Ein moderner Garten mit einem natürlich gereinigten Infinity Pool

This very special garden with infinity pool shows how architecture and garden design come together in a harmonious way. The lines of the new building are echoed in the garden. Different heights paired with a well thought-out planting concept create a unique feeling of space in the open air. A flowing transition has been created between the indoor and outdoor areas, extending the living room to the outside.

Wood look for the entire outdoor area

The modern new building stands out with its unusual design and façade. These two features have also been incorporated into the garden. The chosen wooden deck in the covered terrace area extends down to the pool via a curved staircase. The steps were built at different heights, creating areas for walking, sitting and lounging. 

The terraced area was designed with ponds and impressive specimen trees instead of a terrain. This creates an open and natural flair. The two copper rock pears (Amelanchier lamarckii) also play an important role in the interior design and serve as a privacy screen without obstructing the wonderful view.

When the house merges with the outdoor living room

Naturally purified infinity pool with a natural stone pool

The large pool at the edge of the garden forms the center of the outdoor area. This is where people swim, play and relax. The water seems to run on into infinity through the overflow edge. This means that the unique view can also be enjoyed from the pool.

The swimming pool is cleaned completely without chemicals. Living Pool technology is the sustainable and popular alternative to chlorine pools. The Living Pool system enables pools with healthy, clear and natural swimming pool water. No chlorine, acids or other chemicals are used for water treatment in this garden. Thanks to the environmentally friendly and resource-saving biofilter, the swimming pool can be enjoyed without red eyes or the smell of chlorine. 

The natural stone basin chosen makes the water shimmer like a mountain lake. The high-quality basin lends the garden a touch of elegance, while the deep blue color of the water creates a wonderful contrast to the surroundings. The overflow edge also creates a gentle ripple, creating a natural soundscape.

Creating spatial structure with the help of levels

A garden on a slope may seem like a disadvantage at first. However, differences in height contribute to new visual relationships, structures and the creation of space. The staircase from the terrace to the swimming pool is a central design element in this garden. It combines functionality with design and echoes the shape of the new building. The planting chosen on both sides of the steps brings nature close to the house. By elevating these planted carpet elements, the two solitary trees are also visible from the interior and play an important role in the living room design. 

Height differences in the garden design

Line layout and planting concept

The curved lines of the new building create a very gentle effect. The eye is guided around the house without any hard edges. The garden was also designed around the house according to requirements, view and orientation. Shrubs and grasses are planted in straight strips. The loose growth pattern gives the garden a natural and homely feel. Trees were used to shape the space. They are decisive for the visual relationships in the outdoor area and rise up between the grasses and shrubs. 

The lush planting of the garden

Fantastic view of the sunset

The front bathing and lounge area forms the heart of the garden. When the sun disappears over the horizon, a sophisticated lighting concept illuminates the garden. Various spotlights create a magical atmosphere and particularly emphasize the trees and their branches. Thanks to the large window front of the house, the interior lighting also contributes to the ambience of the garden. The warm light on the terrace and the illuminated trees has a soft and harmonious effect. The lighting makes the garden usable for longer and enriches the family with a wonderful ambience.
