SURROUNDS Landscape Architecture + Construction

Hi Sandra, the overall elevation change from the patio to the grade level above the highest retaining wall is 8.5 feet. We used large boulders and a CMU wall to retain the slope. The river rock swale handles the flow of stormwater during rain events.

Hi Sherry and Michael, the gable wood is custom cedar. We were not a part of the home construction. However, Kohlmark Architects might know the answer.

Hi Gloriaduncan. Thank you for your question. The pool house was designed by KohlMark architects. They would be the appropriate folks to reach out to.

Sylvia, thank you! Unfortunately, we are not able to provide the color of the siding, since we were solely involved with the landscape design and construction.
