Client Brief:

Clients wanted to minimize water usage so keep planted borders as small as possible and preferably use Mediterranean plants that don't require much water. Pool and Spa were dated and needed refreshing, so the coping, tile and spa veneers were replace, existing pavers cleaned up and extended to reduce planted borders around pool. New pour in place concrete deck added to side and raised seating area, and new planting installed to new and existing borders.
