There are some pool projects where the customer comes to us with a budget rather than a vision. Such was the case with this stunning backyard outdoor entertainment paradise. With this particular project, we worked with the home’s developer to create a backyard oasis that was every bit as stunning as the home itself.

Working with a pre-determined budget, we had a few design parameters – there had to be an outdoor kitchen/entertainment area that could be used throughout most of the year.

One of the givens with this project was a covered kitchen/entertainment area.

A spa was also on the list and they wanted the overall design of the pool area to be in perfect sync with the exterior of the home.

The spa provides a welcome respite and is great beyond the normal swimming months.

With that as a base, we set to work, creating a pool area that became a natural extension of the home, along with a covered outdoor kitchen/entertainment area that would be a welcome respite when temperatures cool off as well as an ideal place for family and friends to cook, dine, relax and unwind.

The gorgeous counter has room for plenty of guests as they survey what’s going on in the pool area.

The stamped concrete pool deck has ample room for patio furniture where there are plenty of large umbrellas to provide cover from the sun.

The patio area has plenty of room for lounging and relaxing.

Two waterfalls, one that spills from the spa into the pool and the other that features a sheer descent coming from the lush planter, add a touch of elegance to the overall look.

A waterfall cascades out of the spa and into the pool.

The free form pool features skyline blue tile and a gorgeous, Tropical Breeze PebbleTec plaster finish. A retaining wall was built around the outside perimeter of the pool area where the lush landscaping frames out this backyard oasis.

A retaining wall surrounds the back of the pool where stone steps lead into the yard for easy access when needed.

The final result is an outdoor area that will provide year-round entertainment on a grand scale. And all delivered within the original budget parameters.
