Any swimming pool builder worth their weight in salt will tell you that your swimming pool environment is just as important as the pool itself. How you choose to design the area around your pool can either make or break the cohesion and overall aesthetics of the swimming pools design. Rarely does a pool look gorgeous, when constructed and placed in the middle of a sea of Kool Deck concrete. Do yourself a favor, even if you have to finish building your pool in stages (that is if you can’t afford it all at once). Make plans to build your pool, and then complete the pool environment at a later date. That’s once your savings has had time to recuperate from the pool build. If you can do all at once, even better.
Your outdoor living area environment is where you’ll be spending the majority of your time when summer rolls around, you’ll swim a lot, but the area around the swimming pool is your place to barbecue, party, relax, and soak up the rays. You’ll be spending more time socializing around your pool, then actually swimming in it. Your outdoor living space is a significant part of your complete experience. How you design it is up to you.
Whether you choose a design that resembles a tropical oasis, desert island, a rockscape retreat, or modern style pool aesthetic, you’ll want to give the swimming pool surroundings & outdoor living area some special attention. We understand what it takes to create the ultimate outdoor living and entertaining space. A special place to make memories with your family and that select group of friends that teach their kids it’s never okay to pee in the pool.

Redefining Rockscape Swimming Pools
Rockscape swimming pools, when executed correctly can be an impressive and attractive feature of your home or commercial property. Sometimes rockscape can be overdone though, a complete rockscape swimming pool is not ideal, there are a few design implementations that have done it tastefully. For the most part, we recommend staying away from doing all rockscape swimming pools, especially when using artificial stone (even though the artificial stone is almost always what the other guys use when they do full rockscape pools). The old saying “Sometimes less is more,” definitely is applicable when it comes to rockscape. A few well placed natural rock formations, stone boulders, or maybe even an authentic stone waterfall will make your rockscape pool feel just as natural as the real thing.
It comes down to your personal taste and preference. If you want to do a full natural rockscape pool design, it’s going to end up hitting you where it hurts, in your wallet. We can assure that when a real natural stone is used over a faux stone, it can be awe-inspiring and almost magical. Below, we’ll cover a few of the expert tips & tricks to getting an authentic and natural rockscape swimming pool environment.
Natural Rockscape Pool Designs
Clarity Pool Service delivers rockscape swimming pool designs that will have you stepping into your backyard and instantly being transported into nature (where rockscape pools occur naturally, co’mon). The first trick is to use a naturally occurring or native stone to your local region. The last thing you want people to think is that your rockscape pool looks out-of-place. The whole point is to mimic the real environment that occurs in nature.
Second, you’ll want to make sure to select a stone that also comes in a type of decking medium or natural stone tile. The idea is to install a decking made of the same material you use for the rockscape accents and or waterfall around the pool. Proper use of these materials will make the entire environment feel convincing, aesthetically cohesive, and naturally occurring.
Last, we recommend installing authentic stone accents around the pool rather than a complete rockscape design. We promise it’ll look much classier. Below you’ll find s few Rockscape Color Scheme Infographics for some of the most popular rockscape pool themes. Keep in mind that you’ll want to choose a color scheme that matches your local environments natural color combination. There are exceptions to every design rule though.
