Over the past few years, natural pool landscape architecture has become a hot trend. Now, when we talk about natural pool landscape architecture, we’re not talking about chemical-free natural pools that use saltwater or plants to filter the water. Instead, we’re talking about the trend of designing a pool that mimics a natural body of water but still uses convenient traditional pool filtration methods. These pools make your backyard look more serene, tranquil, and natural, and offer a unique twist on traditional pools. Learn more about natural pool landscape architecture and how to achieve it in today’s blog, below.
What Is Natural Pool Landscape Architecture?
What are the benefits of natural pool landscape architecture?
By making your pool look like a natural body of water, you can create a unique and interesting backyard living space. While we’re not all lucky enough to have homes with private ponds or a personal creek, natural pool landscape architecture offers the next best thing.
What are some essential features for natural pool landscape architecture?
Large rocks and boulders can be used for both function and form in your natural pool landscape design. They can be used to build a natural privacy wall or configured as a diving board. We’ll put them in place using a crane to add a true lagoon feel to your backyard.
Water features are another essential component to a natural pool landscape design. Waterfalls are the most popular option to feature as they offer the additional benefit of the relaxing sound of falling water and are beautiful and relaxing to watch. Or you may prefer to choose to incorporate a waterslide into your design: Imagine a gentle waterslide that looks like a creek feeding into a pond in your backyard. Pretty tempting, right?
Plants, trees, and other vegetation will be important for giving your landscape design a coherent, natural look. They can be used to create a natural privacy screen and your landscape architect will take your existing landscaping into consideration while choosing plants that will enhance your current design.
A black bottom finish is the finishing step to giving your pool the look of a natural lagoon. We offer a variety of finishes that will complete the look of your new natural pool.
