The decisions behind the creation of a well-used outdoor living space
The landscape design of this home was once part of an arboretum, so the homeowners decided to preserve as many of the trees as possible.
Rather than have the pool deck wind its way around the whole swimming pool, these homeowners decided to simply create various gathering areas.
To get the most out of their outdoor kitchen these homeowners included a two-sided fireplace and connected the whole structure to the house by heated, covered walkways.
An outdoor umbrella provides shade for those who don't wish to bear the brunt of the sun, yet want to stay close to the pool.
