Historic Pool

Shaded pergola covered dining space

This project gave us the wonderful opportunity to restore a derelict pool space adjacent to a 1700’s colonial house situated on several acres of historic landscape.  The 1950’s era pool was completely renovated and resurfaced with a natural pebble finish that gives the water an azure hue.  The surrounding pool terrace was enlarged to create an open and more usable space.  Antique fieldstone recycled from a barn foundation on the property was incorporated into the fieldstone wall that supports the expanded pool terrace.  A red cedar pergola was custom designed to provide structural support for the wisteria vines to be planted for a shaded dining space.  The homeowner’s love for horticulture contributed greatly to the plant pallete of hybrid dogwood trees, daylilies, blue hydrangea, carlessi viburnum, cerastium, heather, tree peonies and European ginger.
