This elegant backyard features a custom gunite swimming pool slide with custom rock waterfalls. .... The slide structure and steps were built using concrete blocks on the outside with stone veneer, stone treads, and the slide was "stiff" concrete poured over rebar with a smooth finish.
The adjacent built-in spa is constructed of gunite concrete and incorporates the same tile work as the pool. This spa includes bench seating that wraps 360° and ample massage jets, providing generous room and bubbles for several guests to enjoy.
While staying true to the architecture of the house, modern design elements were incorporated as well. The barbecue enclosure is veneered with limestone in a subway tile cut, while a trellis added to the garage adds shade over the outdoor kitchen area. Due to the limited space of the backyard, the original backyard did not provide adequate lounging space for the homeowners. A dry deck is added within the pool perimeter, using lightweight blocks to ensure no unnecessary weight was put on the existing gunite shell.
