Swimming Pool Landscapes

The careful and informed choice of placement of the swimming pool in a garden is crucial to the resulting effect. Outdoor Creations can provide the expertise to make sure this critical decision is made correctly. The Swimming pools we design (like all aspects of our gardens) are timeless. Sometimes radical and fun, sometimes formal, sometimes classically simple, every pool is designed to be part of a total picture.

Once you have decided to have a pool in your garden plan the most important decision to make is where is it going to be located? In general it is a good idea to site your pool close to the entertaining or alfresco area. When designing the particulars of the pool, do not feel that you have to adhere to the conventional rectangular shape either. Make your pool as functional and inviting as possible.

There are several features other than the overall shape that promote functionality and enjoyment of your pool. One is the ledge for you to sit on in the pool, where you are submerged to about armpit height, the aim being to keep you cool while still in reach of the all-important drink.

Swimming pool lighting can also be designed into our plans to produce spectacular water features in its own right for your enjoyment at night.

Speak to David Kirkpatrick and his team of landscape architects and designers about designing the perfect swimming pool or spa for your property.


All great pools & landscapes start with a great design.

OUTDOOR CREATIONS is a Melbourne based multi award winning Landscape design company.

We believe that a great Landscape design is one that suits the architecture, looks fabulous, is functional and practical and is not a fashion statement that will only date.

All components of the landscape, the entertaining/Alfresco area, a swimming pool or spa, the decking and or paving and of course the plants, all have to fit seamlessly together, like a fabulous jigsaw. If only one component is considered, without taking into account the whole Landscape design, then the saying, "A failure to plan is a plan to fail", may be an outcome.

We love to design and plan fabulous gardens that people love and use.
We design small suburban gardens through to large domestic Landscapes, schools and corporate spaces.
Timeless, fabulous and practical are adjectives used by our clients to describe the outcomes we have achieved for them.
