Stairs and a bridge lead from the pool deck over a koi pond to a more intimate patio at this Dallas home. Fountains lend to the English-courtyard feel of this private backyard while keeping the water in the koi pond refreshed.
The deck and patio span the length of the entire house so that almost every room has access to outdoor space with stunning views. In traditional Mediterranean style, the pool boasts stucco posts with fountains and diamond-patterned stone tile around the perimeter.
Making the most of a limited backyard space is this clever design that brings together a lap pool, a cascading wall fountain, a hot tub under a pergola (in the background), a limestone deck for sunbathing and entertaining and a privacy border.
After soaking up some sun on the deck, the owners and their kids can cool off in the pool. A blue tiled accent wall with three water fountains makes the space feel even more refreshing.
