When the weather warms up, there’s no better place to relax and enjoy the outdoors than a waterfront garden room. With the tranquil sounds of  the ocean or lake on one side and a beautifully manicured garden filled with lush plantings on the other, a waterfront garden is the perfect place to enjoy some quiet time to yourself!

Are you craving a space that combines the joys of water views with a garden’s bounty? Get inspired by these waterfront garden room design ideas:

Although there are hardscapes aplenty in this waterfront garden room, it still has plenty of green space offered by strategically placed plantings. The trees and flowers are planted right up to the water’s edge for maximum impact. An umbrella provides a bit of shade for alfresco dinners, while traditional light posts create a romantic glow at night.

This garden room in the Pacific Northwest is perched on top of this home’s roof, but that doesn’t stop it from maximizing planting space along with water views. What’s more, this green roof is eco-friendly, helping reduce storm water runoff, reducing home energy costs, improving air quality and more.

Perfect for entertaining, this Chicago backyard has something for everyone. An open lawn for kids and pets to run around, a screened porch for bug-free relaxation and a fire pit for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, as well as keeping warm on early spring nights. Combined with lots of seasonal color, this outdoor room makes for a stunning lakeside retreat.

Don’t live on the water? Create your own waterfront garden room with a water feature such as a pond, pool or fountain. This backyard pond habitat and surrounding landscape proves that good things come in small packages. Built right up to the hardscaped seating area, this pond offers the tranquility of a larger body of water along with fun options, such as lily pads and koi fish.
