Berm Compromise

Unlike the rectangle pool the homeowners had first imagined, the freeform shape of this pool better fits with the terrain as well as leaving more room for entertaining. The six-foot berm, installed with plantings for privacy from the neighbors, was met with objections from the neighborhood's architectural review board. In a compromise, the back side of the berm was modified to look less abrupt and was landscaped with rocks and plants, so now it looks like it's always been there.
