Backyard Improvements


Design a pool, outdoor eating area, shaded seating area and firepit.


We wanted to design a backyard paradise that felt like an extension of the home, not something you had to separate yourself from the home to enjoy. We wanted to work hand in hand with the client to design a covered trellis with TV area, fireplace wall, private firepit area, natural stone water feature with spillover into pool, hot tub with spillover, pool with layout shelf, retaining walls for planting beds and a rainwater harvesting system.


Our design enabled us to nestle all of these features in without disturbing the oak trees. We were able to keep the pool close to the home, while providing access on both sides, even across the hot tub and water feature spillovers to access the firepit and TV areas. We were able to match the heavy timber on the home and the sandstone on the home. The deck is texture stamped like a river bottom and stained to match.


Unique features like freeformed textured concrete firepit seating, raised pedestal stepping stones in the pool, a fire ring in the water feature, river bottom textured monolithic coping and a sunken rainwater tank thet circulates to the yard made this a one of a kind project. Our Intellitouch 8 remote controller can run all aspects of the pool and hardscaping remotely.
