To accommodate a growing family, this Greenwich, CT home was expanded and completely renovated—and that renovation included updating the pool, pool house and all the landscaping as well. Conte & Conte, LLC, which offers landscape architecture and civil engineering services, worked with their sister, full-service construction company, Fairfield House & Garden, to tackle the project. The teams worked to update the home, pool and landscape construction, making sure each element flowed and worked seamlessly and easily together. Bringing in a landscape architect at the beginning stages of the renovation-before the plans were even drawn up-was helpful in this project (and in general), as it allowed the team to fully maximize the site’s potential.

An especially unique feature of this property is the pergola, which sits alongside the pool. The top of the pergola was created using trees that were already on the property, and then wisteria, clematis and roses were added as cover. Together, it creates a striking and rustic addition to the space, and provides an interesting and creative background to the pool and pool house. These elements fit well within the design of the rest of the space, and provide an area for the family to fully enjoy their home.
