The Zen-Like Outdoor Workspace

Even a small backyard can be a beautiful outdoor workspace, as today’s featured workspace shows. An empty backyard was transformed by the folks at HGTV into an inspirational place to think and write.


Small spaces are often ideal for streamlined Asian-influenced designs. This outdoor working space boasts a water feature spanning the back wall, a rustic wooden desk, and a deck outlined by river rock.

Although it’s best suited for more temperate climates, you could set up a seasonal outdoor workspace like this for bringing your laptop outside when the weather is nice. It may make for a refreshing change of pace from your indoor office.

  • I love the idea of a small cosy retreat for just you and your laptop. I live on a yacht and space is somewhat restricted. We have lived aboard our Yacht Gamecock for over eleven years. The only way tp retreat is to take the laptop up forward and sit Yoga style on a cushion. You can then look around and make yourself believe that the whole world belongs to you. This exercise keeps me sane and ensures I continue the yachting life. I love it
