How Your Backyard Can Boost Your Wellbeing

As the effects of the pandemic have hampered travel plans and forced many to spend more time at home than ever before, it has become increasingly important to have well-designed and beautifully upgraded interior and exterior spaces. Spending time outdoors offers a myriad of benefits, from a place to relax, spend time with friends or family or get in a workout. At Creative Environments, we have decades of experience bringing homeowner’s dreams from the drawing board to life. If you are looking to up the mental and physical benefits of your backyard, here are some ideas to get you started.


Backyards that feature some kind of outdoor activity are essential, and whether it is a pool, tennis court or putting green, having somewhere to get some sun and have fun is an essential component of boosting your wellbeing. Our Crossings at Meridianmodel has the perfect game-day atmosphere, with foosball, darts and a spacious entertaining area for your next watch party. A gridiron turf design highlights the yard, helping bring the tailgate to your backyard.

Our Verde River model hosts an indoor entertaining space with a billiards table and darts board that transitions seamlessly to an outdoor firepit and seating area, allowing guests the freedom to enjoy happy hour inside or conversation and stargazing outside.

Relaxing and Recharging

Time spent at a resort or spa is a great way to rest and recharge, and your backyard can also serve as a holistic retreat. At our Pradera Modern Ranch model, an intricately tiled pool is offset by a fountain feature and a number of black-and-white striped cabanas, bringing a Mediterranean flair to your outdoors.

If your idea of recharging is working up a sweat, our models at Sterling Grove and Flora at Morrison Ranch have designated workout rooms with stationary bikes, weights and plenty of room to get a workout in. Whether you are seasoned gym-goer or just trying to get in shape, being able to exercise without leaving the house is a great way to keep your mental and physical health in check.

Flex Your Artistic Side

You don’t have to be a world-class painter to enjoy the benefits of an outdoor art area, and whether drawing, painting or reading, a place to enjoy the weather and indulge your creative side can do wonders for your physical and mental wellbeing. Our model at Tapestry at Destination features a play area offset by a blackboard, perfect for families with kids to showcase their creativity. The plethora of outdoor covered and uncovered seating options at our Camelot Homes Bronco also gives owners the perfect place to get lost in a good book when the weather is nice.

As the #1 Phoenix Landscaping and Build Company, we have decades of experience giving Arizona homeowners exceptional spaces they can enjoy for years to come. Our design process ensures we can bring the ideas for your space to life.
