Spiers Residence Pool Environment
Note the ornamental grass on the side of the pool deck. How it softens the space
While this pool is rectangular in shape. The pool side planter and planting beds shown here gives you a sense of how plantings can upscale a pool area with "lushness" and "intamacy"
The large natural stones would fit in with your site beautifully. Here the grass is in-between the stones adding a lush green texture to the design. Also note the plantings accented by landscape lighting.
This pool is different in structure than yours however the pool side planter though done differently shows off plantings that add color and many of these speices grow well here in Colorado
Here is a pool with grass up to the pool coping on one side. Note the planting beds between the house and pool integrating the separate spaces together. I want to do this at your Owl lane residence to intrgrate the pool and make it feel as though it has always belonged with the house.
The plantings shown here illustrate another style of plant palette that can be achieved around the pool.
With this house notice how the grass and plant beds enhance the pool terrace with a lush garden feel.
Here is a pool with stone pool deck with grass surround. NO garden feel.
Another example of grass surround for the pool deck.
This raised bed gives enclosure , texture and intimacy. We douls do the same thing with rolling berms and accent boulders.
Here is a pool with both grass surround and planting beds to add color depth and interest.
This pool is two house to the west of yours. Beautiful landscape this is the view from her deck. J&S constructed.
Showing the integration of pool landscape with the surrounding native borrowed landscape. I would plan to do this with your planting beds as well.
Dry creek bed early spring color transformed a rock ditch into a show stopping entrance
Spring color later in the season yields to fall grasses and winter hues that keep this blooming all season.
HOA renovation converted rock islands to community hot spots where neighbors and children hand out.
Custom water elements cut from quartzite stone and inset into a composite deck up scaled the entrance to this home. Which before had a driveway lead up to the front door.
