Creating “The Natural Look”

Free-form Pools

A “natural” or “free-form” pool provides a much more relaxed and natural look. This is usually accomplished with some combination of the following:

 

  • Gentle curves; non-traditional shapes
  • Natural rock, flagstone or “rolled beams” around the perimeter
  • Rock or stone pavers, exposed aggregate, scrolled or stamped concrete
  • Natural style tile at waterline
  • Natural-looking waterfalls, grottos and water slides

 

A natural or freeform look is further achieved with abundant landscaping near the water's edge, especially with palms, ferns, and/or extensive ground cover. Darker-colored interior finishes also tend to promote a "natural lagoon" look. A beach entry is another feature that adds a certain casual look to any pool design.
