This lot enjoys powerful views of the Salt Lake Valley. Careful placement of coniferous and deciduous trees overcomes the challenge of incorporating those views without sacrificing privacy or shading from the summer sun. The pool area is a versatile space designed for entertaining and relaxing. Its smooth connection to the family/game room allows for effortless flow and flexibility. The semi-formal lawns provide functionality without overtaking the landscape with thirsty, high maintenance areas. Care was taken to blend highly planned areas with the more naturalized style of the existing hillside. The result is a practical design that saves water, time, and money while expressing the natural beauty of a native plant palette.
