The extravagant courtyard features a Grecian style pool with water features splashing into the sides and connected to a hot tub. Large shrubs and trees act as privacy walls, while a dining area is covered by the second story patio. Comfortable lounge seating is poolside.
Adding statues creates dimension in front of flat retaining walls, says Linda Castle, owner of Decorated Designs, based in Marietta, Ga. She selected a series of Grecian figures that represent the four seasons and placed them on pedestals nestled among greenery against a wall in a pool area. The statues are iron, but were painted to be rust-resistant.
Flanked by two Grecian-style statues, the spa in the pool and surrounding tanning area feels downright regal. Shallow semi-circles with bubbling fountains offer peaceful ambient sound and are the perfect spot to cool off without completely submerging.
