We designed the proportions of this pool area to fit the size of this sprawling property. The idea was to keep the pool area simple and let the rolling green grass surrounding it frame this beautiful space.

Pondering on what to do with their adjoining lot, our client hired us to create an amazing outdoor living space complete with a pool, spa, fire place, sit up bar and lawn area. Using classic bluestone accented with crisp gray Fond Du Lac stone and brick elements, we created this one of a kind environment. Pallets of green and white plantings border the spaces to soften the edges and provide privacy.
This once flat backyard is now a beautiful living space complete with a sit up bar, pool, fire side retreat and lush landscaping. For the covered space, elements of wood, tile and stone were combined using the perfect color tones to create a comfortable ambience. Just beyond its reach lies a clean lined pool perfect for cooling off on a hot summer day. Surrounding everything is lush, yet simple, landscaping to soften the space and provide privacy.

The landscape and outdoor living spaces of this home fuse nicely with its French style architecture. The signature piece of the outdoor living space is this four sided infinity edged pool we designed. Unlike traditional pool coping, we used rows of hand chiseled stone to create an interesting border. Also quite unique are the 10,000+ sage plants we planted on the hillside to emulate the rolling lavender fields of France.
With their house abutting three acres of overgrown grass and brush, this client wondered if the space could be turned into a world class entertainment area. With the wish for a pool house and clay tennis court, we laid out a magnificent plan that incorporated all of the desired spaces perfectly balanced off the architecture of the house. Clean hedges accented with white hydrangea guide you from space to space. At the end, you find yourself standing on a tournament grade clay tennis court. Hidden behind the tennis court, lies one and a half acres of beautifully manicured grass perfect for yard games.

With the former outdoor setup being completely segregated from its side yard, our client tasked us with designing a space that allowed full use of the property. Working around an existing sports court, we developed a jaw dropping, yet functional, living area. The core of the space showcases a covered lanai with a walk up bar and seating overlooking the pool. Magnificent stone work blended with carefully selected plantings and fire elements bring the entire area together.
This stunning limestone home needed proper softness to balance its strength. Using proper layering of plant materials and an assortment of hardscape elements, we were able to dissipate the homes architecture into the surrounding land. The result is a stunning pallet that frames every component of this estate.
This once unusable back was sculpted into a beautiful living space. On the upper terraces, a covered lanai provides a comfortable retreat from the sun. Complete with a seating area, large screen television and sit up bar, even a rainy day can be enjoyable outside. To the South, a casual fire table and comfortable chairs provide a perfect spot for after dinner drinks. All of the spaces provide a spectacular view of the pristine pool area.

The owners of this sprawling estate wanted a beautifully flowing landscape that incorporated the elements important to them. Once a vacant field, an apple orchard now layers in the back of the property with a sports court neatly nestled in. A large lawn panel then fills the space up to the pool where hand chiseled stone walls with soft plantings abutting them create a perfect ambience around the pool.
