Deck & Patio Provides Colorful and Unique

Landscape Design


            This 22-year-old gunite pool needed a facelift. A nonfunctioning waterfall, uncomfortable spa and grass as its patio were the reasons the client called Bill Renter from the Deck & Patio Co of Huntington Station.

            The first step was to demolish the existing spa, waterfall, wood retaining wall and rock coping. Next, the new acrylic spa was installed. A seven foot high moss rock waterfall and boulder coping were installed beautify and retain the sloping woodland behind the pool. Because of the natural setting of the pool, careful consideration was given to the patio material. The designers suggested a tumbled pavingstone and wall system called techno-bloc. The colors of the patio were a blend of a tan color and a natural grey color to tie in with colors of the boulders used. The patio has the look of natural stone, but it is cool even on hot summer days and has the durability of a paver patio. This new technology in the paving and matching wall systems insures a life time of easy car for these surfaces.

            The final touch was the colorful landscape which is beautiful despite the challenge of a mostly shady woodland setting.

    What colour pool liner did you use? It is so beautiful, great natural match to the grounds.

      There’s no liner involved. This pool is a Gunite (concrete) pool and the color comes from the plaster finish which was called “dark.” Hope this helps.
