Patio renovation by AquaTerra Outdoor Environments, 7111 Elm St., Frisco, TX 75034, (214) 387-8333, www.aquaterraoutdoors.com

This 15-year-old Plano home’s patio was in desperate need of a facelift. Since purchasing the property, the trends in outdoor entertaining had changed dramatically, and the homeowners were very interested in updating their backyard to create a well designed, multi-functional and cohesive outdoor space. “When introduced to this project, our design team was excited about the opportunity to renovate a deteriorating backyard,” explains Tal Thevenot, president and principal designer of AquaTerra Outdoor Environments in Frisco. “Before, the space was divided into three areas (pool, back patio, kitchen) and only two gathering places (pool and back patio). We started by completing a detailed site analysis and interviewing the clients on a few key factors: wants, needs, lifestyle, style and—the key one—budget.”

Eventually, everything but the pool shell and infrastructure were removed, and breathtaking elements were added, including a custom spa with hydrotherapy jets, an oversized natural waterfall and grotto, a fire pit and a magnificent outdoor kitchen with granite countertops. All of the design, construction and landscaping was completed by AquaTerra. “We created more defined spaces with distinct circulation patterns from one room to another,” Thevenot explains. “The homeowners now have shade and sun gathering spaces around the pool, connected to the back patio with a lot of outdoor living furniture and a TV, and the outdoor kitchen and bar space with another outdoor TV. All of this purposeful, well-designed space creates a very cohesive environment that has ample room to entertain the masses.”
