Some of our favorite backyard swimming pool designs from past seasons.
After getting a referral from their neighbors, this family called Southview to make their small backyard into an outdoor living space for fun, friends, and family.
Their backyard wishlist included: a hot tub, an outdoor living room, an in-ground trampoline, a paver patio, and a larger deck for entertaining.
For the kids, an in-ground trampoline for bouncing. For dad, a putting green with synthetic turf. (No maintenance!)
The second story deck has been expanded and the stairs relocated to create more space for dining and sunbathing. The deck boards are stained cedar and will last for twenty years, depending on maintenance.
Our Design-Build Process
Connected to the walk-out basement, this paver patio living room and spa is the perfect place to unwind. Sinking the hot tub into the ground improves access, flow, and sight lines. Phantom screens can be pulled down to keep out mosquitos and flies. Look out at the verdant evergreens, or draw the curtains for more privacy.
The paver patio extends from underneath the deck just enough for a few Adirondack chairs and a mobile wood-burning fire pit.
In the hands of a skilled design-build team it doesn't take much to turn a plain backyard into a unique space that you will never want to leave. Reach out to our award-winning team for a free consultation and take the first step towards creating your own beautiful backyard.
