How to Build a New Pool in Maryland on a Challenging Landscape

Working with the landscape, not against it.

Our landscape architects don’t see your yard as full of obstacles. Instead, they look at how a pool can be incorporated into the existing landscape. Suddenly that big slope in your yard turns from an obstacle into the perfect place to put a waterslide! They have the experience to see your yard as a unique finished product, and the knowledge and tools to make it happen. We’ve helped many clients who came to us with concerns about the ability of their yard to support a pool realize their dreams of pool ownership with a unique design unlike anything else.

Overcoming land use issues.

Ok, so maybe the problem isn’t that the terrain of your yard is difficult to work with, but that a land use issue is preventing you from building a new pool in Maryland.

Land use issues encompass a lot of situations. For example, maybe a building setback (which defines how far a structure needs to be from another object that needs to remain untouched) is preventing you from building the pool in an ideal location. Septic tank fields are one of the most common building setback issues we encounter.

Fortunately, these issues can be overcome. We can engage in a constructive dialogue with the local regulatory agency in order to modify zoning requirements or move building restriction lines or pieces of the septic reserve area in order to allow the pool to be built in the best spot.
