Colorful Impressions: Darien, CT
Program: 18' x 36' pool with spa and sun shelf. Perimeter retaining / sitting wall, lawn terrace steps, upper and lower patio areas, walkways, cottage style plantings, and lighting.
Narrative: The clean lines of a rectangular pool form an elegant connection between an existing residence and its natural surroundings by way of critical alignments. Set into a gently sloping hillside, the program features a perimeter sitting wall and plantings that add colorful impressions while helping to define various lounge areas, or rooms, and walkways, or hallways, around the pool.
Owner Testimonial: "In 2021 we worked with Sean Walters to design our pool and related landscaping. Sean’s vision was more about redesigning our backyard and creating another living space that blended in perfectly with the existing house and the new pool. We could not be happier with the result, but more importantly, with the process. During the height of the pandemic, with pool companies swamped with more work than they could handle, Sean was easily available and responsive to all our questions and concerns. From a layout aligned perfectly with the geometry of the house to the choice of plantings that light up our yard with vibrant color, Sean’s design transformed our yard and created a wonderful new space" - Ed & Amanda S.
