Luxury Poolside

Escape the Heat with an In-Ground Pool

Imagine all the fun you can have outdoors with a custom swimming pool. You can spend quality time with your family, relax on the weekends or invite friends over for parties without having to leave your own backyard. An in-ground pool can make it the best summer ever.

A properly designed and installed pool will seamlessly blend into your outdoor living space. There are several options to choose from, including concrete, fiberglass and lap pools.

Before getting started on your project, there are several factors to consider:

Custom Diving Pool

Evaluate Your Property

The size and shape of your pool should complement the design and style of your home. Landscape design professionals will evaluate the best location to site your pool and recommend custom landscaping to highlight your home. Elevate your yard with a state-of-the-art pergola, pool house or outdoor living space. Outdoor structures such as kitchens and fireplaces add another level of entertaining style.  

Consider Your Intended Use

Swimming pools can serve many purposes. Some homeowners desire a fun outdoor entertaining area with shallow areas for lounging, relaxing waterfall features or a fun swim up bar. Others may want to use the pool for personal fitness. You may have younger children and want a shallow end for beginner swimmers. A custom pool can answer any of your needs.

Add Custom Accents

Once the swimming pool has been designed, you’re ready to begin planning ways to accentuate your backyard. A spacious deck with comfortable seating and a cozy fire pit beckons everyone outside. Strategically-placed pathways, fences and LED lighting keep everyone safe while extending your time outside. And thoughtfully selected trees and shrubs make an outdoor project pop with style.

Choose the Right Firm

It’s crucial to find a professional landscaping company that will combine artistic vision with superior craftsmanship and installation. The first step is a personal consultation to share your dreams, vision and investment level. From there, a creative designer will create a pool and landscape that is just right for your family and home.

How to Add Privacy to Your Home

Tips for Creating Private Retreats in Your Backyard

If you live close to your neighbors or cherish your time alone, there are a number of ways to create a secluded backyard. Custom landscaping and hardscaping features offer protection from the elements and other parties.

Consider the following ideas for ways to add privacy to your home:

A Line of Trees

Custom Hardscaping

Arborvitae trees can grow up to five feet a year. They thrive in our Mid Atlantic climate and tolerate both full and partial sunlight. A mature arborvitae can grow anywhere from 40 to 60 feet tall. Arborvitae trees are very popular options and are often used to line the borders of residential properties.


Stone walls, capstones or gates offer both elegance and privacy. They can also be customized to the style of your home. Colors and sizes of natural stone are endless, from smaller rocks to large boulders. Upgrade your property with natural stone. Its beauty is timeless and enduring.

Privet Wall

A broadleaf shrub, privet is often found planted in rows and then cut like a hedge wall. It does well in well-drained soil and can grow four to ten feet wide. Privet comes in evergreen, deciduous and golden colors. Privet is widespread in our area because it maintains its color for most of the year.

Custom Pergola

Custom Pergola

Feel like you’re in Italy with a leaf-covered pergola or pavilion. They offer shade from the sun and protection from the elements. Consider growing wisteria along the slats of the top for bursts of color. You can add soft lighting or outdoor lamps. Any climbing plant will do well with the support of a custom pergola.

Privacy Screens

Available in wood, metal or PVC, privacy screens do exactly what they’re called. They can be tailored to any style or color you desire. The screens can also be adapted to bring in more or less light, depending on your needs. They adaptability and ease of use makes them a popular addition to many homes.

Creative Ways to Incorporate Fire Into Your Next Outdoor Project

Outdoor firepits and fireplaces are one of the most popular additions for outdoor living spaces. They help extend time spent outside when it grows dark out or the weather begins to cool down. They also serve as a gathering spot for your backyard, bringing everyone together around the warmth of a cozy fireplace.

If you’re considering adding a fire pit or outdoor fireplace, you have a wealth of options to choose from. Customize your next project with some of these ideas:

Built-In Seating

A stone bench offers plenty of additional seats around the fire. A fire pit and matching seat creates a seamless look in your yard. The stone can complement your fire pit with brick accents, custom molding or matching colors. You can also build a seat with brick or concrete options.

Sunken Fire Pit

Section off a specific area of your property with a sunken fire pit. Make it large enough for plenty of seating around the fire. Accent with a stone border or plants. You can choose from flat pavers, gravel or even a grass base. The sunken space can also protect the fire from wind blowing it out.

Two Story Fireplace

Add style and impact with a grand fireplace. A two-story fireplace will provide extra warmth and coverage year-round. Consider the scale of your yard and see how you can design an extra-large fireplace that will be the focal point of your backyard.

Sleek and Modern

Fire pits don’t need to be round. Bring South Beach vibes with a white, rectangular and modern style fire pit. You can top it with a concrete slab or another smooth surface to make it look sleek and polished, or add a glass wall to surround the flame.


On the other side of the style wheel, make your fire pit or fireplace homey with whitewashed brick. Add black metal accents to the space. Finish the area with rustic seating from reclaimed wood and soft, ambient lighting.

Custom Masonry

Expert stonemasons can design and install eye-catching stone fire pits and fireplaces that will stand the test of time. They can be tailored to any size and style of the home and offer lasting beauty for years. Make sure you work with an experienced hardscaping company to ensure the work is done with attention to detail.
