Add Water Features

A beautiful backyard patio is accented by a "spool," a blend of spa and pool, plus a waterfall. The new space gives the homeowners room to relax and entertain outside while still enjoying the beauty of their beloved woods. Impact on the terrain was minimal; the homeowners directed the heavy equipment on a safe (though circuitous) route through the woods so that trees weren't damaged.
