In Diamond creek the sun beat down from the west on the windows.
The only place for the swimming pool was on the same side and that would on increate the suns reflection. So a line of upright Silver birch. Voila. The sun is screened in winter but the Silver birch losing their leaves in winter, allows in the winter warmth.
And just to cap it off, the water features mirror the birches, created from a matching house brick. Formal but environmentally responsible.
