White Gate Garden

For this project, the garden had drainage problems and was difficult for people to get in and out because of narrow walks and tight spacing at doorways. The goal was to transform a yard that was primarily grass for children to play on into a beautiful garden that could be enjoyed by everyone, and to add an adult pool for exercising that was easy for everyone to enter and exit.

Wide paths were installed going to a front courtyard and continuing on to the pool area and screened porch. Where possible, thresholds were eliminated and the path from the driveway to the porch made welcoming. All the walls are now at a comfortable height for sitting and make working in the garden easier. The pool face makes it very easy to get in and out.
