Poolside Living

Glass Pool Fence
The owners of this property wisely contacted us well before the building of their new home commenced.This meant that we could maximize the size of their pool and make the most of limited space for outdoor entertaining.A concrete pool was the only way to achieve this.

Composite Timber Decking
It was important to the client that they had a shaded area within the pool area to relax with friends and family.They also considered a spa but opted for a larger pool with in-pool seating.A composite decking product was chosen to reduce maintenance.

Pool Steps Mosaic Tiles

One of the owners is an Arborculturalist who specialises in supplying Dragon Trees.So we developed the idea of showcasing one of his specimens in a planter box incorporated in the pool shell.The pool and planter are capped with Travertine Tiles. 

Potted Cycad

A colour scheme of creams,whites and browns was decided on at an early stage. It works well in unifying the areas and creating an illusion of space.This Feature Wall is cladded in a Limestone Tile. 

Exposed Aggregate Paving

Succulents make perfect low maintenance poolside plants.These two are Senico (Blue Chalk) and Sansevieria (Mother in Law's Tongue).Exposed Aggregate paving with white and brown tones ties the colour scheme together.

This custom built Cabana and sunken seating area were designed by Newforms and the landscaping works carried out by Phase 3 Landscape Construction.
