Located on a country road in Orange County, NY, this backyard oasis provokes feelings of a lounging in a secluded vacation resort. With a modest existing patio right outside the backdoor sliders, these homeowners installed a new in-ground swimming pool that needed to be somehow integrated into the overall landscape design. Because they had worked together on other projects like the existing patio, plantings, and a front walkway, they reached out to Landworx Landscaping in Goshen, NY to bring it all together.
After just over 3 weeks of landscape construction, Landworx Landscaping delivered a resort-like environment for the homeowners. To integrate the existing upper level patio, Landworx incorporated one single, gently sweeping step down that would lead to the new pool patio. Generously wrapping all sides of the freeform swimming pool with Unilock’s Umbriano pavers with a Series 3000 border, the pool patio meets a newly installed custom pool house on one side. Offering a lounge-style space for relaxing poolside, the pool cabana houses an outdoor wet bar, flat screen mounted on the wall much like you’d find in an interior living room, beautiful chaise lounges, and an outdoor shower. The pool house floor—built using Unilock’s stain-resistant Belpasso paver—offers a nonslip surface perfect for poolside spaces.
To bring the new and old patios together even more seamlessly, Landworx also redesigned the upper patio space slightly. Forming an outdoor dining space near the home’s indoor kitchen, the curves of the upper level patio play nicely off those of the pool below. Located on this same level—yet set off a bit with the perfect vantage point to the children’s play area—is an outdoor fire pit room with seating walls wrapping the far side’s edge. The seating walls are constructed using Unilock’s Brussels Dimensional System in which the Landworx team artfully inset an accent course of Unilock’s Series 3000 in Black Granite.
Finishing things off, a low-voltage landscape lighting system brings the outdoor space to life after the sun goes down and new plantings throughout, full sod installation, and a complete irrigation system add beauty and function for these NY homeowners.
