Around the New House: Landscaping

This is our new back yard. It is much larger than our last yard and when considering landscaping the possibilities are endless.
I know for sure that we are doing a pool, some sort of structure for sitting under and a shed to be used for storage and as a change room.
I want the design to be more linear than our last yard that had a kidney shaped pool and curvy gardens. To help me narrow down a style and overall look for the yard I have been saving lots of inspirational photos. I always find that whatever project I am working on, whether it's decorating, renovating, or even planning a party that compiling a file of images is a big help.

Here's what is inspiring me lately in the landscape department...

All photos from Canadian House and Home.

As you can see, for me it's all about rectangular pools, square cut stepping stones and multiple sun loungers.
We have a landscape designer drawing up some initial plans so we can get an idea of what the main aspects will look like. Still need to determine materials, stone finishes and plants/trees. I am looking forward to seeing what the final plan will look like and hopefully if all goes well we will be breaking ground in June.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend!
