Contemporary Pool and Deck -
Installed during the Spring of 2010 this
garden includes a new terrace and deck
spaces surrounded by walls with a water
feature, new pool decking, plantings and
lighting. The goals of the project were to
create a raised living space as an extension of the house and simplify the lines of the pool while creating seating areas with plant materials for interest and sense of space.

For the dining portion of the terrace, Ipe decking was selected to reflect the wood flooring in the home and for a softer, warmer feel than the surrounding stone. The change in flooring material and design of the walls creates a sense of rooms to the various areas of the terrace. Texture, color and fragrance provided by the plantings, complimented by the sound and movement of water, create a joy for the senses throughout the year.
