Pool Area With Swing Bed at Night

The swing-bed pergola allows the homeowners to sit back and enjoy their backyard. Palm trees were added to give the yard a resort-vibe. Touches of home can be seen in the columns, which mimic the front porch, and dainty white picket fences on either side. See another view of the yard in the next slide.
