Our professional, experienced team works with you to design and plan a custom swimming pool. Creating the project first starts with your virtual design. We use a professional CAD pool drawing program, detailing your every specification. Detailed meetings and revised drawings create the final virtual designs that will be submitted to the local building jurisdictions. We continue to monitor every phase of the build from site work to final use inspection. Whether you are installing a new pool and spa or improving an existing installation, Greenworks Designs can provide you with all the assistance you will need to complete your pool or spa area. At Greenworks Designs, we have a reputation for excellence, not because we have the lowest prices, but rather because we provide the highest value to our customers. Since your every opportunity to enjoy your pool is very important to us, we at Greenworks Designs realize the job has to be done right the first time. We have landscape architects on our team who can help you virtually design a beautiful outdoor living space.
You can look through our pool gallery to get ideas of the perfect outdoor pool area so that you can see how your project will develop from concept to completion. You are on your way to creating a lush and beautiful environment that adds depth and color to your back yard and more enjoyment to your pool. Love your view as much as you love your pool! Landscaping is about more than just planting a few flowers and bushes around your pool. It is about designing and creating a pool environment that’s easy to get to and hard to leave.
Extend your swimming season by placing your pool in an area where it will receive full sun exposure. The pool water warms up sooner in the Summer, remains warm longer as the days of Summer wane, and stays a comfortable temperature for swimmers all season long. Nearby shade can be provided by trees, awnings, arbors and umbrellas – creating a comfortable environment for those who need a break from the sun’s rays or prefer to be near a pool rather than in it. Two key factors should guide your choice of plants and materials for the poolside landscape: the architectural style of your house and the surrounding natural landscape. Start by choosing construction materials for fences, pool decks, arbors that echo the architecture of your home and are common in your region. Stacked-stone walls, wood siding, red-brick paving and split-rail fencing all help to create a sense of place and determine the style of your poolside setting. Next, anchor your plantings with native trees and shrubs, or at least plants commonly grown in your region. To create a cohesive color palette, choose foliage and flowers in colors that echo or harmonize with those inside and on the exterior of your house.
Swimming pools and their accompanying fences, outbuildings, pumps and accessories tend to clutter a backyard. With a little ingenuity, landscaping can even help camouflage many of these objects. The best pool walls and fences are high, smooth and virtually impossible to scale. Although many local building codes may only require a 4-ft wall or fence, the ideal height for a secure pool enclosure is 6 to 8 ft. Fiber optic lighting is a safe option for illuminating pools. Instead of carrying an electric current, the lines that run to under-water fixtures carry only fibers of light. Fiber optic lighting also offers more design flexibility, because it is available in a wide range of styles and colors and can be used to create special effects. Most existing pool lights can be retrofitted with fiber optic lighting.
