Tropical Persuasion

A lush, tropical style garden brimming with a spectrum of color and variety was the desire of the client for this project. Taking the existing pool shell, Twill architectural concrete pavers formed the coping units as well as the immediate pool areas.

New waterline tiles were also carefully chosen and installed to enrich the color emanating from the pool and giving a revitalized, new look. Additional surrounding spaces were paved in La Roche limestone to deliver texture and character.

Another element of the project saw the existing patio redesigned and paved in La Roche limestone, creating a flow from the home’s interior to the outdoor pool area. An upper level terrace overlooking the pool and surrounding gardens was also formed to provide a place of calm rest and relaxation.

To fully realize the lush, green effect typical of a tropical style back yard, mass planting of species with colorful foliage and of various heights and textures was carried out.

The light color of the La Roche limestone pavers offers the ideal contrast with the bold, colorful planting palette. The existing sandstone path was also maintained and now aligns effortlessly with the new limestone pavers. The path lazily meanders its way through the garden, past points at strategic locations showcasing various garden art.

The end result is a modern, sophisticated pool and a opulent garden that has created a soothing space for the clients, designed for lazy weekends outdoors.
