This backyard oasis is the perfect retreat for relaxation. The luxurious lagoon-style pool is surrounded by lush flowering plants and palm trees. Boulders define the wading pool area that's accented by three lighted fountain jets.
On hot days, poolside at this serene pool is where you want to be. A cupola-topped pool house provides a convenient locale to change into your suit while teak lounge chairs are a cozy spot for sunning.
This is not your average pool house: The structure includes a meditation area and fire pit. Along the back side is a spa-like glass-tiled shower and changing room as well as an outdoor shower. The building's stone wall doubles as a climbing wall and features a waterfall that empties into the pool.
It’s vital to blow out the pipes on an in-ground pool. Call a professional if you’re uncertain how to do this procedure—it’s what protects the water lines from freezing. Afterwards, plug the return jets and install a Gizzmo in the skimmer to prevent it from cracking. If you do these few tasks, you don’t have to drain the pool for winter unless you have ornamental tile edging the pool. In that case, drain water 4 inches below the tile.

The first challenge was getting into the backyard with minimal disruption, this would require importing soil to fill in areas creating ramps over walls and developed areas.
