Custom Pool Design: Focus on Water Features

Are you unhappy with your current poolscape or planning on designing and building your own custom pool in the near future?  Rather than just focusing on the swimming pool’s length and shape, you should also be thinking about custom water features and how they can transform your backyard oasis.  

 

The Obvious: The Spa

Hands down one of the best custom pool remodeling projects is adding a spa to your poolscape.  There are many benefits for soaking in a spa or hot tub, including the fact that it relaxes the body both physically and mentally.  It has also been said that entering warm water and then submerging yourself in cool water is good for your health.  

 

For the Naturalist: The Waterfall

Nothing beats adding a waterfall to a backyard pool.  This beloved custom pool design water feature adds visual interest and breathtaking beauty to your poolscape, and it can complement almost any swimming pool shape and design.

Custom pool builders have come up with incredibly creative designs allowing you to build the waterfall of your dreams.  You can even create private rock caves and built-in underwater seating ledges so that the cascading water will deliver a nice, and much deserved, massage.

 

For the Showman: Deck Jets

Deck jets are exciting. These shooting streams of water add instant appeal to your custom pool design and they can be incredibly dramatic.  Opt for laminar jets, which produce a steady stream of bubble-free water, and consider adding fiber optic lighting to enhance their effect.  

 

For the Fitness Enthusiast: Resistance Jets

Want to step up your fitness routine?  Consider resistance jets.  This unique water feature provides a so-called “endless” current of water, which you can swim against to tone muscles and lose weight.  

 

For the Young At Heart: The Water Slide

Water slides offer endless fun for children and adults alike.  Modern swimming pool slides come in an array of colors, sizes and effects, so take your time looking into your options to find the one that you love. They can also be beautifully integrated into a custom pool design so that they blend right in with the overall poolscape.

4 Ways to Create a Resort Style Pool in Your Backyard

Think you need to give your backyard a huge overhaul to replicate the beautiful pools in some of the world's finest resorts?  Think again. We can help you create a resort style pool in your own backyard with just a bit of creativity, design skill, and these 4 custom pool design features:

 

Water Features

Waterfalls and fountains are the easiest way to instantly create a resort style pool. The sight and sound of falling water are synonymous with fancy hotel pools. Fountains can easily be added around the pool or patio area, and if you want even more luxury, adding a waterfall will add natural beauty to your pool area.

 

Fire Features

Can you go wrong with the combination of fire and water? Adding fire features to your pool creates a beautiful and dramatic ambiance. Watch the dancing flames come alive at night, making for an attractive focal point in your backyard space. Your senses will delight as fire turns your backyard into all-night party space.

 

Rock Features

Most resort style pools are quite naturalistic and feature a number of “natural” pieces, such as large rocks, grottos, and natural stone decks and patio surfaces.  Many of these features can be incorporated along with the waterfalls and fountains you choose to add to your space. We’ve designed and built hundreds of rock features and know how to make your backyard remind you of your favorite vacation.

 

Pool Features

One of the most highly sought after design features in pools today is a wading area. Far shallower than the standard 3 to 4 feet, these areas are incredibly versatile. They can be used as a tanning ledge, as a play area for young children, or as a splash pad for your pets. The varying depths of your pool can create several different areas for you to enjoy your pool in different ways.

Whether you have a big backyard or a small space to work with, we can bring resort living to your everyday life. You’ll be able to escape to your private retreat year-round without even having to get in the water. Dynamic sights and sounds will create an atmosphere that carries you away to another place without ever leaving your property. Your new favorite vacation will be right outside your backdoor.
