This project is a perfect example of NOT needing a 'big' backyard to fulfill your 'big' backyard dreams. We can come up with designs that fit any yard of any shape and size.
Entertainment was the driving theme behind this design. In addition to this theme, however, we also had other things to keep in mind starting with an existing shed in the yard. There was also an existing back deck and gazebo that were both resurfaced with a new colour scheme of composite decking that had to be taken into account. The homeowners were looking for a design where the pool and surrounding lounge areas needed to appear as if they had been there the whole time.
We wanted the pool to be the centre of attention but not with its size. Instead, the pool commands attention with several high-end features including a beautiful water feature wall complete with two sheer descent water curtains and a raised spillover spa both clad in a natural stone veneer. Entry to the pool is done beside the spa on large vinyl over steel steps that are great for easy access into the pool and great for lounging on. The finishing touch to help the pool command the attention it deserves is a smooth-finish concrete border done in a light grey which stands out from the rest of the deck.
By not dominating the backyard with a large pool, entertainment areas surrounding the pool were created. A firepit was built beside the existing back deck using the same natural stone veneer used on the spa and water feature wall. Integrating firepits into pool projects is becoming more popular because of the many different ways in which it can be used. It can be the perfect place to dry off after a swim for instance. It can also be a great place to sip a drink at night under the stars or to enjoy a snack at on a brisk autumn day. The possibilities are really endless.
There is also a sitting area close to the spa and pool stairs where you can sit and just enjoy the sights and sounds from the pool or you can work on your tan from the loungers in the area created beside the existing shed.
Whatever your entertaining needs, this beautiful backyard has it all!
