The Swimming Pool Design & Installation Process

Working a swimming pool or luxury hot tub into your home’s existing outdoor landscape requires serious technical knowledge and creative design skills.  Wheat’s design team will work with the natural topography and other existing features of your property along with the architectural character of your home to ensure that your swimming pool is both a beautiful extension of your living space and structurally sound.

Careful planning and quality construction is vital to the long term success of your project and achieving the ambiance you desire. Artfully-designed landscape will enhance the pool environment and relate to —your personal tastes and lifestyle. All of our landscape designs begin with the interview process—one of the critical components in the early planning stage. It’s imperative that our designers understand not only how you plan to use the space, but the overall look you hope to achieve with your new swimming pool.

Designing Your Northern Virginia Swimming Pool or Spa

The key to creating an impressive swimming pool and landscape design is to always consider the total picture, particularly when designing individual components. It’s about making every square foot of the available land functional so you get more enjoyment and usage out of your surroundings. Many styles of swimming pools can suit your outdoor space. Here are a few ideas:

  • A combination of curves and straight lines connect to create a classic Roman-style swimming pool.
  • Free-form pools allow the designers (and yourself) free reign when creating a pool unique to your style and geography.
  • The sharp lines of geometric pools are often softened by the careful placement of plantings.
  • A retro-styled Figure 8 pool easily accepts the addition of a natural stone waterfall.
  • Rectangular or lap pools can be custom designed to fit any size backyard.

Selecting landscaping plants with a history of thriving in your locale is always a wise choice, as these plants tend to flourish without constant maintenance. We’ll keep in mind elevation changes and sight lines to ensure that none of your plantings block your pool views once they mature.

Once you communicate your ideas, our designers will perform a complete site evaluation and survey analysis, obtaining local municipal codes and standards. From there, our team will work with you to develop a pool and landscape design that suits your property, offering a range of options on pool designs, area lighting, fire or moving water accents, and entertaining and seating areas.

Complement Your Swimming Pool with Luxury Finishes & Features

When deciding on the design of your swimming pool, you might think of the shape and size of your pool as the most important design elements. But have you considered the materials, finishes, and extra features you want to include? From the paving surrounding your pool to the tiles inside it, there are many individual decisions to make!

Some of our most popular products include:

  • PebbleTec® aggregate pool finish: This durable, non-slip, and stain-resistant surface offers an earthy, textured finish to your swimming pool. You can add a shimmering or luminous quality to any of PebbleTec®’s colors to help your pool glisten. Visit PebbleTec®’s website to view each finish!
  • River Rok natural pebble pool finish: Mixing natural aggregates and fortified natural cement, River Rok finishes are extremely durable and are available in a variety of colors. See all the color options for River Rok finishes here.
  • Lightstreams Glass Tile: If you’re looking for a truly extraordinary feature for your new swimming pool or hot tub, Lightstreams Glass Tile might be the answer. Made with American-produced raw materials, these iridescent tiles provide a unique and eye-catching style. Visit the Lightstreams website to see for yourself!
  • Marmiro Stones® travertine pavers: For an elegant, classic look, you might consider adding smooth travertine paving around your pool (see below for a recent hot tub project that used travertine paving!). These beautiful natural stone pavers have an “aged” look that will give your pool an aura of timeless sophistication.

These are just a few of the many high-quality, luxury products we can use to create the swimming pool or spa of your dreams at your Northern Virginia home. For more design ideas and to get started, contact Wheat’s Landscape today!
