Our first task in the design process was to address the drainage challenges. To effectively manage excess water, our team installed a substantial 1,000-gallon drywell, allowing efficient percolation back into the soil. Moving forward, multiple layouts were conceptualized for the pool, grill island, and fire pit. After presenting various drafts to the homeowners, a layout was chosen that perfectly aligned with their needs. The subsequent phases involved meticulous material selection and the commencement of construction.

Winner of a Boston Design Guide Award for its exceptional pool space design, this Norwood oasis stands as a testament to our commitment to transforming yards into dream spaces. Let Land Design Associates be your partner in creating a haven for friends and family to enjoy.

Collaborating closely with Easton Pools, we designed a sleek pool complemented by a stunning granite coping. An outstanding feature of the pool is its automatic cover, discreetly hidden and retractable into the pool’s end, effortlessly preserving cleanliness and protecting against debris—all at the touch of a button.

Nestled beneath a custom pergola, the grill island and dining area provide shade during sunny days. Mounted lights ensure that the entertainment continues seamlessly after sunset. The grilling area is a true backyard barbecue enthusiast’s dream, boasting high-end appliances that not only enhance aesthetics but also guarantee even cooking. With a mini-fridge and an integrated ice chest, the area is as functional as it is stylish. A custom templated granite countertop adds a touch of luxury, while the overhang facilitates bar seating—perfect for accommodating guests or providing a casual space to converse with the grillmaster.

The fire pit, constructed with Unilock Estate Wall and capped with natural granite, exudes warmth and sophistication. Integral under cap lights, controlled via a convenient phone app, cast a soft, inviting glow. Strategically placed next to the dining area, the fire pit adds an extra layer of coziness during evening meals, complemented by the captivating ambiance of lights and a crackling wood-burning fire.

“We have our own oasis in Norwood, and we have Land Design Associates to thank! We started the process with several design options, which helped us imagine all the possibilities. Then a few months later, LDA’s incredible construction crew started making our vision come to life. We went all out, and did both front and backyard! Our design included an outdoor kitchen, patios, fire pit, pergola, drainage system, irrigation system, retaining wall, lighting, sod, pool, and truck load(s) of beautiful trees! Land Design Associates has truly provided our family with the outdoor space we always dreamed of. Thanks to all of you!”
