Backyards can sometimes be a bit boring and are often just grass, but these three homes have transformed their backyards into spaces where fun can be had.
First up is this home that has a chess set built into the landscaped yard. It’s just off the main living area of the home and a small covered patio lets people have a place to watch the game being played.

Next up is this home in California that overlooks the ocean. It has a built-in bocce court, ideal for enjoying the water views and entertaining guests at the same time.

And lastly, in the backyard of this home in Vancouver, Canada, is a mini soccer field that’s slightly raised from the rest of the outside space and perfect for kids to be running around on.
