Latest Pool Designs

What do you want your backyard environment to look like? Do you want a traditional look? A natural look? A beach in your backyard?

Swimming pool designs have changed dramatically over the past the last 20 years. When many of us were children, rectangle-shaped pools were the norm. As time passed, kidney-shaped pools became the norm. Swimming pool designers have really been creative which has changed the look and feel of a swimming pool. Following are some of the designs that are have been popular as of late:

Natural Pool

This is the current trend-to make the backyard look like a dark lagoon surrounded by landscaping. This is done not only by designing a freeform shape that flows, but also by using a dark interior finish, flagstone coping surrounding the pool, and installing waterfalls or boulders on the pool. Natural pools have are becoming more and more popular as people want their pool to look natural.

Vanishing-Edge Pool

The vanishing edge pool is common in areas that have more elevation changes, such as hillside construction, than the Denton area, but it is still a design worth mentioning. The vanishing-edge pool is a pool design that is most often used to enhance a lake, ocean, or valley that is just beyond the pool. The back wall of the pool is lowered allowing the water to fall into a catch basin just below the main pool, allowing the pool and the background to appear to become one. In the appropriate setting, this is a beautiful design.

Beach Entry Pool

Beach entry pools are pools that have a gradual walk-in entry into the pool, much like a beach into the ocean. It is great for small children and can be used as a shallow water tanning area and can also give a pool that tropical beach look.

The fellow who came to the house and showed me how to work the filters, pumps, etc. and let me do it hands on so I knew what to do myself.  Very informative, friendly, and “pool knowledge” are not silly questions.  They understand not everyone knows about pools.  Very knowledgeable staff.  I felt every employee, either in the store or those that came out to the house knew exactly what they were talking about. - JoAnn O.
