Pool Terrace -
Completed in the Fall of 2011,
this Lawrenceville, New Jersey
garden features a new pool with
terracing and a fire pit.
Dear Garden Associates coordinated with the homeowner and the pool contractor to locate the pool within an under utilized portion of the back yard. By working dry-stack stone retaining walls and plantings with the pool and terrace design, the view of a nearby sanitary mound disappears. New trees and shrubs also help block views of neighboring homes while the layout of the new flagstone terrace takes advantage of the homes more appealing views. By including a fire pit as part of the design, the homeowners can come out of the heated pool and still enjoy the terrace on colder nights.
