Love the steps in the grass ! How do you keep the water from the slope from going into the pool ? Thank you
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
A long strip of drain in front of the bottom step.
Of course you'll have to figure out where you want the water to drain to.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Inspired Designs for Sloped Lots
Here some steps set into a grassy slope are picked up in the pool itself, allowing to to move gradually and gracefully from house into water.

Use the natural slope: Walls are not always required but they will help create usable spaces on a non-user-friendly slope. Where the site allows, retaining the slope is a solution that is often overlooked; a well-defined lawn slope with the option of an isolated set of steps in the middle (as in this home) or a sloping garden bed can be a beautiful as well as cost-effective method. Utilising the slope also creates a more inviting design feature that opens up the upper or lower areas instead of separating them

I wonder if we can dig down (2 steps) a bit (to walk down) to the pool. ?? Then put flag stone at the bottom... then build the pool level to the patio and have the base of the pool as stone.. with a ledge pouring over into a trough.. with rocks... ? (like up above us)...then walk 2 steps up to the right and have the pool level with the grass....
