Firepit and pool

The design collaboration of the entire team, Client, Architect, Landscape Architect, Interior, Structural, and Builder from start to finish on this project, paid off for this Carmel Homestead. Materials, colors and textures flow between the interior and exterior, creating a seamless transition from inside to outdoor living.

Stone paving is used at the pool terrace - not messy at all and the firepit area is decomposed granite.

We used an old sugar kettle for the firepit and the rocks are lava stones. If you are building a firepit, be sure to use stones that are approved for firepits.

When the sun starts to set, move from poolside to a nearby fire and get dry and toasty in no time.
Becky Harris added this to Ornamental Grasses in the Landscape
The built part of this landscape is nestled into a beautiful meadow of undulating grasses and wildflowers.
