Stone House

 The feature of this minimalist garden is a black bottom pool, complete with automatic cover. The dark colour of the water emphasizes the purity of the form and provides a dramatic mirrored surface that reflects the surrounding gardens, house and sky. A terrace of oversize slabs of Algonquin limestone provides ample space to lounge poolside with beautiful views looking back at the house. An adjacent custom stone bench defines the pool area and offers additional casual seating. Next to the pool terrace is a custom-built sport court, complete with basketball net. The green court blends seamlessly with the adjacent artificial lawn and provides a large play area or the clients’ active children. Surrounding the garden, a simple planting scheme of green hedging and mass plantings of Japanese Forrest grass and Lavender create privacy and add movement and seasonality to the garden.
