Coastal Contempo Remodel / by Brooke

This past summer we have had the opportunity to revamp a backyard that we landscaped the first time in 2009. This great family of 8 decided it was time for a pool! Here are some of the things they were hoping for:

  • Resort atmosphere
  • A medium sized pool with a sun deck
  • A fire pit area with bench seating
  • A large patio for gatherings & dining with ample seating
  • Great outdoor lighting
  • An open grass area for play & a trampoline
  • Modern planting areas
  • A wrought iron fence
  • Privacy block on the east and west sides of the yard
  • Challenge: Keep all the pool equipment inconspicuous!

I drew much of the inspiration for this project from the following:

3D renderings of my design for the pool/lounge area

This model includes a fire pit area with permanent seating and wall lights. (8) annual planters with up lighting on each planter and a decorative wall on the south side of the pool using a white ledger stone.

I will be sharing my mood board with the details soon; plants, hard scape materials, lighting fixtures and so on.
