Working with Transform Landscapes, we dug out an 8 x 3 metre pool that was lined with an automatic cover by Bell Leisure. The plant room was set into the steep hillside and we imported massive pieces of stone to retain the resulting banks. Working with the stone we were able to create a natural landscape to enclose this new pool terrace. The land falls away and down to a natural stream and bridge. We planted into the hillside using smaller plants and bulbs that would consolidate the soil. New stone steps led up to the pool and then beyond to the lawn and tennis court above.
