Yarrow Point Lake Terrace / by Mark Garff

On Lake Washington, an existing pool terrace was disconnected from the rest of the yard and and waterfront.  The site had a challenging slope, but it was no match for a thoughtful design and some earth moving equipment! 

A retaining wall at the edge of the existing pool was replaced with a wide, generous stair welcoming guests to a new, bocce-style terrace below, complete with gas fire pit and stunning views.  A gentle, winding path leads down to a waters-edge patio with intersecting stone and concrete patterns creating a visually dynamic experience.  A small sandy beach and generous lawn complete the experience.  A California style planting palette with beach groundcover, perennials and elegant, flowing grasses highlighted with LED low-voltage outdoor lighting complete the vacation-home-in-the-city feel.
