Most custom swimming pool designs are in the form of rectangles, squares, and circles or some variation of these shapes. The design can be more elegant and ornate (such as adding a fountain), more natural, with an emphasis on plants, trees or other water features such as water gardens, or a combination of features.
Another detail such as the patio and walkway material should be chosen with care so they add beauty to the pool design and surrounding landscape. Non-slip pavers and bricks are available for safety.
In custom pool planning and design, strategically surrounding the pool with plants, trees and colorful flowers add more beauty and atmosphere.
Another important consideration is privacy. Tall fencing that enhances your structure, pool, and landscaping and can also double as a safety feature keeping the pool area well hidden. Decks that match the fencing are an option, and outdoor furniture that suits your taste is practical and necessary for you and your guests if you plan to entertain.
Finally, exterior construction such as a doorway that meshes the look of the indoors and outdoors can be a vehicle to the outdoors without interruption, generating a seamless indoor and outdoor living space.
Clearly, careful planning is necessary to achieve the desired result. With so many variables in custom pools and landscaping, a well planned design is all important.
