hammock is hang from a metal frame on a lavish back yard deck.
My sister has a hammock on her deck and it’s a favorite place to lounge.
This gorgeous purple park bench is the perfect addition to this lovely shade garden with walk way. I have a park bench almost the same but it is more out in the sun.
This one suits the dimly lit area beautifully. Source: Healing Soul Streams.
Lovely cottage chic effect with a small distressed dresser and table setting. Perfect for morning brunch.
Most of the decor could be obtained from yard sales too, so it would not cost too much to make. Source: Home Designing
This neat patio has been made with the exiting trees. Great shade and a perfect place to relax.
And so great that the trees didn’t come down! Source: Flickr
