Vision

The owners wanted someone to help them breathe new life into their 30-year-old suburban back yard that included a decaying swimming pool and a tired interloc patio, while embracing the mature treescape that surrounds the property.

Design

The conversation started with a desire to simply design a new landscape that would wrap around the existing pool. We quickly realized the existing pool needed replacing, so the design included a custom concrete pool surrounded by a multi-level landscape that separates each space: the pool, the patio, the outdoor kitchen and the garden. The mature cedar hedge beautifully wraps the back yard while providing much needed privacy. The front of the home was designed to match the back.

Challenges

Our team was tasked with preserving the existing trees — not just during the build but for years to come. This required meticulous care while digging and building the retaining walls that support the elevations.
