Pool design is often the primary focal point when developing a residential landscape design. Whether it’s a small pool tucked into a stone courtyard or a full-size lap pool meant to command the entire garden, constructing the right features is essential to a beautiful landscape. When faced with the challenge of smaller seaside lots, adding a calming water feature or spa often help offset the pool’s size and creates a relaxing retreat from the beach. 

A pool is also an ideal place to enjoy a beautiful view or sunset. High hilltop gardens with city and beach vistas, lend themselves to terrace designs that integrate the home, the garden and the pool as one. Whether it is the modern infinity pool flanked with walls of board-formed concrete, or a classic mosaic inlay - a pool can be its own work of art - unique to both the home and its natural surroundings.
