Lauren and Ben Build Their Dream Backyard
When The Bachelor's Ben Higgins, 28, bought his Denver home in 2014, the backyard was "a ginormous mountain of dirt," says his fiancee Lauren Bushnell, 27. So the pair, who met on the show's 20th season in 2016, jumped at the chance to team up with Birch Lane to redo the space and create an outdoor living area made for entertaining.
Bushnell has curated a special sale of her favorite home finds on the site, which you can shop here beginning Friday May 5!

Room for Friends
Higgins and Bushnell agreed they wanted their uninspiring plot to be a haven for entertaining. "We want our backyard to be a place we can hang out with friends all summer long. For both of us, that was the number one thing."

The Gathering Place
"Lauren and Ben's backyard had ample room to create everything she was looking for," says Birch Lane founder Meredith Mahoney, who collaborated on the design. Among their must-haves were "a cozy lounge seating area, a bar cart for entertaining and a fire pit area for making s'mores."

Two Green Thumbs
As for who's taking care of their lush new landscape, the couple has the division of labor down. "I love taking care of my plants," says Bushnell. "So while Ben's really doing the dirty work, I’ll be like watering my plants . . . and maybe enjoying an iced tea," she adds with a laugh.

"I absolutely love the couch and the living set. I love anything wicker outdoors," says Bushnell. The light gray set is complemented by patterned throw pillows and an indoor-outdoor rug. "That’s really where we’ve found ourselves spending the most time, whether it's having our morning coffee or reading a book."
