Gold Winner:
Pathway to Heaven
Most of us would be happy with a backyard containing a pool, a patio, maybe a cabana and bar area, and a couple of speakers so we could listen to some tunes while we relaxed and entertained. Not the owners of this Southern California playground. Their backyard entertainment is so extensive, they need a golf cart path to link the 3.5 acres of fun.

Silver Winner:

There’s no reason to reserve a room at a fancy resort when you’ve got a backyard like this to enjoy. Music blankets the entire grounds, and colorful accent lights play up ornamental trees, fountains, water gardens and a spectacular infinity-edge swimming pool.

Bronze Winner:
