builder: PSW Real Estate

pool installation: SS Pool & Spa

This small backyard is packed with thoughtfully scaled-programming. In order to fit a pool in this steeply sloped backyard, the design needed to accommodate the existing circular planting bed and concrete patio at the backdoor. We loved the idea of a mini-Barton Springs to lounge about on the grass in the back corner, how the deck nestles into the board form patio by the pool, and how the existing porch feels sunken and inviting. The clients knew it was important to consider the entire plan for the yard before installing a pool so that opportunities aren't lost by arbitrary placement. We were able to surround the pool with appropriately-sized planting beds and include seat height drop from concrete to deck through the design.
