Lush Backyard With Restored Barn

To breathe new life into this backyard in Pennsylvania, Hess Landscape Architects, Inc. restored a barn and adapted it for use as a pool house. Lush vegetation surrounds the spa, pool and lounge deck to make the yard feel like a private oasis.

Stepping Stone Pathway to Renovated Barn

A stepping stone walkway provides the path to the renovated barn's entry and splits off to lead the way to the backyard pool and covered lounge area.

Wrought Iron Entry to Pool

The bespoke wrought iron fence was designed to meet pool enclosure code requirements.

The barn’s paint scheme is evocative of the materials and plantings selected for the landscape. The distinctive red chaise lounges offer eye-catching contrast against the greenery surrounding the spaces.

Covered Outdoor Lounge With Red Cushioned Chairs

The covered lounge area includes cove lighting so that the spot can be enjoyed well into the evening. Red cushioned chairs offer a comfortable place to rest and enjoy company.

Private Pool With Red Cushioned Lounge Chairs

Red cushioned lounge chairs next to the pool add a pop of bold color to the outdoor design. Lush vegetation surrounds the space to bring natural beauty and give the pool area some privacy.

A key part of the landscape architect's effort was to marry the buildings with one congruent exterior space. Smaller footpaths flank the main terrace spaces, creating a hierarchy within the circulation network, and interconnecting the different structures around the site.
