Federico Pool and Spa
The Challenge: Install a pool and spa between the client's house and the existing pool house on the property.

The Result:  The McHale team brought this client's vision to life by:
  • renovating the existing deck;
  • installing a unique outdoor living space that includes a free-form pool and spa and a fire pit;
  • using the existing elevation to construct a natural-style waterfall that flows into the pool;
  • planting the backyard with naturalized, traditional plantings; and
  • constructing a raised vegetable garden with fencing.

Resistant to deer and disease, this evergreen shrub is a slow-grower and requires little maintenance for the beautiful red berries it produces from Christmastime throughout the winter.
