A Modern Eco-pond Garden

modern angular pool garden

For myself, I simple need a little less austerity.  If this were my garden, I think I would have to do somethink shockingly interesting to those white painted walls.  But I do love the angle of the pool and the lines of the paving.  Those huge slabs and the twist that they present is one of those subtle details that make a project like this a bit more extraordinary.

It should be noted that this renovated home is warmed entirely with solar heat (excluding the use of a woodstove in the living room) — including the pool.   The pool is also an ecological swimming pond.

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.
