Classic design elements result in a fresh, modern look in this original concept by Pool Environments. The clay color scheme is achieved through the similarly toned porcelain tile, Leuder Limestone coping and the wok planters along the left edge. Four inch channels filled with Mexican beach pebbles subtly divide the surface area into large stepping pads for additional visual interest.
Limestone coping surrounds the pool area of this modern backyard to create a stunning effect. HGTV fan RandyAngell added soft lighting around the pool to create a calm atmosphere, while the vibrant green stucco wall brings energy to the space. The fireplace creates a stark contrast against the deep blue water spouts and pool.
At the center of this luxurious private estate garden is a relaxing swimming pool, which features a sun shelf and an attached spa surrounded by bullnosed limestone coping and dimensional limestone paving. The stone pool terrace is lined with boxwood hedges to balance the soft textures of the trees and flowering shrubs. A custom timber beam pergola is anchored by stone piers and a low stone wall that defines the terrace space.
The location of the patio was determined so that the space has a great view of the lake from the pool as well as anywhere else on the patio. The pool itself is set about 18" above the home's lawn and travertine patio so as to allow seating along the coping, as well as add dimension to the space. To visually connect this space to the home, designers used the same Indiana limestone for the pool's coping as was used around the lower level of the home. Then, a travertine that complemented the stone was chosen for the floor of the patio.
