Custom Freeform Pool
This client called Johnson Pools to add something fun in their backyard because it was boring and unusable. In addition, they were frustrated with the hillside located in the middle of their yard. Their wishlist included a pool with an adjacent lounging space, a grotto, and water slide. Poolside, they also wanted a fire pit area, a pavilion, bathroom, storage shed, and an outdoor kitchen.
The lounge space sits beneath a louvered pergola, which can controlled to let sunlight in or keep rain out. The pergola is also fitted with two infrared heaters to warm up the space in the cooler temperatures. The shiplap wall is a focal point and also the backdrop for the outdoor TV. Beneath the pergola, we equipped the outdoor kitchen with a leathered granite countertop and a stone veneer facade. Outfitted with a bar sink, storage, two waste bins, mini fridge, large green egg, and an EVO flattop grill, this outdoor kitchen is ideal for outdoor entertaining.
We incorporated boulders and constructed the pool grotto from limestone to play off the travertine used in the pool coping. The stunning result adds a resort feel to this backyard.
The paver patio is the perfect poolside canvas. In one corner sits the outdoor lounge, while a fire pit area is situated atop the paver patio on the opposite end. Paver patios have excellent durability and are a great addition to any outdoor living space.
