After working closely with the clients on
perfecting the design and making best use of the
available space, the team finalised a plan.
Dean provided the clients with a pool that was
designed all the way up to the edge of the home,
and which draws them outside using the water
feature. A central pavilion connects the pool and
tennis court and provides a central location to
entertain friends and family. It includes a fully
equipped outdoor kitchen with barbecue, sink,
fridge and pizza oven. There is also a dining area,
outdoor bathroom and lounge area complete with
wood fire and TV.
A wet-edge spillover has been used to overcome
the sloping land, and the tennis court has been
positioned lower than the pavilion to help reduce
fill. By doing so, it also has provided a great spot to
watch a game of tennis from the pavilion area.
Splish Splash Pools constructed the pool, and
Kastell Kitchens supplied the outdoor kitchen. The
tiles are Floor Gres Ecotech porcelain tile in Ecolight
while the glass mosaic pool tiles are from Swimple.
Plant species used include bird of paradise,
Mexican lily, agaves, Japanese sago palms,
variegated mondo grass, blue chalk sticks
An advanced Canary Island date palm by the
pool creates a resort feel and provides shade.
The homeowners are thrilled with the outcome
a lavish resort-style landscape offering the
ultimate lifestyle experience. Minimalistic in
design, it has created myriad places to entertain
friends and family.
