Neptune Pools Project 2
Designed with family fun and relaxation in mind, this project by Neptune Swimming Pools has some serious ‘wow’ factor. The stunning granite-clad infinity wall creates a prominent feature and also serves as the pool barrier, maximising the split-level block and promoting a sense of openness within the backyard.
The 9m x 4m pool and 2m² spa were constructed using reinforced concrete and are fully lined with Ceramic Solutions tiles. Powder-blue was selected for the pool, while a contrasting charcoal mosaic was used for the spa. Fitted with a Viron eQuilibrium saltwater management system and Sunlover solar heating, the pool is easy to maintain and can be enjoyed throughout the year.
The pool and the deck were constructed simultaneously, seamlessly joining onto the existing patio through the use of a complementary colour palette and lush greenery. A bamboo ‘green screen’ planted along the boundary fence provides a private retreat, while the tranquil infinity edge promotes a serene ambiance.
