This North Dallas home has been designed with a “Staycation” mentality for the whole family during Texas’ hot summers. This master backyard design included a diving and play pool, infinity spa, water features, outdoor kitchen, custom designed garden gates, seat walls, and landscape.
The pool includes an infinity edge spa. The spa’s location under the existing grand oak creates a comfortable and relaxing space for the adults to enjoy. The pool keeps the kids entertained with its diving board and play area. The pool’s edge is integrated to the patio with oversized stepping pads, and the adjacent tanning ledge allows sun bathers the luxury of wet feet, while remaining within easy reach of the outdoor kitchen.
The gleaming golden glass spa tiles were carried across the scupper wall. Rustic stone columns anchor the oversized low bowl planters stained to coordinate the design’s color palette. This project is truly a Texas Oasis: water, sound, color, shade, sun… and the smell of steaks on the grill.
