Inground pools offer limitless design possibilities and will increase the usability and entertainment potential of your Toronto backyard. Custom-made features like waterfalls, fire pits, and seating areas will add an extra touch and transform the space into one in which you can enjoy everyday backyard getaways. Here are five features that will make your pool deck area special this summer:
Rivercrest Wall Waterfall
A moving water feature will accent and complete the look and feel of your pool area. A waterfall adds tranquil sounds and a peaceful ambience to your landscape. Unilock wall units are versatile and flexible and can be used to build virtually any landscape feature imaginable. With Rivercrest Wall from Unilock, you can create a waterfall feature with an authentic, natural rock look. This wall unit offers two subtle colors, Buff and Coastal Slate, which are designed to match any backyard style. Complete this feature with outdoor lighting for a stunning nighttime effect.
Brussels Dimensional Stone Fire Pit
A custom fire pit will add character and mood to your pool area, with fire serving as a contrasting element to the water of your pool and water features. A fire pit creates warmth and lights up the space with its wood or gas-fueled flames. Brussels Dimensional Stone provides you with the natural look of stone for your custom fire pit, and will impress with its weathered surface and quarried stone character. This wall unit comes in a range of colors, including the Limestone shade, whose blue tones will open up the area and reflect the beauty of turquoise pool water. Sierra and Mahogany Ash offer warmer tones and are perfect for creating a cozy, intimate space. The Midnight Charcoal color option, meanwhile, can be used to create striking accents in an elegant black.
Permanent Seating Area with Brussels Fullnose Coping
Brussels Fullnose coping is ideal for creating comfortable permanent seating because of its rounded edge and worn surface texture. This coping option can be incorporated into a permanent seating arrangement, as well as around the pool, and repeated in the steps leading down to the pool area, or even around the fire pit. Wrap your permanent seating arrangement around your Brussels Dimensional Stone fire pit, or have it placed alongside your pool to serve as a spectator’s bench or a place to dry off after a swim. Like Brussels Dimensional Stone, Brussels Fullnose and Fullnose Edger are available in a broad range of rich, earthy colors.
A favorite among homeowners, Umbriano is an ideal paver for pool decks and patios because of its sleek, granite-like surface and sunny color options. Copthorne, conversely, offers the appearance of weathered brick. The two complement each other perfectly. Consider paving your pool deck with Umbriano pavers and accenting it with a Copthorne border.
Pergola Supports with Rivercrest Wall
A pergola is the ultimate spot for relaxing or taking a nap in the shade. For adding character to the wooden supports of your pergola, consider making use of Rivercrest Wall’s Rapid Pillar System. This system allows the quick and easy installation of all types of pillars and can be used to add characterful footings to the structure of your pergola, making your pergola design a beautiful, stable focal point in your summer landscape.
