“Phase I ‘Teardrop“ is a large gracious design that encompasses a new swimming pool we did not specify. Our goal was to make the pool less obvious and at the same time encourage the expansive views from the more elevated home. Details involve a random stone slab seating area about existing trees, random stone walkways and substantial planting that provides enclosure and heightened four-season interest. The planting of the teardrop is bold and dramatic, textural and colorful, but highly organized. Plants are carefully selected to create and enhance views and define circulation.
