This client had a beautiful home but the backyard was sloped, wooded, and damp due to the lack of sunlight in the space. This made the space unusable for our family. They longed to spend time together outdoors together and their wants included a pool, suntanning area, and a Fire Pit. We began by clearing the rough trees and brush to allow light into the space. By placing the suntanning area on the east side of the pool and raising it above the pool elevation we provided for maximum exposure while also minimizing the elevation change on the site.
