This exterior space was meant to be a very manicured and well-balanced area. Loungers on the pool's baja step combine with other groupings of furniture to let the entertaining flow from area to area. The space is not very large, so the design works to maximize it as much as possible with appropriate accent lighting.
The entire pool is raised out of ground 12 inches providing additional seating space along the exterior. Two fire pits sit on each side of a simple waterfall for a mesmerizing combination of natural elements.
Pool Environments frames the pool with oversized stone slabs and a band of Mexican beach pebble, giving the pool a sleek, geometric look. The undergrowth is cleared, allowing an overhanging Bois d’Arc to become a focal point at the far end of the pool.
