Treetop Oasis

Pristine Acres creates a dream multi-feature backyard retreat on a wooded Great Falls property

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.

Pristine Acres offers custom landscape design and construction. The firm has been in business for 14 years and employs a staff of 10 to execute 15 to 20 projects a year, ranging in price from $350,000 to $2,000,000.
