Lay of the Land – Pool

 |  Photographer David Gruol  |  Architect Thomas Baio, AIA

“The house was very much designed in the spirit of the Hamptons style,” Millburn, NJ-based architect Thomas Baio says. The expansive pool deck, which complements the coloring of the home’s exterior, is made of bluestone. Fernleaf Japanese maple, Dwarf Hinoki cypress and low-profile ‘Sapphire Nymph’ Blue Atlas cedar grow between stones next to the pool. Emerald and gold euonymus creeps up the boulders. A ‘Gregoryana’ dwarf spruce sits to the right of the stones, next to the pool deck. The bed is completed with a mix of carpet rose, assorted perennial flowers and dwarf ornamental grasses.
