Creating the Pool Patio of Your Dreams
Sure, winter is here, and probably the last thing you are thinking about right now is a new patio for your pool. However, if your Macomb County pool needs an upgrade, or if you’ve been considering adding a pool to your backyard, winter time is the best time to start planning and designing the perfect pool and poolside patio. We’ve come up with some features that will make your poolside patio go from ordinary to extraordinary, turning your basic patio into your dream poolside retreat.
Pavers Instead of Concrete
Skip the concrete when you are putting down your paver patio. Today’s brick and stone pavers are a great option for poolside patios. They provide a much more attractive hard surface material, while also providing that safe, non-slip surface that you want around your pool. Brick and stone pavers also make poolside patio repairs a breeze. When pavers break or begin to heave or sink, we simply repair the problem areas, instead of removing entire sections of concrete. From the standpoint of looks and durability, you couldn’t ask for a dreamier material than brick or stone pavers.
Cover it Up
Your poolside patio is probably going to need a little shade, so consider adding a pergola or shade sails to your pool side patio. We can construct a beautiful shaded area whether it be a pergola, gazebo, or pavilion, to help you and your guests get out of the sun and cool down a bit. We can complement your cover, even simple shade sails by installing supports that utilize stone and brick pavers at the base, creating a visually attractive feature for your poolside cover.
Other Water Features
Your pool doesn’t have to be the only water feature in your Macomb County backyard. Consider constructing a poolside pond and water fall that creates a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere for your pool. We can construct waterfalls and ponds using the same materials as your paver patio, or consider making them a natural looking feature by incorporating natural rocks, cobble and boulders into the design. If you are looking for a peaceful place to escape the hectic parts of your life, pull up a chair to your personal pond and waterfall and relax while your children and friends enjoy the fun of your pool.
Why leave the fun and enjoyment of your new pool side patio just because it’s time for dinner? You already have a great seating area, complete with a beautiful cover and a relaxing waterfall, so why not add an outdoor kitchen to your pool side escape as well? Fresh Cut Lawn and Landscape knows how to create the perfect outdoor kitchen for your poolside patio. We can coordinate your cook station with the same stone and brick pavers you’ve installed in your patio, creating a seamless look.
Fire Pits and Fireplaces
The final touch for your dream poolside patio? A fire pit or fireplace. Hanging out poolside at night or when it gets a little cooler isn’t a problem with a brick or stone paver fire pit or fireplace. Warm yourself after a day of playing in the pool, sitting by the fire, enjoying friends and family, or just relaxing at the end of a long day in peace and quiet.
