For the Adventurous Swimmer

The once sloped backyard was unusable, but with smart landscaping, the space is transformed into a stunning swimming pool, complete with slide, waterfall and hot tub.

Liquid Arches

What might have started out as an ordinary swimming pool is transformed into an aquatic fantasyland by Platinum Poolcare. They installed eight LED laminar flow fountains and designed a fitting showpiece at the far end - a sculpture fountain mounted on a concrete basin with limestone and brick fascia and an exposed aggregate interior.

Seamless Swimming Pool

The sleek, contemporary pool has a zero edge and flows seamlessly with the lawn. The outdoor kitchen features a bar, comfortable sitting area and flat screen TVs, while a hot tub is the perfect spot to relax in this chic backyard.

Soothing Ambiance

At night, the villa casts a warm glow across the swimming pool and backyard. Trees all around provide privacy, while a custom water feature offers soothing ambient sound.

Fireside Magic

In the center of the home sits a clean, contemporary courtyard. To give the owners everything they wanted, the design team included a custom pool, modern fire pit and a patio that flows right into the kitchen. The result? A space that's ready for entertaining.

Impressive & Grand

After a dip in the pool, guests can relax and unwind in the outdoor spa. LED lighting in the pool and spa allow for nighttime enjoyment.

Lush and Lovely

Stone pavers nestled in grass outline the swimming pool. Landscaping dense with tropical plants offers privacy and a relaxing atmosphere. Pops of yellow and blue bring vibrancy and color to the pool deck.

Slide on in

The concrete boulders were constructed to take on a natural tropical feel in order to create this Balinese inspired pool. The massive waterslide is an exciting feature that connects to a swim-in cave and waterfall, and incorporates built-in speakers so visitors can listen to their favorite music.

Courtyard Refuge

A minimalist covered courtyard lounge reveals its intensely colorful interior when it's reflected by the swimming pool beneath it, revealing the warm glow of a lantern candelabra and a central fireplace otherwise contained by the room's pillared archway. In the background, a palm tree reveals a resemblance to the archway's textured pillars, demonstrating how the garden's topiary features carry through the property's architecture.

Lap of Luxury

With an elevated spa and comfortable patio seating, the home's luxurious swimming pool makes the backyard feel like an exclusive resort. Trees surround the pool, providing shade and privacy, and flowers potted in elegant urns add feminine sophistication to the outdoor space.

Nighttime Lights

Stunning Spanish-Style

After soaking up some sun on the deck, the owners and their kids can cool off in the pool. A blue tiled accent wall with three water fountains makes the space feel even more refreshing.
