The pool and landscape designs here differ widely one from another, but they have one thing in common — the attention to detail that Brisbane’s Ecozen Pools & Landscapes pays to integrate a pool into its environment while still providing a great swimming experience for the family. “Eco-friendly” doesn’t have to mean “dull”: take a look at the rich azure glass tiles accenting these pools (especially the darker ones that make the water itself shimmer blue), the infinity edges, and the lavish decks that allow for plenty of entertaining space. Skilled up-lighting of palms and other rich foliage around these pools provides a soothing ambience as well; one outstanding example has lighted statuary and even a separate pink-lighted thatch “hut” over the spa, for a breathtaking effect by night.
These pools aren’t only limited to massive estates either; a modest pool next to the playground in a back yard gives a family more than enough space for swimming laps, and is able to include both cascades and spa. And the “landscape” portion of an Ecozen pool is equally important; note the use of native plants and greenery, such as palms and prairie grasses, along with variegated native stone for color interest. Choose from a smooth, sleek indoor/outdoor transition from your living space to pool deck — or have varied terraces outside, with a high retaining wall against the pool, a covered patio, and even a hammock. Add to or subtract from deck design; incorporate lighting in a stone alcove — your choices are wide with a quality pool and landscape designer like Ecozen.
