The pool stands as the focal point of the backyard, boasting a sleek design seamlessly integrated into the surrounding landscape. Encircled by bluestone coping and a spacious patio constructed with Cambridge Pavers, the pool area exudes an air of sophistication. The steps and retaining wall at the pool’s end showcase the beauty of Berkshire natural stone veneer, providing a captivating contrast to the paver patio material and adding an extra layer of elegance to the hardscape.

What sets this pool apart are two remarkable features – the Bellagio-inspired pool fountain jets and the cutting-edge automatic pool cover. Collaborating with Environmental Pools, we brought the homeowner’s dream of cascading fountains to life. The decision between an infinity edge and an automatic cover posed a challenge, but the homeowner wisely chose the latter for its practicality and investment value. With a simple push of a button, the automatic cover transforms from discreetly hidden to securely enclosing the pool, ensuring safety and preventing debris from marring the water. Clients frequently express their satisfaction with the automatic pool cover, appreciating the significant time saved on pool maintenance, allowing for more leisurely moments in the outdoors.

Adjacent to the pool, a wood-burning fire pit beckons, providing an inviting space to unwind, socialize, and perhaps even indulge in some s’mores between refreshing swims. A line of comfortable lounge chairs ensures ample seating for basking in the sun and enjoying the tranquil ambiance.

Recognizing the importance of space for family activities, especially with young children in the household, a generous portion of the backyard has been dedicated to a beautifully manicured lawn. Whether it’s a game of frisbee, cornhole, or soccer, there’s an abundance of room for various recreational pursuits.

“Anthony and the LDA team were a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. From planning to construction, everything went off without a hitch. The construction crew was very detailed, and took the time to get everything right. We did a major project to our backyard adding a pool, patio, fire pit, fencing, parking, lawn, plantings etc. I could not be any happier with the end result. We have a beautiful outdoor living space that has transformed our property. Thank you Anthony and the LDA team! We look forward to more projects in the future..”
