The Benefits of Pools
A pool can be an incredible addition to your property, whether it’s your primary home or second home that’s used for getaways with family and friends. More importantly, it’s an investment that can last for years, bringing hours of enjoyment and acting as a private oasis to get away from it all.
A well-designed pool and accompanying landscape can also increase your property value, moving your home to the top of the list when it comes time to sell. Owning a pool can be a major perk, especially for buyers who are looking for a private oasis during our warm Michigan summers.
The Design Process
If you’re asking yourself, “Should I hire a landscape designer or a pool company to install my pool?” you’re asking yourself the right question. Design is a very important part of integrating a pool into your natural environment, landscape, and outdoor living spaces. We offer a range of design levels, from basic to plus, that will match your budget and needs.
Clients who have tried to self manage or let the pool company run the project have often found themselves frustrated with the final details, quality of work and the amount of hassle involved in coordinating the trades and permits.
Using a landscape designer to design a pool means that you’ll receive a customized design that takes into account the manmade element of a pool along with the environment that surrounds it.
We complete a thorough design survey to see just how your intentions for a pool will best harmonize with the existing property and conditions. We will create a conceptual plan that outlines every element before we narrow in on a final design. In addition to comprehensive master plans, we offer quick conceptual sketches for lower-budget projects.
Installation and What to Expect
There are multiple elements involved in designing an in-ground pool. We will consider the pool and supporting infrastructure (water lines, electricity, etc.) but also the hardscape and landscape surrounding the pool such as patios, decorative planting, and hardscaping, outdoor kitchen areas, or even multi-level areas. We will also consider the site itself as grading or amendments may be required.
Modern pool technology also means that there are several features available to enhance this investment even further. We will work one-on-one with you to create the pool of your dreams, whether it includes specialty lighting, custom steps/benches, a pool grotto, or an additional spa area. Our team will create an appropriate timeline so that from start to finish, delays and unexpected issues can be minimized.
Using a landscape designer to design your pool means that you won’t just get a pool, you’ll get a new environment that you can enjoy now and for years to come.
