This is a concept drawing for a new fountain that would be the main focal point outside the front picture window to the immediate left of the entry.  The idea was to make it a "stop and gaze" element integrated into the overall design. We worked with an outside pool and fountain contractor to collaborate on the final installation inserting plants and decorative gravel after the foundation of the pond had been built based on our drawing.

The backyard pool area had an odd structure because of a state-owned run-off drainage system.  The challenge here was to create order out of chaos; to create a contemporary "Palm Springs" theme on a relatively low budget.  Keeping in mind how plants mature and grow in size was a key element to take into consideration as well.
