A pool with its own foot bridge and infinity edge; wide cascades over native stone; freeform pools with tiny pool houses, or splendid decking surrounding a lap pool and a spa — these and many more options are available for water features that can enhance your property and bring hours of enjoyment to your family, as shown in this assortment of pool styles by Lewis Aquatech. Have a shallow splash pool for your small fry with a gradual depth change; connect your spa to the main pool by means of an “invisible wall” of glass, or have the spa completely separate on another end of the deck; your choices are many. Depending on the shape and size of your yard, you can choose from squares, rectangles, circles or ovals — or even pools that look like natural lagoons with freeform shapes.
An “infinity” edge is a fun touch for a yard next to open country (such as woods) or another body of water (such as a beach or coastline); swimmers can feel like they’re swimming right off into the deep woods or the ocean! Add trees or floral accents in terraced or raised bed planters, in the same stone as your deck — or set your pool on a “shoreline” with mature trees for shade. You can even combine features: a spa with a cascade that flows into your main pool, with clever up-lighting or colored lighting at night, makes the space striking and sophisticated. With a little imagination and guidance from firms like Lewis Aquatech, you’ll soon have an inviting, fun water space to call your own.
