With the hot weather coming to an end, a lot of people are no longer using their pool as much as they did in the summer time.  This presents pool owners with the perfect opportunity to remodel their pool while it’s not in use.

The harsh conditions a swimming pool is constantly under are exactly what causes the breakdown: water pressure, chemicals and sun exposure. As your pool starts to break down, extra maintenance is required, as well as more water and chemicals than a healthy pool. Read more…

Landscape Lighting - Extend Your Living Space


The idea of enhancing your outdoor environment with lighting is very popular, especially as we look for more ways to extend the amount of time we spend outside.

Unique Lighting

Unique Lighting

Lighting can be one of the most important aspects of landscape and hardscape design, yet it is often overlooked or underdone. Proper outdoor lighting design allows you to highlight focal points. It can also be used to enhance safety and security, to accent special trees or plantings, and to create a festive atmosphere for outdoor entertaining. Rather than buying a costly designer patio set or lounge chairs that will lose their luster by next season, invest in a new lighting scheme that will enhance your existing outdoor furniture and amenities.

Waterproofing! Is it necessary in Pool Construction?


Waterproofing

The walls and the ground of a swimming pool are subject to constant water pressure. To enjoy your swimming pool it is important to have a permanent waterproofing.

WaterproofingWhile some observe that concrete applied by an expert at high levels of compressive strength will not leak, it’s true that concrete is naturally inclined to be porous. And when you add in the fact that most swimming pools include various penetrations – for inlet and return lines, skimmer throats, cleaning systems, lighting fixtures and more – the challenge of keeping water where it belongs becomes even greater.
