My clients in swanky Manhattan Beach had outgrown their old pool and the space no longer functioned for their needs. We created multiple “rooms” for relaxing and entertaining. A heater over the dining table in the pergola keeps diners toasty, the outdoor kitchen counter doubling as a buffet. At the other end of the pergola, the custom fire table and bench are wonderful for the cool evenings. A swing bench is a favorite place to unwind and the roomy stone patio can even double as a dance floor. It’s all surrounded by a lush garden with a plant palette that is easy care and drought tolerant while lowering their water and energy needs significantly.
