Some spaces put you at ease immediately. Led by the clients and their love for tasteful understated gardens, the choices in this yard seem obvious at every turn.

The L-shaped pool sits easily in the yard. Its stone clad stairs mirror those coming off the house, while the hot tub slips within the overall lines of the pool. The pool house sits at the pools’ end and acts as a visual anchor and the focal point. Pennsylvania flagstone surrounds the pool and carries up to the back door through raised beds and under a simple but handsome arbor.
