Garden with pool and lake view

Modern garden on three levels

The versatile private garden on three levels with a pool in the center develops a strong effect due to the many paved areas. The generous area on the upper level offers plenty of space for the dining area, overlooking the pool and enjoying the lake view. A fire bowl in a recess with gravel further softens the atmosphere. The central staircase leading to the pool is framed on the side by decorative planters, creating a Mediterranean ambiance. On the middle level, the pool takes up almost the entire area and is screened from the neighboring house by lateral planting of evergreen and flowering shrubs and umbrella-shaped trees. The low rose beds preserve the view of the lake. Looking over the garden from the top level, it seems as if the lower level slides right over into the lake.

Mediterranean elegance

The lowest level is enclosed by a step and a low hedge and offers space for a cozy lounge with a view of the lake. The enclosure by hedges creates a homely atmosphere. The modern design is given a Mediterranean ambience by the lake view, the harmonious planting and the many hard surfaces. The generous terrace leaves nothing to be desired and offers space for all kinds of uses. The flexible garden convinces by its simple elegance and the different levels, which can be used in different ways. Through the low planting, the reference to the lake was preserved and an atmospheric ambience was created.
