British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley is undeniably one of the most beautiful places in all of Canada. It comes as no surprise then, that the landscaping work is equally stunning. This multi-tiered backyard in Predator Ridge is a perfect example. The central focal point is a gorgeous infinity pool, overlooking one of the two golf courses in Predator Ridge.
The pool is flanked by a hot tub on the right and a slide on the left. Rosetta Outcropping and Belvedere retaining wall have been used to wonderful effect to surround each element and seamlessly integrate them into the patio. Better yet, both the Outcropping and Belvedere walls provide natural places to sit and climb, resulting in a space that is far more dynamic than a traditional poolside. Rosetta Dimensional and irregular steps are used to build the various transitions within the space. The rough texture of each step provides the much needed traction a poolside location requires while still maintaining the comfort of a uniform rise.
Carefully selected plants around the pool and on the slide structure complement the texture of the Outcropping beautifully, providing an additional layer of visual interest while ensuring the space feels like a natural extension of the surrounding landscape.
