In Southern California, homeowners want to be able to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. And why not, considering the ideal climate year-round. As such, more and more luxury homes are featuring over-the-top outdoor amenities that are making outdoor living as comfortable as possible.

Here are just some of the features that you’ll find in luxury backyards.

Cooling Mist Systems

Southern California can get pretty steamy, especially during the summer months. But there’s no need to retreat back to an air-conditioned interior in order to stay cool, or even remain submerged in your pool. With a cooling mist system, you can stay as comfortable as possible as you’re lightly sprayed with cool sprinkles of water.

Fire Pits Inside Pools

Having a fire pit in the backyard isn’t exactly anything unique or necessarily luxurious, but having one IN the pool takes things to a completely new level. A floating fire pit is the perfect way to roast marshmallows and light up a dark evening while enjoying the water and fire all at the same time.

Outdoor Movie Screens

Screening your favorite movies doesn’t necessarily have to take place at the movie theater or in your media room. Many of today’s luxury backyards come equipped with outdoor movie screens that display films from a projector that make warm summer nights as enjoyable as ever.

In-Ground Trampolines

Parents are always concerned about safety when it comes to their kids on backyard trampolines, and they should be. That’s why it’s standard to see trampolines lined with screens to prevent any dangerous falls. But you don’t have to worry about kids falling from great heights with the installation of an in-ground trampoline, which is flush to the ground so kids can jump as much as they desire without their parents having to worry so much.

Swim-Up Bars

One of the best parts about visiting a resort is being served tropical beverages without ever leaving the pool thanks to a swim-up bar. Now, you don’t necessarily have to be on vacation in order to enjoy this amenity, as these are becoming staples in luxury backyards.

What’s a pool without a waterslide, especially with kids at home? Luxury backyards can get as extravagant as two-story twisting waterslides that add a whole new element of excitement to your average swimming pool.

Hedge Mazes

Hedges don’t just have to be part of the landscaping; they can also be a part of outdoor entertainment. Carefully planted and manicured hedges provide some fun in the backyard for all ages.

Life-Sized Chess Boards

All those pawns and bishops can stand as tall as the players with life-sized chess boards, which are just as stylish as they are fun.

With luxury homes, the sky’s the limit as far as outdoor amenities are concerned. With the type of wallets that luxury homeowners carry, no amenity is too outrageous.
