When the Brewster Road client said they wanted a pool in their back yard, it didn’t seem all that remarkable. Then we saw the site. They wanted their pool on a steep and inaccessible hill covered with 8’-high brambles and thorns. I mapped the topography and in the end, we leveled a terrace and held it up with seventy-foot-long retaining walls. A construction path allowed excavators to clear and grade and dig the hole, and a pump truck with a 125’ boom delivered the swimming pool concrete over the house for the gunite operator. With the pool excavation, grading, and fill required for the project, we designed the landscape for balanced final grading. No need to import fill or cart away excess earth. Black wire pool fences are tucked into shrubbery and out of sight so the place functions as an open, airy oasis.
