Large landscape projects are hard to visualize, complex to design and price, and challenging to manage. In addition large projects are expensive. As a homeowner, it can be difficult to discern if the landscape professional you’re hiring has all the right qualifications, licensing, insurance, etc. Our large landscape project process is designed to assure our prospective clients that Mallette Landscaping and Pools has the integrity, experience, credibility and reliability you are looking for.
The two main features are the post and beam style retreat and the 16 x 32 ft swimming pool with a water feature. Natural stone gardens and steps skirt the pool’s edge matching the natural stone bullnose of the pool. The retreat features vaulted ceilings, a built-in kitchen with granite countertops and natural stone. There’s a mounted TV on the ceiling and an electric fireplace providing great ambiance. Enclosing the area which includes a putting green, is a cedar fence.
IN THE WOODS
This project began with a 3-D landscape design (slide 1). The main feature is a 57 ft swimming pool installation which has a 32 ft diameter deep end. A large natural stone water feature with a sheer descent water feature on either side backdrops the pool. The pool is surrounded by a large interlock patio with steps leading to a change room and living area as well as steps leading to landing (future outdoor kitchen) and polished concrete bar. A sunken grotto with a gas fireplace constructed from same brick as house provide a beautiful spot to relax.
This project began with a 3-D landscape design (slide 1). The main feature is a 41 ft custom swimming pool installation with a sheer descent water feature and sun bench. A large patio surrounds the pool. One end of the pool has a pergola and the other end has a retreat with change room and a fireplace in lounge area. There is a large outdoor kitchen, which has a poolside bar, on the lower dining patio. All stonework is done with same stone used on the house. An added safety feature inside the ornamental iron perimeter pool enclosure is a glass fence separating the children's play area from the pool.
This project began with a 3-D landscape design. The design was extra challenging because of the limited space and shape of the property. The main feature is a 16 ft x 27 ft pool with a steel step at one end and water feature at the other. A large patio is surrounded by an ornamental iron fence and Ipe wood fence. An Ipe wood deck is flush with the patio level behind the pool. The outdoor kitchen features a BBQ island as well as a second island with sink and waste container. A louvred gazebo eating area is located between the kitchen area and the spa / change room.
The entrance features an interlock driveway with natural stone steps and planter.
ON THE WATER
This project began with a 3-D landscape design (slide 6). The main feature is a 50 ft x 20 ft pool with benches on either side of the steps. Water jets line both sides of the pool. The patio, steps and sitting areas are finished with natural stone mortared to a cement base. The perimeter enclosure is ornamental iron fence. A glass fence runs between the pool and the house as an added security feature for small children. A natural stone fire pit is located just outside the fence.
