Designer brain –

When a client comes to you with a long wish list of landscape elements, your designer brain kicks into gear and is up for the challenge! It’s like a jigsaw puzzle. You try to fit all the pieces together seamlessly, meanwhile creating a flow throughout.

This particular client asked to incorporate the following: A pool with a shallow and deep zone, a diving board, a raised spa, an outdoor kitchen with a grill and sink, a lounge TV area, a raised fire pit, and multiple entertainment areas.

What a wonderful project to dive into this fall. After getting the design and permits completed, the pool installation can start as soon as the weather warms up next year. SketchUp is a fantastic tool to really get a sense of the space and to see if all the landscape elements area working together to make an outstanding backyard.

Let’s check out the design –
Close the house is the outdoor kitchen along with the main entertainment area and outdoor dining table. All the elements are centered off the house’s chimney.

North of the pool’s tanning ledge is the raised outdoor spa. This spa is 8’ in diameter and will comfortably fit up to 6 to 7 adults.

The raised fire pit with a curved back seat wall is the destination zone. Also, there is still plenty of lawn space east of the fire pit for outdoor sport activities and play. All around there is a space for everyone to enjoy!

Do any of these areas spark your interest? Check out website and give us a call.

Refreshing swims in your own backyard may be in your near future as well!
