It is not often that a walkout basement layout creates such a great opportunity for a stream. Building the wall with limestone boulder chunks, we layered the grade down the hill and cut through the walls with a dramatic stream and waterfall combination. Tucking the hot tub into the boulder wall gives privacy and enclosure. A limestone boulder firepit and seat wall gives a spot for toasting marshmallows. Travertine patios and limestone boulders help tie the landscape in to the lodge style architecture of the home, while lush plantings soften the stone and provide color and changing interest.
