How do you design a pool when safety is the top priority?

 

Our clients came to us looking for a backyard they could enjoy with the entire family—including their young kids.

 

We knew that meant adding a standard rectangle pool so we could use an automated pool cover to keep their kids safe.


And while we didn’t design a custom pool for this space, it’s the rest of the design that adds the ‘wow factor’ our clients were also looking for and that makes it a backyard that makes them feel like they’re on vacation every time they go outside.

I get asked all the time…Is there such a thing as a nice looking play structure…and this is it.


We created this kids zone in our client’s yard. There’s a ton of open space for them to run around, play lawn games, and swing.


Not only are the kids going to absolutely love playing on this thing, but it looks good sitting in your yard.


It fits with the rest of the design that’s white with black accents. You don’t have this huge eyesore with a bright yellow slide in the yard.


Have you ever seen a playset that looks this good?

Would you add a basketball court to your yard?


This feature is great because it gives your kids—whether they’re young or teenagers—a space that’s just for them in this yard.

 

We added a half-court, since this is a pretty small yard, but with regulation-standard lines, it has everything you need. Plus, we made sure to include a place for you to put all the equipment, it still feels high-end.

 

In the rest of the yard, there’s a rain curtain, luxury swings, a sunken seating area, an oversized spa, aa massive outdoor kitchen, and a ton of other luxury details that make this entire yard feel like a 5-star resort.

From Dirt Lot to Backyard Magic

This is a standard tract home with a boring backyard. We took the empty lot and completely transformed the space—giving our clients some much needed privacy and all the luxury details that make their new yard feel anything but ‘standard.’  

From Empty Outdoor Space To A Multi-Faceted Dream Yard

This sprawling lot was a massive, empty space before. We added layers and levels, giving the outdoor space individual areas where our clients can host, entertain, and enjoy their new yard.  

From Unusable To Backyard Resort 

Our clients couldn’t enjoy their yard before, so we gave them a 5-star makeover with some impressive features. The final design is a gorgeous yard they can actually spend time in.

Designing An Outdoor Space You Can Enjoy All Year

Summer’s officially over.

But for our clients, Pumpkin Spice season doesn’t have to be spent indoors…

Because they have an outdoor space they can enjoy all year.

Here’s how they’re using their yards this fall ↓

PS, Don’t wait until next year to get your dream yard! Schedule your free design consultation with your team today! Click the button below to get started.

SUNDAY BBQ 💥🏈

This might be the most opulent sunken seating area we’ve ever created. It’s seriously cozy and accented by a sleek rain curtain, modern design, and all the lavish details you’d find at the most luxurious 5-star resorts.

BONFIRE TIME 🔥🍫

Is there anything better than a bonfire with your family (aside from ooey, gooey s’mores)? We love designing fire features for our clients because they create space for the entire family to spend time together.

GET COMPETITIVE 🏀⛳

Fall is the perfect time to spend a Saturday afternoon shooting hoops or sinking putts. When a client asks for a sports court or a putting green, we know their kids are going to spend a ton of time out there!

MOVIE NIGHT 🍿

An outdoor movie night under the stars? Yes, please! For many of our clients, adding an entertainment area to their yard is a must—so they can cozy up and watch Netflix outside. 

SOAK IN THE SPA 🌿🛁

When the weather’s too cold for a swim in the pool, the spa is still a great option—esepcially if it’s designed in an enclosed or covered area!
