Botanical Decorators designs and builds custom residential swimming pools in Alexandria, VA. By implementing creative design, precise engineering & extraordinary attention to detail, Botanical Decorators helped an Alexandria, Virginia homeowner make his long list of requests a reality in this cohesive landscape design/build project.
Our client requested premium materials & multiple design elements to improve the look and feel of their outdoor living space all while being low maintenance but colorful and interesting. The landscape design included a 50’ long lap pool with an automatic pool cover, spa, an outdoor shower, grilling station, sitting patio with fire pit, kitchen deck with a lower level screen porch and gas fireplace. These features would require multiple patio areas, retaining walls to terrace the steep hillside, in addition to a landscape plantings & lighting plan to highlight the space.
The backyard presented numerous challenges: an 8’ grade change from the basement level to the property line, three easements and special rear yard setback requirements for the pool, patios and stone walls that restricted the allowable development space defined by Fairfax County, Virginia.
The key was to develop the property into multiple levels with several defined spaces that helped transform the existing steep hillside into a functional outdoor living space that has comfortable flow and is usable for large or small entertaining all months of the year.
