Struggling on which direction to go with your pool? Our landscape design team comes to your property and helps you choose the perfect residential swimming pool or spa design for your outdoor area. Every member of our team is here to make sure your swimming pool or spa project is designed and installed to perfection. Create a courtyard paradise with the feel of an upscale hotel by tucking a plunge pool behind a privacy wall. Submerge a pair of chaises partially so they sit 6 inches deep to provide a cool pad for sunbathing. Add on the ability to swim up to your cabana to shelter from the sun, or even construct your cabana with a step down straight into the water! Not only will this add a luxurious, exotic feeling to your outdoor area, but it will utilize any courtyard’s limited space to the fullest. Furnishings like simple-lined loungers with generous proportions topped with plush cushions will add as much sophistication as comfort. Then add accents like trimmed curtains to complete a resort-inspired look.
Imagine relaxing poolside on a soft lounger and sipping an iced tea from behind sunglasses while the kids splash their wiggles out. A fountain will arch playfully into children’s palms, projected from wall jets high above. Spouts and fountains are a great way to entertain when little ones are around and add just enough splash for some soothing background noise when they’re not around.
Go for a minimalist feel with a pool leveled off with water flush with the deck’s edge. A saltwater pool’s ultra streamlined design creates soothing simplicity with a contemporary edgeless perimeter. Integrate the sleek expression of an infinity pool to catch and recycle spillover water. A touch of indoor homeliness can be added with a shaded sofa punctuating the far end of the pool. A simple nook or covered structure offers some shade over the sofa, and recessing it creates more living area without taking up much space on the pool deck.
Maybe a woodland sanctuary sounds more like your backyard, abundant with rocks and plantings and soaring trees that will surround your pool, making it feel more like a natural spring than a created one. Starting with an atypical shape that includes a long, narrow profile will recreate the sensation of a creek flowing through the woods. Line your backyard creek-style pool with large rocks to jut out over the surface of the water and give it a more natural feeling, breaking up the straight edge. Keeping the landscaping lush will shade the pool during certain times of the day as well. This organic approach to how the pool interacts with the landscaping will help swimmers feel more connected to their surroundings.
No matter what type of pool style you select, an outdoor shower will always enhance the utility while embracing the carefree spirit of beach life. Adding an outdoor shower is simpler than you’d think, it only takes a water source, somewhere to drain and an enclosed area for privacy. Pairing your backyard pool with an outdoor shower will make it that much easier and enticing to kick off your flip-flops and hop in for a fun family splash!
