Pool Patio

A fence around a pool does not need to look like it is keeping people in or out. It can create walls for an outdoor room that are decorated with plants and stonework. From the pool side, low planting beds contained in a natural looking retaining wall bring the plants close to the pool without blocking the sun. Privacy for the pool area from the entry courtyard is gained by clump bamboo flanking the "Wisteria Window" Gate.
