4 Trendy Ideas for Pool Surrounds in your Flint, Midland, Bay City Backyard

A swimming pool provides a scenic focal point to any backyard, and the design of the pool, as well as its surrounds should reflect its significance. With the assistance of a professional contractor, your pool in Flint, Midland, or Bay City, MI can be both stunning and practically arranged. As modern consumers and homeowners, customization is a priority, and with a few unique enhancements, your backyard pool can meet the high standards of your property.

Water Features

Adding a water feature to a swimming pool might seem redundant, but the aesthetic enhancement makes the investment well worth the cost. Landscape specialists understand the effects of color, water, and features that play on both, and a consultation that includes a portfolio of work will help you select the right features for your pool whether it’s a waterfall, spout, or other option. Consider a pool integrated water feature built from a Unilock wall system, incorporating the tumbled antique textures of Estate Wall, or the sleek modern look of Lineo Dimensional Stone.

Swim-Up Bar

Being able to swim up to a bar at the edge of the pool is an optional feature that is perfect for those who use their pool while entertaining. With the proper materials, lighting, and construction, your guests will be beyond impressed while enjoying this unique backyard feature. For both vertical and paving options, Unilock products offer the perfect durability and luxurious style required for this sort of project.

Fiery Focus

Another element that enhances the surroundings of a swimming pool is fire. Placing a fire pit or other feature near the pool is ideal for entertaining and aesthetics. Choose from one of our fire pit kits, or construct your own custom design using our easy to stack wall stones.

Perfect Coping

The coping around your pool is an important element for protection of the underlying structure. The right coping is also a safety feature, limiting slipping and providing a comfortable surface for hands and feet. That doesn’t mean it can’t look fantastic as well. Brussels Fullnose Coping from Unilock offers all of these advantage as well as a rounded edge for safety and comfort. Available in many colors, you’ll be sure to find a natural stone to complement your landscaping and home design. To finish off your backyard oasis, consider a paver rich in natural color and texture such as Richcliff for the warmth of natural flagstone, or Umbriano for the rugged, speckled appearance of granite.

Practical Forethought

As you choose enhancements and materials for your swimming pool construction, consult professional landscapers with the experience necessary. We take the guess work out of choosing a licensed professional by offering a list of Unilock Authorized Contractors that have upheld the high standards of workmanship and customer service that we subscribe to.
