As Landscape Architects, we love collaborating with our clients to create spaces that are perfectly unique to their personal vision. This project incorporated many design elements in this fun, interactive design reminiscent of our clients’ favorite Canadian lakeside retreat. To bring this experience home, we designed the pool and spa with a ‘dock-style’ sitting area, jumping platform, Baja shelf seating and sand beach entry, tucking strawberries into the rockwork to recreate the memory of picking them at the lake. A native grass meadow, rope swing, and outdoor shower add to the fun, and our clients’ choices of boulders and embellishments add tons of charm. By night, the sliced boulder fire pit and band stage are the place to be. For family fun and for entertaining, this unique space has something for everyone.
