Custom Pool Splendor

Greenwich, Connecticut

A striking black-onyx-coated custom swimming pool and spa with a waterfall is the centerpiece of this one-of-a-kind landscape design. A white Chinese granite deck surrounds the pool and connects the many other luxurious yet functional features the yard holds — including a cozy radius gas fire pit and self-watering planter pots. Odd Job Landscaping embedded fountains in the deck to create elegant arches of water leading to the pool, adding to the sense of motion and beauty established by the waterfall.
