What Houzz contributors are saying:
8. Bend a little or a lot. This patio boasts a plethora of biophilic design features, merging curves with a water feature by Jack Merlo and poignantly placed greenery. The curved wall makes for a comfier-than-usual spot to sit and admire the minimalist landscape, and to soak in the calming effects of the waterfall. Every element of this deck seems to have been designed for communion with nature. Even the tree can be experienced as its leaves change color and fall.
Outside, the clients filled in a plunge pool in the rear garden in favor of landscape architect Jack Merlo's bluestone water feature — a stunning curved wall fountain that provides both privacy and serenity in the garden area.Australian native spotted gumwood was used extensively throughout the garden design, including for the decking and the wall paneling.
