When the chill of a 417-land winter passes, there’s nothing like uncovering your patio furniture and lounging poolside or inviting friends over for that first barbecue under the stars. However you use your outdoor space, there are so many ways you can build it to reflect your lifestyle and still stay current with today’s trends. We searched 417-land to find homes with outdoor spaces that embody this design strategy, and we’re confident that they’ll each inspire you to take the next step toward creating your own open-air oasis. 

On the list are a  posh poolside escape in Highland Springs, a family-friendly country retreat in West Plains and a resort-like California contemporary design in southeast Springfield. Take a glimpse to learn about all the swoon-worthy possibilities, then start planning your own dream backyard retreat.—J.A.
