The curves of this pool soften the straight lines of the back of the house and work well in this non-traditionally shaped backyard. The curved steps in the pool provide easy access and a nice sized baja shelf for sunbathing.

Welcome to the Butler Project

The beauty of a luxury swimming pool design lies in its ability to blend with the surrounding environment and architectural style of the home—and landscaping plays a key role in achieving that balance. The pool, even as the focal point, is only a small part of the overall design and ambiance of the backyard. It is the plants, lighting, water features, firepits, Ramadas and fireplaces that define a space and evoke the emotions felt within those spaces. Unique Company’s Designer, Mike Trail was able to capture all of that with the Butler Project. Mike built the ultimate at-home resort, which has almost everything a homeowner could ask for in an outdoor room: a Ramada that matched the home, outdoor kitchen, seating areas, outdoor fireplace, spacious deck, water features, and a pool.

This Ramada is without a doubt an outdoor great room. You can watch TV, enjoy the fireplace or share a meal with friends just as you would indoors but this great room boasts fresh air and a great view of the pool.


This magnificent fireplace and hearth are the focal point of this outdoor living room. The travertine pavers provide a durable surface for the bar top as well as the perfect cap for the hearth seating.


This Ramada offers more features than many indoor kitchens including a large BBQ grill, a side burner, storage drawers, a sink, huge work surface and ample seating.


At night, the light tones of the Ramada finishes come alive with the uses of just a few lights.
