Love the steps in the grass ! How do you keep the water from the slope from going into the pool ? Thank you

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.

@americandreamdyn Thank you - We used a linear trench drain at the pool edge.

where did the awnings come from? - Are they custom fabricated or specified from a manufacturers catalog?

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.

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....
