The couple needed a pool for the grandkids and a spa for themselves. The close-fitted site with wonderful views required creative design to meet the client’s needs as well as the regulations for the riverside location. A stepped series of terraces provided for views and play for both adults and children. The stone and wood details knit the new construction with the existing house. Native plants met requirements for the shore location, fit the location, and added easy care along with beauty. Designed with Alice Eckerson while an associate at Eckerson Design Associates, LLC.
