As summer approaches many people might be thinking of creating a backyard oasis and a new list of homes for sale with incredible backyards in Ontario might offer some inspiration.

These backyards aren’t your average postage stamp size plots — one even has a zip line above a private, spring-fed pond, and another has a tennis court tucked away on a wooded lot.

The new list from digital real estate platform Wahi includes five homes with massive and beautifully manicured backyards all in southern Ontario.

Here is the list:
