Pool Surrounds & Water Features

Your Dream Turned Into Reality

Stonework around Pools and Water FeaturesThese days more and more families are now opting for “staycations,” which allow them to vacation and relax in their own backyards.  With this non-travel trend more Canadians are looking at upgrading their backyards and putting in pools to enjoy the summer months.  With a pool you have a spot to get together and enjoy family and friends, convenience, and a place to make memories over the years.

To make your pool blend into its surroundings it is important to get a landscape professional in to design the surroundings around the pool.  The hardscape features that surround your pool are normally materials that make your pool landscaping design come alive.  Patio materials for your pool surround usually consist of paving stone, natural flagstone or poured concrete.  Our design team will go over the wide variety of options and help you choose the best products for your outdoor living space.

Planting is a key feature around a pool as they fill in the landscape and complete the look of the project.  Keep in mind plants require maintenance and need to be routinely watered to ensure the aesthetics of your landscape will not suffer.  Our professional team will come up with a detailed design to compliment your pool along with your personal wants on level of maintenance.

Along with planting, lighting plays a key element when it comes to pools whether for beauty or safety.  Focal lighting can add drama to the landscape and can have great reflective qualities on the surface of the water.  Focal lighting accentuates key elements to make it stand out from the rest of the landscape (water features, unique plants, statues).  Proper usage of lighting in and around your pool will take your landscape from ordinary to extraordinary with just a flick of a switch.

A water feature for your pool is a worthy investment, as it adds a unique sense of style and richness to your pool but most of all it adds tranquility.  Customers love the calming sound that comes from their water features, the sound of  staycation and calm running water.  Simply put, there is something very tranquil and relaxing and floating in a pool with the sound of cascading water.
