2018 Poolside Paradise … It’s Not Too Late!

Posted 1/11/18 by LaurelRock Admin in Services, Landscaping Tips, Burt's Blog

Yes, the ground may be snow-covered, but if you are thinking about building a new pool, spa and/or patio, start planning and designing now – especially if you’d like to be swimming by the first heat wave of 2018.

Your pool and patio design should match your lifestyle, as well as complement the interior style and architecture of your home. Material choices matter as fashionable finishes, waterlines, and poolside edging work together to drive the visual impact of the finished end product.

LaurelRock’s Design/Build team can help you create the ultimate poolside environment that is not only an extension of your home but reflects your personality and the way that you entertain. Here is some inspiration from a few of our favorite masterpieces.




The finish and color or your pool are important and will drive the overall feel – whether it is warm, elegant and sophisticated, or inviting, cool and vibrant. PebbleTec® is a popular choice among many LaurelRock clients, especially for those desiring a more natural finish for their pool or spa.


The waterline tile, which is located just below the coping or deck, is typically the first element that you see when looking at your pool. Pick a compelling design, such as a mosaic, or mix two complementary tiles for a customized look-and-feel. The type of tile that is chosen can alter the entire look of the pool by creating a unique focal point that enhances the pool, water, and surrounding landscape.


The frame around your pool is one of the most important parts of your poolscape. In this example, the use of natural materials like granite flagstones aid in reflecting the natural beauty around the pool. Other popular pool deck selections include granite, limestone, and fieldstone.
