Do you dream of turning your Cortlandt Manor, NY, backyard into a fabulous outdoor getaway? If your yard is dated or lacks useful outdoor living space, a backyard makeover may be exactly what you need to achieve your dream landscape. A landscape company can help you update your pool area with a stunning makeover to create a yard that is both beautiful and functional.
Update Your Pool Deck
An out-of-date or non-existent pool deck can leave your pool area looking lackluster. Your pool deck should be large enough to accommodate both patio furniture and foot traffic comfortably. It should also be free of hazards such as cracks and uneven surfaces. A landscape company that specializes in masonry installations will be able to guide you through the design process, ensuring that your pool area will meet all your needs.
Your pool deck not only offers a spot to relax and entertain, it also provides the first impression of your pool. Make an impact with premium natural stone or custom pavers for an eye-catching patio that is both durable and slip-resistant. As a Unilock Authorized Contractor, Manzer’s Landscape Design and Development, Inc. offers a wide selection of concrete pavers and natural stone ideally suited for around the pool.
Transform Your Pool with Greenery
A pool area tends to feature a lot of masonry and not a lot of greenery. Plants could be just what you need to soften the look of a large pool deck. They add texture and color, bringing your pool area to life. The right plants can help create a specific atmosphere and support your landscape design theme. If you’re interested in a tropical theme for your pool area, have your landscape company add appropriate plants in large planters that can be brought indoors when temperatures drop.
Include a Spa
There are few things more relaxing than a peaceful soak in a hot tub—especially if you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own backyard. Turn your pool area into your own personal spa with the addition of a hot tub.
A raised spa with a sheer descent waterfall flowing into the pool offers a warm spot to soak and brings the peaceful sound of moving water to your landscape. Or maximize your time outdoors by adding a covered hot tub under a cabana or pergola. If you’re protected from the elements, you’ll be able to enjoy your hot tub in any weather.
Add In-Water Features
Take your pool from standard to outstanding with the addition of custom in-water features. A sun shelf or Baja shelf adds a whole new dimension to your pool. It creates a safe area for toddlers to play or a spot for lounging in the water. Adding built-in lounge chairs will create a comfortable spot for relaxing in the pool. The addition of a fountain or waterfall cascading into the pool will create an interesting focal point and add movement to your pool area.
Illuminate Your Pool Area
A well-designed landscape lighting plan can transform your pool area from becoming a danger zone in the dark to a magical outdoor entertaining spot. Ensuring your pool area is safe and free from unknown hazards is the top priority of outdoor lighting. But it also offers the added benefit of creating a beautiful atmosphere.
A well-lit poolscape should feature a combination of both underwater and landscape lighting. Gorgeous LED underwater lighting systems make nighttime swimming possible while adding mesmerizing lighting to your pool area.
