Eco-Friendly Poolscape in Montpelier

Montpelier, VA

Project Synopsis

This beautiful space was featured in Richmond Magazine's R-Home and is Outdoor Dreams' most environmentally friendly space to date. The expansive patio and pool deck, composed of Techo-Bloc products, were installed to be permeable, reducing runoff issues and preventing chemicals and silt from reaching vital waterways. To complement the permeable hardscape, this project also features a landscape composed entirely of native plants that support the local wildlife and ecosystem. Along with these environmentally friendly elements, this project also features a gunite pool, outdoor fireplace, pergola-covered dining area, wall fountain, and a custom boulder jumping rock.
