This family wanted a natural, wilderness-style backyard complete with natural stone fire pit, a spa, a freeform swimming pool and waterfall. Their backyard now looks like a mountain resort, complete with deer grazing on the hill. The multi-level waterfall splits into several spillways as it cascades toward the swimming pool. A cast concrete bridge stamped to look like wood planks crosses over the lap pool. Colorful planting pockets soften the hardscaped areas.
Michigan landscape designers Zaremba & Company convert the freeform pool into a rectangular pool that sits perpendicular to the house, rather than parallel with it, creating a majestic symmetry to the yard. The extensive remodel spotlights an elevated spa at the head of the pool.
This tropical backyard features a rope swing from an artificial tree, a large slide that takes you underground before you enter the pool, a large grotto for staying cool, a rope bridge over the pool, a spa and a tanning ledge.
The family-friendly slide becomes an adventure as it wraps around the grotto and is hidden behind natural stone and planters. A raised spa area and palm tree landscaping create a resort-style escape for endless outdoor fun and relaxation.
This organically shaped pool is the central feature in a tropical backyard. Key elements include a suspended bridge, artificial tree with rope swing, waterfall, and artificial turf throughout the space.
A pebble interior, natural stone boulders, freeform design and hurricane palms create a tropical ambiance in this backyard getaway. The palm trees are wrapped in decorative lights, illuminating the pool area for nighttime outdoor entertaining.
