A Stunning Family-Friendly Poolscape by Adams Landscaping
This multi-functional pool is complemented by a stunning poolscape design by Adams Landscaping in Hudson Valley, NY. The design features a charming combination of pea gravel, Unilock Umbriano pavers in the Winter Marvel color variation, along with Brussels Fullnose coping for the pool edge.
The pea gravel border to the Umbriano field pavers features low, inconspicuous landscape lighting fixtures that highlight the rich textures and detail of the pea gravel at night. While pea gravel can add a captivating look and feel to a hardscape – and in this case, perfectly complement the Umbriano pavers – it can become an attractive bed for weeds and other unwanted plants. To counteract this, Adams Landscaping avoids applying pea gravel directly on top of soil, and instead always ensures a layer of landscaping fabric is placed first to discourage weeds and keep the pea gravel in place.
The pool features double ladders, a diving board, and steps, allowing multiple entry and exit points to the pool, making this an ideal setting for hosting large pool parties. For homeowners, poolside safety is always a concern, which is why an adequate depth has been allowed to accommodate the diving board. New York State Department of Health recommends a minimum of 9 feet for head first diving and a minimum of at least 6 feet of depth for starter block-style diving.
Adams Landscaping has further ensured safety with their choice of Umbriano pavers and Brussels Fullnose coping. The non-slip surfaces of both pavers and coping are ideal for a poolside setting, while the fine surface and rounded profile of Brussels Fullnose ensures a safe and comfortable pool edge.
