Pool Renovation Landscape Elements

Projects comes in all shapes and sizes and sometimes thinking outside the square can customise the renovation to your pool. For instance screening out unsightly views such as garden sheds and housing out pool pumps incorporating it into the design as a day bed.

This is where the team from SDLCreations having 15 - 20 years experience comes in handy.

Pool Renovations/Design

SDLCreations feels that the key point to pool renovation and design is simplicity. A favourite of ours is resort style but also keeping it a contemporary classy look. Colours and shades are a another factor in giving an inviting feel.

SDLCreatons have reconstructed a number of pools to create more usable space around the pool area. This has been done by either decreasing the size of the pool volume to create more usable space outside the pool or if the property allows, simply extending the land. 

We do a number of simple and inexpensive renovations to upgrade and add value to your property. This consists of changing the surface area with a more modern tile and installing new frameless glass fencing, along with removing any garden beds and obstacles that use up unnecessary space.

Design - Front Wall/Fencing

SDLCreations understand that when designing elements that are to be 'visually attached' to a house, it needs to give the impression that it was built with the house. Keeping in theme and making points of detail are key factors.

Landscape Paving: Material Choices

There are a number of choices out there. Mainly man made verse natural stone.       Our company won't  use man made - basically coloured concrete.

Man made pavers don't always have colour through the whole paver therefore if chipped or scratched, then a noticeable colour change is seen. Natural stone pavers are the same the whole way through so scratches and chips are not anywhere near as noticeable.

Cleaning most Natural stone can be done with acid and strong cleaning products where as it is not advised on man made products as it can discolour or damage the paver.

We mainly use Limestone (Travertine) and Granite as they are very durable during construction and long term wear and tear. Easily cleaned and sealed and the colour fits with most of our designs.

Other products we will use is sandstone - a softer material. High pressure cleaning must be gentle on this material. It is also very porous so application of a premium sealer is a must.

The company uses another stone known as Quarrie mix which is also a very durable product and used mainly with 'crazy paving' for a more rustic or natural look. This design usually goes well with a basalt boarder. One thing to advise is not to seal basalt, or have professionals do it if you really want it sealed.

Costs: Over the past 15 years we have watched natural imported or local stone become cheaper than Australian man made products. Most landscaping companies that have been around for a while should be purchasing natural imported stone pavers at a cost cheaper than man made.
