An elaborate pool scape with a serpentine waterslide proves the perfect spot for summertime fun

Kane Landscapes was tapped to create a backyard pool scape with entertaining in mind. The existing lot sloped toward the back of the house, causing poor drainage, so principal Josh Kane tackled this issue by designing deep trenches under the hardscape, behind retaining walls and at the edges of the beds and lawn. The trenches allow water to drain into an existing neighborhood storm-water collection pond.

A 32-foot waterslide is a focal point of the new landscape, where travertine clads the pool surround and patio. Limestone caps top stone retaining walls. A poolside structure houses a fireplace, kitchen, bar and lounge area.
