The 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.

The design team at Wheat’s will work with the natural topography and other features of your property along with the architectural character of your home to ensure that your pool is a beautiful extension of your living space and structurally sound.

Careful planning and quality construction are vital to the long-term success of your project and achieving the ambiance you desire. An artfully designed landscape will enhance the pool environment and align with your personal taste and lifestyle.

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 how you plan to use the space and the overall look you hope to achieve with your new swimming pool.

Designing Your Swimming Pool or Spa

The key to creating an impressive inground pool and overall landscape design is to 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 use out of your surroundings.

Many swimming pool styles 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-style figure-eight 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 area is always a wise choice, as these plants tend to flourish without constant maintenance. We’ll keep in mind elevation changes and sightlines to ensure none of your plantings block your pool views once they mature.

Once you communicate your ideas, our landscape designers will perform a complete site evaluation and survey analysis, obtaining local municipal codes and standards.

From there, we’ll 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’d like?

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.
  • River Rok natural pebble pool finish: Mixing natural aggregates and fortified natural cement, River Rok finishes are extremely durable and available in various colors.
  • Lightstreams™ glass tile: If you’re looking for a truly extraordinary feature for your new 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.
  • 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 a look 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.

Hot Tub & Spa Design

With or without a swimming pool in your backyard, a hot tub can be a great way to relax after a workout, a long day at the office, or just for fun. Wheat’s Landscape offers beautiful and durable stainless steel hot tub options from Bradford Products that are sure to meet your home spa needs.
