Pergola, Porch & Pool House Design
Open Air Structures in the Landscape
OUR McLEAN AND GREAT FALLS GARDEN STRUCTURES may serve as simple shelters or as fully independent outbuildings. These structures help us to define outdoor living spaces. They provide shelter and shade. We use them as focal points in the landscape.
The entire Surrounds team really delivered on an incredible backyard renovation. Went beyond expectations keeping the job site clean—and interacting with our kids!”
A pergola can be used as a visual anchor as shown in these pool environments.
Pool Houses & Pavilions
A POOL HOUSE DESIGN CAN BE ELABORATE, OR ELEGANTLY SIMPLE. The simple structure is sometimes called a pavilion or cabaña. This is a stand-alone open-air structure that provides shelter from sun and rain. It can be designed in any style, and fits nicely into the pool environment.
This classic styled pavilion beautifully frames a view of the pool for swimmers taking a break from the sun.

Some clients go all out when designing a pool house. The more elaborate pool house may be air-conditioned. It may feature a wet bar or full service kitchen and living room.

A pool house might even serve double duty as a guest cottage or summer bedroom for the homeowners. There is really no limit. We can take our client as far as imagination and budget will allow.
