Suburban Spa

By using interlock, clean lines and geometric shapes, limited variety of materials, and selecting plant material for more structural and foliage emphasis we were
able to create a contemporary garden at a home in the suburbs.

The flowing pool is the central focal point of the design, in which the views from both the outdoor sitting areas and inside of the house celebrate the waterfront.
The dining area was lowered to create a greater connection between the upper sitting areas and the pool. A double-sided wall surrounds the new BBQ doubling as a bar ledge for two bar stools on the highest landing. An area was designated on the mid-level patio for lounging, the client can now relax in the sun overlooking the pool’s blue waters.

The S-curve of the steps resembles a wave on a beach, and is a strong geometric shape in the overall design. Limiting materials to the same interlock paver and neutral colour keeps the landscape contemporary and clutter-free.

The planting design made best use of some existing plants with structural interest. The emerald cedars are relocated in a continuous line along the fence for continuity and privacy. The variety of plant material is kept to a minimum, with large swaths of the same plant, such as Emerald Gold euonymus. All the plants were chosen to be easy-care for the non-gardening client. Changing the emphasis from flowers to structural evergreens and foliage colour carries on the contemporary theme set out in the hardscape. The furnishings, pots, and shed finish the look.
