A back yard renovation includes a saltwater pool and several shaded gathering areas

The sloping sight in this back yard was leveled by creating a terraced patio on one level and a separate pool level three short steps down.

Bench seats line the circular walls of a hot tub, which flows into the main pool area with a waterfall effect.

Limelight hydrangea florets transform from creamy white in the spring to chartreuse green in midsummer weeks and then a deep pink in the fall.

During a long-awaited back yard renovation, these owners added a saltwater pool, plenty of gathering spaces and lots of colorful plants.

Angelonia in pinks and purples and hardy geraniums add season-long color to this renovated back yard.

Mature trees and a screen of arborvitae keep this patio area in shade for a good part of the day.
