  • Landscape and rock wall formations creatively planned to provide privacy from nearby neighbors

The list is endless, but the results of a good plan are breathtaking. The plan starts with your vision, but a Master Builder can help you paint the picture. Start by listing the living areas you visualize for your yard. Such as:

  • Where do you see yourself enjoying a backyard dinner?
  • Do you see a children’s play area nearby?
  • Would you like to see the pool from the house?
  • What pool shapes do you like?

Custom pools come in endless shapes and styles. Your property and the lifestyle you wish to have around your pool have a significant reflection on the shape. Consult your Master Pools builder about the merits of different options and their personal recommendations.

No pool is complete without special features. At Master Pools we view pool planning as a reflection of your lifestyle needs. So when you are designing your poolscape consider this:

  • Water and light features
  • Safety features for children
  • Entertaining areas for guests and parties
  • Spa features
