A client approached us about designing and building a backyard retreat for their family which would include a pool, a guesthouse, and an adjacent tennis court. We had landscaped their front yard and were excited to help with the transformation of the backyard, which prior to the renovation was a large open lawn. After the initial landscape design work was completed the shotcrete pool was installed (Northeast Pools & Spas) followed by our installation of the thermal bluestone pool deck. Snyder Homes designed and built the guesthouse and contracted the installation of the tennis court. Once the structures were complete we installed the plantings, sod, bluestone pathways, and firepit. The result was a fun-loving backyard that will keep the family (and all of the kid's friends) entertained for years to come.
