Outdoor garden pool with Decking


A gunite concretegarden pool where decking has been used very cleverly - especially around the beach area.

One of the disadvantages of vinyl liner pools is they do not work with a beach because the vinyl liner needs at least 200mm of water over it to hold it in place.

I like the contrast achieved by the grass and hardwood decking and love the bamboo that has been planted on the right. This is not a cheap pool but it will provide a great facility in any large garden

Outdoor fibreglass structure garden pool

What a difference this economic pool has made to a pretty small garden.

A tiled pool woul not have worked as well and the decking just enhances the overall attractiveness of thegarden pool.

Outdoor infinity edge garden pool

A Liner Armee pool (double thickness 0.75mm vinyl liner with a polyester strengthening membrane and site welded and known as Alkorplan in the UK)

This pool iis a magnifcent example of an infinity edge pool - the pool plant is down the slope beyuond the infinity edge

I love the classic simplicity of this pool - note how the lack of a pool plant room enhances the attractiveness.

Outdoor garden pool

An octagonal pine structure of simplicity that really works - but I do not like the over the wall filtration units.

17 x 4 m - Ref 11

Outdoor garden pool

A masonry pool lined with fibreglass - quite unsual these days - but a very economic way to provide a large lap pool.

The lack of paving means that grass will get into the pool - perhaps In-floor pool cleaning might be a sensible option in a situation like this.

Outdoor garden pool

A shotcrete concrete pool with a plaster finish - a very luxurious pool - it is strange how the French love to build hideous pool plant rooms alongside gorgeous looking pools.

But I love the beach - these are easy to do with shotcrete

In this instance I would have done everything but design a building like that!
