This relaxed, rustic home feels secluded with miles of surrounding land. Landscaping is kept to a minimum with shrubs and ornamental grasses to allow the energy-efficient home to be the main focal point.
This outdoor shower with wooden surround and greenery is ideal for everyone, including pets. Rinse off after a dip in the pool or use it for cleanup after the kids have an extra muddy play session in the backyard.
The goal for this rustic meets contemporary home is to create a cohesive design that unifies the entire space yet maintains the naturalistic environment. A pebble bed stream brings a soothing water feature to the outdoor space, while strategic plantings bring liveliness to the front yard.
The local flowers and plants that line the walkway to the front door add color and texture to the front yard. The outdoor spaces of the home are equipped with smart technology that monitors the weather and conditions in the area, with an irrigation controller that uses real-time weather data to automate watering and allow the user to turn on the sprinklers through a smart phone.
The designers incorporated this backyard pool into the surrounding rural landscape by bordering it on three sides with grass and planting wildflowers in a poolside garden. A rustic fence adds farmhouse-style charm. Meanwhile, a pool house sits on the other side of the patio.
