Tight Spot For a Pool

Ridgefield, Connecticut

The Challenge...

The owners of this Ridgefield updated classic colonial wanted to swim with their kids in their backyard. However, wetlands on one side and a septic system on the other side posed significant constraints.

The Solution...

R. Schweitzer, landscape architect, designed a rectangular-shaped pool that tucked in perfectly close to the house, within all the challenging setbacks.

The use of lighter color Wheaton granite made for a cooler decking material and the bluestone banding added interest and tied in with the traditional-style house.
