From a fire pit to a hammock, these backyards say outdoor entertaining — and relaxing.

A Family Fire Pit

For her Connecticut property, designer Bonnie Edelman carefully crafted a fire pit. “My parents always encouraged us: invest in your own property, not in country clubs,” says her husband, John. “So till bedtime it’s for s’mores and family bonding.
