Hide CaptionShow CaptionUnlike the rectangle pool the homeowners had first imagined, the freeform shape of this pool better fits with the terrain as well as leaving more room for entertaining. But the most hassle with this landscape makeover: The six-foot berm, installed with plantings for privacy from the neighbors, which was met with objections from the neighborhood's architectural review board. In a compromise, when the back side of the berm was modified to look less abrupt and was landscaped with rocks and plants, so now it looks like it's always been there.
