Ein Living Pool mit sanftem Geplätscher im Familiengarten

Der Living Pool fügt sich harmonisch in den Familiengarten ein und ist ein wahres Highlight.

The Living Pool of this family garden is a real highlight. The view axes created give the garden a generous atmosphere that conveys peace and tranquility to the clientele.

The initial situation before the reconstruction & after the garden design

Before the remodeling took place, the garden was mostly covered by lawn. From the living room, there was a small covered area outside. Although this gave a certain spaciousness, the client's wishes lay elsewhere. In addition, a hedge served as a demarcation from the rest of the neighborhood.

Before: Large lawn
After: Living Pool

Shady place under the Japanese blue vine

Now, leaving the house, Japanese blue vine automatically attracts attention. Contrary to what the name suggests, it blooms bright white in the spring. Under it are two granite ashlars, which are used as seating. From there you can already see the Living Pool. The cascades of blossoms blowing in the wind in combination with the splashing on the other side of the garden make it possible to recharge one's batteries.

Gravel was chosen as a paving material to break up and delineate this quiet zone. It creates a natural contrast to the adjacent lawn and helps to create space.

A Living Pool that enchants the senses

In the heart of the garden is the impressive natural pool. With the help of the cubic water spout, a pleasant background noise is created. The water feature blends seamlessly into the surroundings and is made of the same material as the floor tiles.

The crystal clear water of the Living Pool is purified using a special technique, without the addition of chlorine. This is much gentler on the skin and eyes than conventional cleaning. From the outside, no difference is noticeable: the refreshing wet invites you to swim and glistens equally in the sun.

An oasis of peace under the treetops

Slightly elevated on the wooden deck next to the Living Pool is a comfortable lounge. It makes you completely forget about the surroundings and gives a strong vacation feeling.

On one side of the wooden deck are trees that provide additional shade and privacy at the same time. Under them grows fern, which further softens the environment.

A sea of colors blooms in the family garden

A planting strip next to the Living Pool breathes life into the family garden. A wide variety of sun-loving flowers begin to bloom in the summer and provide small splashes of color amidst the greenery. The columbine and magnificent candle are also found here.

Fittingly, these two sun-worshippers are joined by midday flowers (Delosperma cooperi). At particularly sunny hours, the perennial opens its flower baskets and transforms the side of the house into a pink carpet.

Warm hours by the fire

Besides the Living Pool, the fireplace also attracts everyone's attention. It is located on the gravel square in another part of the garden. With suitable seating, evenings in autumn and winter can be made cozy and warm. The crackling and hissing of burning wood creates a homely ambience in the outdoor space.

This family garden has many highlights to offer, from the Living Pool to the diverse plantings to the fire pit - there's something for everyone. Here recreation and tranquility are possible throughout the year.
