Pool Renovation -
This Bernardsville, New Jersey garden
was completed in the Summer 2011
and features new pool decking, a lounge
area, and access to the home.
The prior pool decking consisted of outdated concrete paving and uneven brick patios. Dear Garden Associates replaced all of the pool decking with thermalled flagstone which gives a more refined, clean appearance. A quad of Tree Lilacs provides seasonal interest for a formal seating area that anchors the end of the pool. Existing Boxwood hedges are transplanted to the sides of the garden defining the pool area from the surrounding yard. Stepping stone paths lead through the flowering gardens and provide access to the pool sheds, connecting the structures to the overall architectural space. An additional path of stepping stones and steps gives access from the home to the pool where the homeowner does not need to walk through the grass.
