The site you posted is made using the Squarespace Julia Template.

These templates allow for sitewide background images without any code,  

  • Adirondack
  • Avenue
  • Aviator - The info page also supports a page-specific background image
  • Five
  • Forte
  • Momentum
  • Montauk
  • Native

Here is the Avenue demo site and you can remove the name avenue and replace it with any of the above to see the template. I am an Avenue user and have used full bleed background images in the past. 


Here is the julia demo:


Julia will work because it is a member of the Montauk family of templates. Here is the guide to add a site wide background image. 


If you wish to use the Greenwich template this code should work in custom css after uploading image to file manager and capturing the full url of its location.   

background-image: url(place full url for image locaton here);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-size: cover;
background-position: 50% 10%;
