Night & Day
This complete outdoor makeover by Betz Pools has everything you could desire poolside. By day a perfect spot to take in the sunshine, and by night with the built-in firepit glowing, a relaxing lounge to spend the evening. The linear style of the pool mates perfectly to the style of the homeowners recently renovated house, but natural elements including plantings and a spring-like water feature soften the edges of the landscape.
The highlight of this backyard by Gerald Grieve Landscape Group is the view of the lake, so the patio plays up to that feature. Contemporary style furniture is at its best against elegant stone patios, set to relax while enjoying the view. Dramatic elements like the built-in linear fireplace, and a large water feature add interest, especially after the sun goes down. This patio is perfectly sewn in to the home, adding a true extension of living space and seamless transition to the outdoors.
Room to Play
This expansive pool and entertaining space by Ian McClelland Associates Ltd. is unique with its multi-tiered approach. Separate, but flowing perfectly into each other, poolside lounging, outdoor kitchen, living space, hot tub and dining make this landscape feel like multiple outdoor rooms. Towering, mature trees set the backdrop to a textured stone wall with waterfall detail that acts as the view from the “dining room”, while a few steps up in the “kitchen,” the view becomes that across the infinity edge pool. Integrated lighting, covered living space, and fireplace make this a landscape, with plenty of room to play.
