Daily Garden: Sundrea’s Art Pool

The fearless use of color in this artistic pool garden in Arizona is really appealing to me.  It plays well to the environment, surrounding architecture and climate as well as being a fun and inviting space.

It feels to me like the home of an artist.  Artists seem to crave color and incorporate it into their spaces in an interesting and unexpected way.  I personally find the fake blue of some chlorinated pools highly unappealing and the antithesis of refreshing, but here it is part of the color scheme and I can look at the pool as a design element in a colorful environment rather than an unnatural chemical bath.

The fence treatment with the corten steel panels are also really drawing me in….only seeing the space from these pictures, I still have the desire to walk over to them, touch them and follow them around the corner to see where the fence leads and what it feels like to be surrounded by these interesting pieces.

This seems like a deeply personal space that can only be created by a designer who is partnered with  a homeowner who really got involved in the design and had a wonderful vision to add to the process.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    The metal panels are really nice and the light is perfect.
