The view of the pool area from the rear terrace. The planting positions allow peeks into the water oasis beyond and conceal it in winter months.

Tou enter the pool area and the outdoor kitchen, pool house with a screened in living area. and exterior bar nestle into the exiting trees. The bluestone veneered spa overflows like a waterfall into the 'pond like' pool.
The client wanted a naturalistic pool so we placed it into the hillside and kept the Triad pool deck on one side and planted the other with naturalizing material and beautiful dogwood trees. To enhance the spa experience I placed grasses and similar material up against it. Natural stones boarder the pool edge and a dive rock was installed.
The pool deck widens to accommodate seating and tables for gatherings of friends and family.
