- Landscape Designers were Andrew Lastella and Jason Sponzilli

This residential landscape design project took a basic backyard and transformed it into an exciting outdoor living space for the entire family.
Sponzilli Landscape Group completed the backyard transformation in two phases.
Phase I started in October 2015. The outdoor living space design included:
- A 14”x16” fiberglass pergola
- A built-in fireplace
- A custom outdoor kitchen
- Outdoor lighting
- Seating wall
Phase I also included an upgrade to the existing patio that included a new border of Techo Antika pavers.
Sponzilli started Phase II in July 2021 and completed it in March 2022. This phase included the dramatic additions of:
- A 16’ x 32’ vinyl liner swimming pool with an automatic cover
- A pool patio
- Privacy plantings
- A shed/changing room
- Regraded areas to direct water flow
- A cedar border for new children’s playset
- Playground safe mulch
Outstanding landscape design was evident throughout the project. Complete attention was paid to details, both large and small.
Pavers included grass joints to bring attractive natural greenery into the new pool patio area.
The project also involved the installation of a seepage tank, required by the town, to control groundwater runoff from the backyard. A sump pump and piping were installed to protect the pool liner from possible water damage.
Finally, an attractive boulder wall at the deep end of the pool helps direct groundwater flow.
