When designing a family pool there are a number of elements which will allow the pool to site within the landscape and become a functional, safe and enjoyable asset to your home.
Locating pool fencing too close to the pool may create a larger living space to the balance of the garden areas although the pool area may become less inviting as it will feel cramped.
Underwater bench seating can provide a safe retreat for children to play or those learning to swim. With the water level finishing around chest height on adults when seated it also provides a great position to be on hand should children require assistance or even just provide a relaxing retreat. When bench seating is located on the side of a pool, swimmers can still stretch out to swim laps.
Not everyone like to enter with a splash and children often like to gradually work their way in. Generous steps can also be integrated into bench seating.
Wherever possible it is always great to maximise the functionality of a space and this is key with retaining around pools.
