Path to Gate

Hiding the pool from the entrance turned into an attractive focal point in the garden. A solid fence or wall would have made this small space feel even smaller. By making the courtyard within a short wall and opening it with a window for the stream to flow through the viewer is drawn to the connected larger landscape.

To reduce its impact on the front yard a planted fence complete with a trellis window gate was designed to screen the pool from the front yard and provide the required security. A path leads up to it from the front of the house to encourage wandering into the garden and an unexpected surprise when you peek through the gate!
