This project involved the transformation of a large open rear yard into a formal pool/spa combination. The owner wanted an open, clearly defined, yet private area that would appear to be an extension of the existing house. Although there was a considerable amount of soil being relocated, most of it remained on the site.
The plans were developed using the existing grades to benefit the desired effect and a great deal of attention was paid to how much cut and fill would be required to achieve the desired results at the minimum price. The rock contractor installed the rock walkways and the new fence to the same style as the existing work resulting in a seamless integration of the house and the yard.
All mechanical equipment was hidden behind a sunken area behind low rock walls, suppressing the noise and the visual disturbance of the equipment yet remaining easily accessibly.
