Here is a helpful tip to maximize the effect of a pool or water feature in a yard:

I have been working with a client who has a yard that is graded with a higher elevation in the rear portion of their yard. They were interested in putting a pool in this area, but didn’t want to have to grade the yard and wanted to take advantage of the fact that it is raised. They also have a fire pit close to where the pool would be built.

In working with them on the design we came up with a couple concepts to add an infinity edge that acts as a beautiful waterfall which can be seen while sitting around the fire pit in the yard or from outside of their living room. We also decided to move the fire pit into the infinity edge basin so water would surround it. Since they already have this raised elevation, incorporating this into the design was quite simple.

This is one of a couple of concepts that we are reviewing and deciding on:

This pool is being designed to maximize the effect with the area they have. If built, it will make a beautiful addition to their yard.

This pool was designed to be built by Certified Swimming Pools of California.
