The Daily Dish Backyard Envy

The Manscapers’ Instagram Is So Chock Full of Inspiration, We Don’t Even Know Where to Start

The Backyard Envy exterior designers' work is so beautiful that we’re ready to start planting our backyards right now.

By Courtney Thompson

Backyard Envy is of course a television show, but it’s also a real state of mind that we here at Home & Design perpetually find ourselves in. Maybe we’re envious of our neighbor’s expansive backyard with sooo much potential, or maybe we’re envious of how an influencer on social media finds planting tulip bulbs to be a totally joyous experience. (FYI: It’s not joyous at all, it’s back-breaking, in our opinion.)

How to Watch

Catch up on Backyard Envy on the Bravo App.

The good thing about envy, though, is that once you stop feeling sorry for yourself and decide to take action, you can turn all those things you want so, so badly into inspiration! After recently perusing the Manscapers’ Instagram page, we found loads of inspiration. Below are our favorite ideas, fabrications, installations, and just plain gorgeous stuff that has us feeling motivated to turn our own outdoor spaces into everything we want and more.
