I was invited be a part of the design team Old Chester before the physical work was started on this new pool and pool house. The homeowner wanted the landscape features to work with the layout of the pool and the barn. I envisioned a large entertaining space and collaborated with the architect and pool builder to work out the placement and design details of the pergola and spa. Working with a larger team of architects, engineers, and contractors, an overall plan that satisfied the needs of an active family was developed that left a large lawn reserved for sports, corrected severe drainage issues, and incorporated gardens that were dog friendly and served to unify the finished structure and space and connect it to the property’s existing mature landscape.
