Creating a dream backyard for a dream home.
When you build your dream home, nothing less than a dream backyard will do. Transforming a raw construction site into an incredible backyard was an enormous challenge, but Dex by Terra was up to the task.
It was all about the view. With large picture windows spanning the rear of their home, the clients made it clear that their backyard must be pleasing to look at from all angles.
The multi-level design is centered around a massive in-ground pool highlighted by a large firewall, and two fire pots that double as water features. Extending from this bright focal point, the travertine pool deck seamlessly transforms into a beautiful seating area that surrounds a wood-burning fire pit before proceeding to the covered lounge area. On hot days, our client’s family and friends never have to leave the pool. An in-pool seating area adjacent to an expansive stone bar top ensures that the fun doesn’t have to end when it’s time to dine.
Not only is this backyard aesthetically pleasing, but it is also high-tech. The fire and water features can be activated, programmed, and adjusted via the owner’s smartphone. Deck and pool lighting can also be powered on, and colors changed with a smart device.
After the hardscaping was complete, the client asked Dex to further enhance the space with landscaping. This included plants and shrubs of several varieties that would bloom throughout the year.
