This home in Ripon is one of four neighbors who all have Spring Creek backyards. The simple layout on this project provides plenty of space for the family to relax by the pool or entertain friends.
The sandy "beach" area keeps the yard extremely low-maintenance, while still providing plenty of room for the kids to run and play. The pool features a shallow cutout where the kids can splash without getting in too deep, while still shaded by the umbrella that goes right in the water. Sun-worshipers can relax on the lounge chairs, or dip their feet in the water while sitting on the poolside cushions.
The client envisioned a design that captured Early California with elements reminiscent of the gold mining era. The finished project includes: a “cowboy cabin” style pavilion with distressed beams and stone counters, a tube slide with dilapidated mine shaft entry into the pool, a mine shaft outdoor shower built into the backside of the water features, and underwater boulder formations. Multiple water features including a gold panning creek and treasures, such as arrow heads and gold coins and nuggets, affixed and hidden throughout the pool, complete the ultra rustic feel.
The project design features include a 65’ x 38’ main pool which spills over an infinity edge feature into a secondary wading pool. A large boulder water feature with multiple stream beds leading into the pool. Other features include 50 specimen live oak trees and a zero edge feature on the wading pool.
