This elevated patio is grounded by a strong horizontal wall with a see-through fireplace on the east end. This element helps to highlight the large Palladian inspired window. A water element on the south side relates to the view of the river beyond at the lower level of the property.
Build a natural oasis - Who says you have to choose timber decking or stone paving to go around your pool? The trees and rocks surrounding this pool will transport you into the arms of Mother Nature the minute you head outside.
A backyard paradise with limited access and a client wanting a fun pool for the kids, but with an adult feel..The solution was to craft a vessel that would sit within the multiple terraced gardens, that were created with dry stacked stone.
Backyard Patio and Pool With Textured Concrete Deck
Designer Scott Cohen of The Green Scene varies the flooring materials of this backyard patio to add visual interest as well as to help create separate outdoor rooms. The covered seating area features Sweetwater flagstone, while stone-textured concrete is used in the lounging area beside the pool's Baja shelf.
A neutral, stacked stone wall along with the surrounding landscape creates an exquisite, secluded outdoor space. Terrace gardens make the pool area feel comfortable while allowing a flat space for the kids up top.
Surrounding the pool designers added three terraces including a barbecue and dining area. These spaces were designed as if they were indoor spaces, with mismatched furniture sets and decor accents, to add to the glamour and comfort to the outdoor lounge areas.
Old World Poolside Pergola With Custom Fire Torches
Designer Scott Cohen of The Green Scene found a craftsman in Mexico that follows the Old World technique of hand carving stonework, and he commissioned four fire torches to display on the pergola's columns. Cohen says he loves to use fire in hardscapes since it creates lighting and a relaxed resort-style ambience.
