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.
