Swimming pools offer valuable reprieve from the summer heat, a cooling microclimate in any outdoor living area.
Water features enliven a home or garden. Moving water defines a space and pools take the shape of ornamental fountains, grottos, sculptural water features or fish ponds. When designed correctly, pools offer both wildlife habitat and grow abundant plants with aquaponics and biological filtration. Natural pools are a wonderful ecological option.
Custom site designed pools offer the advantage of a more integrated development to the existing conditions and can also provide a source of low cost fill material when designed in tandem with other phases of the house or landscape.
Water is becoming an increasingly sparse resource in drought prone regions, where by both traditional and alternative methods of water catchments and storage become more imperative.
