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.
There are many exciting levels to this backyard's swimming pool: a waterslide hidden under a picturesque pile of boulders empties into the pool through a waterfall. There's a hot tub, of course. And there's a shallow kiddie pool for the youngest residents and guests.
This pool and raised hot tub were influenced by two popular design elements: a tropical theme and an infinity edge. The entire pool was raised above the ground to accentuate the infinity effect, while variegated boulders line the edge and offset the turquoise water.
