Some may call it a backyard getaway. We call this poolside patio with a waterfall one of our “Signature Projects”. What is a Signature Project? We build one or two every year, a masterpiece that includes the artistic touches and architectural details that are our passion! We first met Jeff & Pam in 2013 when we were tasked with building a small patio with a fire pit, as well as some walls around their new deck. When designing the original patio, we included an opening into the back yard “just in case we ever build a pool”.
Almost 6 years later, the pool arrived! We designed the entire project, specifying pool placement and elevation to perfectly mesh with the original patio. A custom stainless steel spa with tile trim was integrated, carefully designed to allow views of the pool while enjoying the waterfalls into the pool. To meet stormwater requirements, the patio utilizes permeable pavement. Creative patio design allowed the pool overflow and runoff from the pool house to be stored under the patio as part of the stormwater management plan.
Lighting and fire were a core part of the project. Fire features were integrated into the waterfalls, and a fire boulder provides the perfect place to relax by the pool. Jeff says “The experience of sitting around the fire boulder out in the open... it’s totally different than around the fire pit in our patio. We were out there with friends, and we suddenly realized it was almost midnight! The hours just melt away around the fire. “ The spa provides another place to unwind, and with a gas heater can be ready for use within minutes. LED lighting is included throughout to ensure the safety of guests and extend the use of the patio well into the evening hours.
This backyard getaway was built to bring family and friends together and make memories last. The patio design met all those goals and more, and the family was already using the pool before the project was completed!
