This client called Ashton Group at The Beach looking for a team willing to take on the challenge of converting a small backyard into a completely secluded sanctuary that blocks the boisterous sounds of the main street heading into downtown Rehoboth Beach. Lucky for them, we were fully equipped to fulfill their vision.

The homeowner wanted an outdoor space that was easily maintained. This was their home away from home, so one of the features they needed was to be able to heat their pool and turn on any lights or water feature remotely. This way it was ready for them to relax in on a summer night by the touch of a button.

Below, in detail, are all the products and features included in this backyard getaway.  



Pool Area

Nestled in the backyard is the 16 ft Harmony in Sapphire Blue by Leisure Pools USA. The depths of this pool range from 4’3” in the shallow end to 5’2” in the deep end, creating the ultimate lounge area for the space allotted. The Mastertile Mosaic pool tile adds a gorgeous color that creates dimension. 

With the installation of Hayward total automation, the homeowner has the ability to control pool operations from their phone. Just like the homeowner requested, the they can now easily turn on lights, water features, pool heater and more simply from your mobile device.

Water Feature

Faced with Alderwood stacked stone by Eldorado Stone veneer, this linear water feature is 6 ft long by 1.5 ft high and has two 24-inch sheer descent waterfalls that produce a clear arc of water flowing into the pool. The intent for this water feature was to drown out any noise coming from the busy main street leading into downtown Rehoboth Beach.


Patio Area

Installing Travertine Pavers is a timeless look and keeps the ground easy to maintain without any fuss or hassle. This is a second/weekend home for the homeowner and having an easy to maintain yard is very important to them.

Travertine is a natural stone that is cool to the touch, even when the sun is shining on it during the hottest summer days. Using travertine around the pool area allows the homeowner to walk freely around the yard, without worrying about burning their feet. There are a few different potted plants, but no grass or sod area to worry about. This keeps their backyard area clean and free from any dirt or mud.
