A Pool Deck
What will accompany your swimming pool surrounding? This question is tricky, as designing the surrounding area involves some thoughtful planning. Stamped concrete is practical and cost effective, but the beauty of a pool deck using hardwoods like Redwood, Cedar, or Mahogany offers an aesthetic design appeal that concrete just can’t match.
A Garden Pool
If stamped concrete or a wood deck isn’t your choice for an outdoor oasis, a great pool design idea would be to emphasize the coping, which circles the perimeter of the pool. The al-natural look of wildflowers meeting the coping of an in-ground pool is beginning to take root as a trend among pool owners. Immerse yourself in the scent of wildflowers and cool waters of a self-created swimming hole on a hot, Virginia summer day… now that would be relaxing!
Pool landscaping design can be a great addition to your backyard dream. There are many natural rock formations in the Northern Virginia area that can be used to compliment your swimming pool and give it a more natural feel. Walkways, grottos, fountains, islands, slides, caves, waterfalls, and stone patios are some great pool landscaping features to make your pool unique for you.
There’s nothing better than grilling or having a BBQ over the warm months in Virginia. Consider a custom grill or brick oven in your gazebo or on your pool patio. Imagine yourself, the grill master, grilling up succulent bratwurst sausages and then cannonballing into the pool. You can’t deny that sounds like good summertime fun.
