Backyard pool additions

So you want to put in a pool?

Creating a new pool area in a backyard can be a trick. You want the pool to compliment the existing home’s architecture, but also include all the amenities that make it a special retreat for the family. Preserving yard space, adding elements for privacy, including gates and walls for safety and determining the size and shape of the pool based on the client’s needs are all important parts that must be considered when designing the new addition.

In this case, the owners wanted to create a secluded “spa” like feel that could be accessed easily from the house. They also wanted the pool for use year round – meaning they could heat it in the winter to create a giant hot tub effect and cool it in the summer to create a fun splash pool.
