Pool Design Options
Swimming pools can be built in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials and designs. Our team at Grandview Landscape is skilled in building some of the most elaborate pool designs and features and can customize your pool design to create a truly one-of-a-kind backyard retreat, no matter the look or feel you’re going for.
Pool houses and cabanas are small poolside structures that provide a covered area for outdoor living. They can be large or small in size and used for a variety of purposes, including storage space for pool equipment and accessories, a place for guests to change into their swimsuits, a sheltered spot for lounging or dining, or a multi-room guest house complete with a bedroom, kitchen, living room, and bathroom.
A cabana or pool house is a great addition for your backyard, especially if you entertain frequently. You can outfit it with a kitchen and bathroom to have a convenient place to serve food and drinks while keeping guests from going in and out of the main house with wet feet.
Our team at Grandview Landscape can customize the design of your cabana or pool house so that it blends with the rest of your outdoor living environment as well as the architectural style of your home.
Lap and Formal
Lap pools are usually long, narrow rectangles (at least 25 yards long and 4 feet deep) and used primarily for swimming laps. Some lap pools can have an L-shape to provide a separate play area or kiddie pool. Because of their basic shape, lap pools work well in any surrounding and are ideal for tight spaces.
Formal swimming pool designs include Grecian and Roman pools. Both are a spinoff of the basic rectangle: Grecian pools are rectangular with diagonal corners, forming an octagon. Roman pools are rectangular with two semi-circles on each end; some Roman pool designs feature stylized corners for added interest. Grecian and Roman pool designs have a timeless elegance and complement any style of home, but especially more formal architectural styles such as Colonial, Georgian, and Federal homes.
Lagoon pool designs, or natural pools, have a freeform shape with a lot of curves and soft angles. Lagoon pools often incorporate rock work, waterfalls, and lush landscaping to help blend the pool with its surrounding environment and lend an organic appearance. Lagoon pool designs are often used to create a tropical theme or backyard retreat. They often feature a beach entry, waterfall grotto, and waterslide.
Lagoon pool designs are great for any type of backyard, especially those with a natural, rustic, or tropical setting. They’re also a popular pool design for families with children or who entertain regularly because of their fun factor and resort-like style.
Infinity & Negative Edge Pools
Infinity pool designs, also known as negative-edge or vanishing-edge pools, are artistic masterpieces where one side of the pool is built lower than the water level so that the water spills over it and into a catch basin where it is recirculated back into the pool. When viewed from the opposite side of the pool, the negative or vanishing edge creates the illusion that the water is floating in the air or extends all the way out into the horizon.
An infinity pool design is best for backyards with a picturesque view, such as a mountain, body of water, or cityscape. They also work well when properties have some sort of elevation, such as on a hillside.
Black Bottom Swimming Pools
A black bottom pool design is when the pool surface is finished with a dark gray or black material, which can consist of plaster, pebble aggregate, tile, fiberglass, or vinyl. When filled with water, the pool’s dark interior creates a reflective mirror-like surface that mimics the surrounding environment—from the landscape to the architecture to the sky.
Black bottom pool designs can be used to create an organic, pond-like pool in natural settings or a striking focal point in modern locales. Because black bottom pools reflect their surroundings, they can be utilized in any landscape. In addition, the dark interior color absorbs sunlight which can help warm the water a few degrees.
Pool and Hot Tub Overflow Combo Pools
Inground pool and spa combo designs often utilize a design element known as a perimeter overflow to create a seamless transition from the spa to the pool. The spa can be situated within the pool or be slightly raised and the perimeter overflow creates the illusion that the water is overflowing the spa on all sides and spilling into the pool.
Inground pool and spa combo designs can be any shape or size, though they are typically round or square. The raised walls of the spa are often finished in glass tiles to create a glistening iridescence as the water pours over the tiles. An inground pool and spa oveflow combo can give your backyard a very upscale look.
Waterfall Swimming Pools
Waterfall swimming pool designs add sight, sound, and excitement to a backyard and can be a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles to fit into any environment. Freeform rock or boulder waterfalls are a mainstay in backyards with a natural or tropical theme as the sight and sound of water cascading down layers of rock further enhances the look and feel of a tropical retreat or natural oasis. Many homeowners enjoy the dramatic presence of a giant, multi-tiered grotto rock waterfall; others prefer the look of multiple, smaller rock waterfalls.
Sheer descent waterfalls or sheetfalls are another waterfall pool design in which a translucent, glass-like sheet of falling water is projected from a raised wall on the swimming pool. Sheer descent waterfalls are best for adding an elegant and serene focal point to formal and modern pool designs.
