Concrete pool landscaping is an integral part of the total concept. We include the following features when we plan the landscaping of a oncrete pool project.
We like to use Eastern and Western construction elements with a combination of timber and natural stone. We use mostly batu timber from Indonesia, stone products from Asia or wholly manufactured products from Perth, Western Australia for our swimming pool landscaping.
We advise clients on poolside plants and landscaping, and can even accompany clients to the nursery to make their choices if they wish. We like to use golden cane, kentia palms, xanadu and agapanthus to soften the edges and to avoid future problems in the swimming pool with falling leaves and expanding root systems.
The swimming pool fencing becomes part of the design concept so that it blends in and works with the look of the swimming pool and water feature. Tubular steel, aluminium, wrought iron, timber and brushwood are fencing elements that can be used. Timber and brushwood are often effective as a visual screen along an unsightly fibreboard boundary fence, and they also work well to dampen the noise from happy kids playing in the water.
If you have the budget, frameless glass is a see-through option which is a very attractive addition to your swimming pool landscaping. It is also very safe as it uses 12 mm toughened glass.
Well done, Steve. The pool totally warrants the SPASA gold award. Visitors are still being 'wowed' regularly. One recently said it looked like Dubai.
