All of us truly love to enjoy the outside, the nature. Sometimes we are lucky enough to enjoy a nice cup of tea on our back porch overlooking the backyard. It’s one of the most serene places a house has.

So, we compiled the ten most gorgeous billionaire backyards for you to feast upon. Here we go.
