When they're not vacationing at the world's best hotels [1], you can bet that once Spring rolls around, celebrities spend downtime relaxing in their outdoor spaces. That's because they're just as envy-inducing as their bedrooms [2] or kitchens [3]. Whether they're overlooking the beach or smack-dab in the middle of the city, none of them disappoint!

Patrick Dempsey

Talk about McDreamy! At his Malibu, CA, estate [8], Patrick Dempsey [9] converted a riding area into a space for one of his wife's passions: organic gardening. Flowers, herbs, and vegetables thrive in the raised beds, which were constructed from reclaimed scaffolding.

Katy Perry

It's hard to imagine why Katy Perry [19] would have ever wanted to sell her Hollywood mansion [20] after seeing her backyard. Surrounded by plants and trees, the pool has a lush lagoon vibe.

George Clooney

Did you know Cindy Crawford [24] and George Clooney [25] share a Mexican compound [26]? Like Cindy's courtyard that connects to different parts of the house, George's comes with the addition of some netted, fisherman-style pendants that illuminate the space at night.

Khloé Kardashian

When Khloé Kardashian recently bought Justin Bieber's Calabasas, CA, mansion [35], we bet the backyard was a huge factor. Imagine all the parties she'll have with the large swimming pool and adjoining guesthouse.

Robert Pattinson

After seeing the Los Angeles home [37] that Twilight star Robert Pattinson [38] sold to Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory, we couldn't help but be jealous of the backyard with room for multiple seating and greenery. Seriously, how spacious is it?

Reese Witherspoon

As soon as we peeked inside Reese Witherspoon [42]'s former ranch in Ojai, CA [43], the back patio with a cozy seating area and beautiful setting caught our eye.

Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann

Can you say "stunning?" The Malibu Beach, CA, bungalow [45] that Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann share overlooks the Pacific, and their outdoor entertaining space is just as killer as the view.

Jamie Kennedy

Pool and hot tub? Check. Cabana with a bathroom and shower? Double check. A thick wall of bamboo for privacy, a built-in bar, and a dining area? Seems like the Los Angeles backyard that once belonged to Jamie Kennedy [47] is our dream come true.

When Ryan Phillippe listed his Hollywood Hills home [51], we fell for the pool area and its pretty potted plants. The canopy touch isn't bad either!

David Koepp

Take some inspiration from screenwriter David Koepp's former New York home [53] — we love the idea of positioning a few large potted topiaries around the patio and yard.

Zac Efron

Sure, Zac Efron's previous bachelor pad [55] came with an infinity pool, but he probably spent just as much time on the deck thanks to its open views of the Hollywood Hills.
