What was the scope of the project?
The clients’ vision was a backyard oasis with an “in the trees” appearance, aided by the naturally steep slope of their property. They wanted a complete outdoor living space featuring a full-size pool with an auto cover; a pavilion with a fireplace, storage and a bathroom; a lounging area; and a fire pit.
List the hardscape materials and plantings used.
Fiberon composite decking, silver travertine and flagstone. We also selected native plants that require minimal maintenance.
What challenges did the project pose?
The biggest challenge was in designing and constructing the pool and pavilion, as they had to be built 10 feet above ground. Because of the extremely sloped site, custom structural engineering was required to build and hold the weight of the pool and surrounding design. The finished landscape is breathtaking.
