Classic Grounds

The challenge in this project was to place a pool and a formal lawn on an irregularly angled site. We were able to achieve this by creating garden spaces parallel to the house and allowing the garden to fade off into the corners with large trees so as to minimize the angular nature of the space.

A further balance was achieved by blending a green tiled pool with a large lawn bordered by deep flower beds to provide a sense of harmony. Corsica travertine is used as both the pool surround and the luxurious deep steps into the pool, maintaining a simple, elegant feel. Tortoise granite cobblestones have been used for the driveway to complement the design and colour palette from the front to the rear of the house and garden.
