Backyard Resort – Woodstock GA
This retired Woodstock couple was tired of their large but dated backyard, which included a basic rectangular fiberglass pool with limited gathering areas, plain landscaping and an unsightly railroad tie retaining wall.
For this project the couple chose the Alpharetta-based Outside Landscape Group. Company owner Rick Kaldrovics lead this project and always kept in mind his client’s desire to enjoy their retirement in a new “resort styled backyard”.
Although challenging, this plan modernized the dated pool by adding a new spa with spillway and a raised lounging deck with several sheer water falls spilling into the pool. The surrounding pool decks include all-natural stone decking with spacious gathering areas for entertaining and large sweeping steps.
The back side of the pool called for a “destination living area” away from the house, with a new cabana. The pool house is large enough to host a casual lounging conversation area, a dining spot, and a complete outdoor kitchen with fireplace! To complete the feel of the resort backyard, a natural water feature with waterfalls, boulders, fish and plants were added to the plan. Finally, both a new lighting system for nighttime entertaining and a sound system for music were installed to this stunning new “resort!”
