Neptune Pools Project 5
This captivating, show-stopping infinity edge pool elevates this backyard into a modern haven that pairs practicality with innovation. The homeowners wanted a special outdoor space that made the most of their limited footprint. Neptune Pools worked with the client to design and build a pool that does not compromise the space, allowing ample room for entertaining and recreation.
The space’s fusion of materials is a feast for the eyes. Bluestone and Bisazza ‘Delhi’ glass mosaics are paired to make a clever, cool-toned combination, while the dark timber decking and synthetic grass softens the space, adding both warmth and texture.
The raised infinity edge doubles as a fully-functional pool fence, while the gate is cleverly concealed behind the bluestone feature wall and flows seamlessly from the decking. Subtle shadow lines, created by the bluestone feature wall, amplify the stillness and serenity of this outdoor retreat. The firepit is a real standout amongst the landscape; bordered with strategically placed lights from the pool’s balance tank to produce a dramatic yet warm atmosphere. When switched on, the fire pit creates an eye-catching effect and facilitates year-round entertaining and enjoyment of the area.
Integrating the existing lush landscaping into the overall design, the verdant greenery adds dimension to the space, softening the bold pool and entertaining area. The inclusion of synthetic grass balances the clean lines and sharp geometry, while showcasing the fine craftsmanship of Neptune Pools.
