Pinewood Paradise

This project was the culmination of a long-time dream for our homeowner. She wanted a fully functional outdoor resort with space to entertain, play and enjoy the view. With an extensive property outside of Spokane, she and our design team coordinated to create a masterful landscape oasis.

Upon meeting with the architect, our client shared her list of must-haves for the space. Ultimately, she wanted a landscape that provided outdoor areas to entertain and host her upcoming wedding. The overall style needed to coordinate with her craftsman-style home with a few additional contemporary touches that complemented the wooded scenery.

While the design process was a thrilling challenge for our architect, the steep incline of the property proved to be the most difficult aspect. To make a feasible entertainment space, our crews built basalt boulder retaining walls that effectively secured the hillside and pool while still looking natural amongst the surrounding landscape. Our architect focused on creating a well-organized design that flowed well between elements for optimal entertaining.

Without a doubt, this is one of those projects that has a bit of everything! In addition to the sun-shelf and lumbar jets in the pool, guests can enjoy a full outdoor shower and locker room connected to the outdoor kitchen. Modeled after the homeowner's favorite vacation spot in Cabo, the cabana-styled covered structure and kitchen with custom tiling offer plenty of bar seating and space for barbecuing year-round. A custom-fabricated water feature offers a soft background noise. The sunken fire pit with a gorgeous view of the valley sits just below the pool. It is surrounded by boulders for plenty of seating options. One dual-purpose retaining wall is a basalt slab staircase leading to our client's garden. Custom-designed for both form and function, this area of raised beds is nestled under glistening lights for a warm welcome.

Each piece of this resort, crafted with precision, comes together to create a stunning outdoor paradise! From the paver patio pool deck to the custom fire pit, this landscape will be a restful retreat for our client for years to come!
