Tranquil Freeform Escape

Nestled in rock out cropping, the upper pool (spa) is an excellent spot to soak and enjoy the setting. Not overstated, a mound is created and planted to create water source of the gentle cascade down into the pool and into the spa. The upper pool (spa) has three depth levels. The shallow shelf allows a much bigger surface area for visual effect without a large increase of gallons to heat. This shallow shelf also provides another level of seating and acts as the top step for access. Most importantly, the ring of boulders can have some natural irregularity without compromising your back. The middle shelf is your typical bench with hydrotherapy jets and your foot well is equipped with its own set of hydrotherapy jets for legs and feet on its own booster pump. The diving board is recessed for less visual impact. A large tanning ledge is enjoyed by kids and dogs with room for both. The planting pocket brings a little more greenery into views from the kitchen and family room. The table and chairs are placed at the end so as not to block any views from the house or covered porch. Enjoying the peaceful tranquil setting start to finish of everyday equals paradise and that is what pools and spas are all about.
