Several showcases of trending features in and around the backyard oasis

1. Elemental

Design elements for this backyard escape are inspired by earth, water, and fire. This pool includes a pebble interior, sun ledge with ledge loungers, umbrella sleeves in the pool, Laminar jets, fire bowls, cantilever umbrellas, and a fire table.

2. Critically Cool

This project entailed renovating an existing pool by replacing the concrete pool deck with pervious decking and installing a new walkway out of IPE deck to comply with critical area lot coverage restrictions (the deck allows water to pass through when it rains). Landscaping in the rear of the property was kept natural, with large swaths of color to accent the natural environment and waterfront.
