By creating different levels of patio space, Scenic Landscaping was able to create an upper dining area with a kitchen overlooking the pool. The custom kitchen was built to fit the smaller raised patio space. Using bright appliances and stonework helped it to blend seamlessly into its surroundings.
The natural stone hot tub surrounding matches the stone used for the retaining wall. Above the wall the hillside is planted with ornamental grass for a beautiful natural texture and color. The hot tub is raised from the main pool patio with access from clean cut concrete steps.
This wooded retreat originally started as a small pool design but grew into an encompassing project that includes a L-shaped pool, hot tub, fire feature, water feature and raised deck with a pergola. With so many distinct areas, the goal was to create a cohesive design that unified the entire space yet maintained the naturalistic environment. An earthy palette combines with repetition of key materials, like weathering steel, ipe wood and stone.
A new classical order was introduced to the existing disorganized and dysfunctional backyard of this La Jolla home. the garden's new black bottom pool with its mirror-like surface becomes the central focal point and entertainment space. intimate seating areas ,raised vegetable beds, along with a bocci and tennis court were organized with the use of thick stone walls and linear garden paths. mature specimen trees were preserved and laced to create a timeless feeling for this outdoor oasis.
