Backyard Oasis, Ann Arbor, Michigan

For family fun and entertaining, the homeowners wanted a large swimming pool with a rock waterfall, outdoor kitchen, privacy screening, and a fire pit. In addition to providing these features, our landscape plan included multi-level walkways from the back of the house to the pool area, cohesively uniting the pool, large brick home, and site. The mandatory pool fence was partially concealed with plantings and the rock waterfall island. Large terraces surrounding the pool were created by stone retaining walls with limestone coping. Wooden doors were designed to enclose the lower level of a house porch to store pool furniture in the winter.
