In typical rural esthetic, the grounds of the Greene County Residence are rolling and untamed. To work with this natural terrain, as well as juxtapose it, Susan Wisniewski Landscape created an angular outdoor pool setting that is both traditional and modern. The flat, rustic pavers surrounding the watering hole fit with the conventional barn, but the pool’s trapezoidal shape adds a geometric punch to the otherwise organic setting.

One end of the pool’s enclosure is offset by the red barn, complete with silo and feed shed. The rest of the pool looks out to the horizon and surrounding hay fields in an infinity pool-like way. In its corner is a small hot tub area, outlined by another bold, geometric shape.

Other elements that are in keeping with the property’s rustic feel are a fieldstone wall and long hedgerow of lilacs. On the other hand, trees are planted asymmetrically, a match for the uneven shape of the pool.
