An Alabama garden design’s grand focal feature is a pool house set at the back of the property that is used for family gatherings and entertaining. The structure sits at the end of a narrow tree-lined pool so that its large, paned window and ivy-covered façade reflect on the water’s surface, reminiscent of classic palatial garden designs. The pool runs alongside the home, which boasts a brick terrace to overlook the lovely scene.

Around the pool, timeworn pieces collected from near and far over decades reflect the homeowners’s passion for beautiful gardens. Stone planters, aged corbels, a semicircular bench, and informally laid stonework give an Old-World character to the yard that is matched by notable architectural details in the pool house.
