Here we have another simple backyard landscaping design that really works well. I like this spot because it makes me feel like a kid again. I can easily imagine the whole family out here eating hot dogs after grilling them up, with the adults chatting and the kids running around. The tree and fence are very nice, and this backyard is actually quite spacious. This is because they went with a minimalist design and left it as open as possible. Had they loaded it up with design elements the yard may have ended up feeling tiny. That sort of decision depends on what you want form your yard.
