This project was designed for clients looking to increase their curb appeal and up their outdoor game.  In the front yard, foundation plantings received special care with the addition of new spring and summer blooming shrubs accented by colorful masses of perennials.  An informal allée of trees provides shade along the driveway and funnels views towards the entrance of the home.

 

A curving set of natural stone steps offers access to the backyard, which boasts additional amenities including a pool and pool house, a firepit with seat walls, a large playground area, and access to the upper deck complete with a fireplace and bar/grill.  

 

The pool house hosts a series of intimate spaces including a full kitchen, bath, and living areas. Its bifold doors open directly to the pool area and blur the lines between inside and out. Additional plantings offer a backdrop for these new amenities and provide plenty of privacy for relaxation.
