We designed and built this award winning project in The Oaks of Calabasas for a family that wanted to feel that they were on a vacation in the mountains when they were in their backyard. Their “staycation” backyard features a natural stone fire pit, spa, freeform swimming pool, and waterfall. Their backyard now looks like a mountain resort, complete with deer grazing on the hill. Multi level waterfall splits into several spillways as it cascades toward the swimming pool. A cast concrete bridge stamped to look like wood planks crosses over lap pool. Cohen’s landscape design include colorful planting pockets to soften hardscaped areas. The soothing sound of water enhances the front yard landscaping with dual runnels, which are channeled water features that empty into fountain basins.
