Ready to spring into style? Sam's Club's latest endeavor has us — and our backyards — covered, and ready to embrace the new season. The fan-favorite retailer teamed up with a handful of designers to carefully curate a handful of pop-up shops (or models) of backyards. 

Nate Berkus gave New York City a reason to get excited for spring with his garden-inspired model. The sleek set-up was impeccable for any patio or terrace, filled with gorgeous greenery and beautiful blankets — and for those looking to overhaul a larger setting, you're in luck. 

Becki Owens keeps the good times rolling with her reimagined 'Los Angeles' backyard, which is ideal for family gatherings.
