Pool & Pavilion Backyard Patio. Commack, Long Island

Overcoming Design Challenges

Designing to overcome elevation changes

This Commack property isn't very deep. It's long but its gradually slopes up 5 feet from the house to the back. Sloped properties need creative designs to overcome the elevation changes. Our solution was creating a raised sundeck.

The Raised Sundeck

Working with elevation changes

We wanted to place the pool in the center of the yard. The yard sloped, so we designed and built a raised sundeck two feet above the pool that can host up to six lounge chairs. To retain the slope but keep a natural look, we used Long Island boulders. These large natural boulders softly transition the paving stone sundeck into the upper plant and lawn area.

The Waterslide

A perfect element for this young family

Working with the elevation change, we placed the slide at the edge of the sundeck so there the climb to the top was shorter. Easy access to the slide and restricting foot traffic across the sundeck were both important. We chose the south point of the deck to be the access point. We overcame the 2 foot elevation change with natural bluestone steppers and a dry laid irregular stone walkway that complemented the aesthetics and natural look this project achieves. Evergreen shrubs and perennial plants decorate these additions, creating a natural, fun and functional environment.

Open Wall Pavilion

Shaded retreat for hot summer days!

We created a large space with multiple areas for sitting and dining all'aperto by the pool. An open air pavilion was added to offer shade to the dining area and define distinct areas within the same patio. The more formal dining area extends to the pool's edge and offers an elegant area fit for entertaining comfortably through most seasons and weather.
