Swimming pool with southern flair

Swimming pool with Mediterranean touch

This generous garden design in Mediterranean style is limited to the essentials and thus gains enormous impact. The unobstructed view of the lake in the distance and the swimming pool close by elevate water to the central element. A spacious lawn surrounds the swimming pool and is accompanied by low planting. The pool appears enclosed and does not get lost in the surface.

Structure and visual relationship

The light-colored slabbed surface is softened by dark bed borders and dark, polished stone benches, which at the same time act as design elements in their own right. They stagger the pool area and form a boundary between the seating area, pool and lawn. Two trees frame the seating area: the impressively flowering magnolia on one side, the shady plane tree on the other. The shape of the plane tree's roof allows a view from the house above, creating a visual relationship with the lake.

Loose planting

The planting areas are basically planted gravel areas and therefore not continuously green. This creates a vacation atmosphere with a Mediterranean touch. However, the plant selection also helps to emphasize the modern garden design. The existing plant combination of romantic boxwoods and roses creates a transition to the newly designed part of the garden and is combined there with heat-loving and partly silvery-leaved perennials.
