Innovative Landscape solutions

Kane Landscapes, Inc., conjures resort-style living around an expansive backyard pool scape

Kane Landscapes, Inc., provides landscape architecture and maintenance, focusing on the art of design as well as on quality construction and comprehensive care. The company serves Northern Virginia, DC and Potomac, Maryland.

What did the project involve?
Clients asked us to create an outdoor oasis that would be inviting for their family of four but where they could comfortably entertain their large, extended family when they came to visit.

What challenges did you face?
The area had veins of rock and marine clay, causing poor drainage at the rear of the property. We did a test excavation and adjusted the location and shape of the pool to accommodate the circumstances. We also installed 100 tons of gravel in the pool scape per county requirements and added an extensive drainage system under and around the pool.

Describe plantings and/or materials.
The pool decking, lower patio and driveway accents are Techo-Bloc pavers, tying the landscape together. The steps, wall and pool coping are bluestone and the floor and deck, with custom composite railings, are made of Trex. The pavilion ceiling is stained cedar.
