Despite the tight dimension of the site, a small lap pool and spa were designed into the terrace. There is a waterfall feature at the end into the spa. Both pool and spa are covered by an automatic cover that helps keep the heat in.
Due to the restrictions of redeveloping lakefront, you are not allowed to encroach any further than the previous building footprint with any structures. This means that the retaining walls and pool had to fit within the previous house footprint.
Making the most of a limited backyard space is this clever design that brings together a lap pool, a cascading wall fountain, a hot tub under a pergola (in the background), a limestone deck for sunbathing and entertaining and a privacy border.
Slip down to the salt-water lap pool at the right time of day and you might find a water nymph taking a dip. Perched on the edge of a hill and surrounded by lush landscaping, it's a blissfully peaceful and striking spot.
A long, narrow lap pool with an adjoining spa feature from Lang Pools blends in perfectly with the surrounding rock garden, rows of boxwoods and decking in a design by Lang Pools that makes the most of a compact yard.
A relaxed, out-in-the-country vibe informs this sleek beauty which includes recessed plantings along one side of the pool and an earth-toned paver walkway on the other. Believe it or not, this serene environment is only a few minutes away from downtown Philadelphia.
