It always results in a great outcome when we are involved in the pool & landscape design at the earliest stage of a new home or home renovation project. When space is tight, access limited & earth works & structural builds are involved it is essential [& can be a huge cost saving exercise], to be involved during initial concept planning process.
The Clients were referrals from friends who had undergone a similar build, so were more than aware of these advantages. We were able to discuss all considerations with the Building Designer & Client, allocate space & traffic flows for the required alfresco, dining patio, pool patio, pool & access steppers, & essential lawned games area, & the logical, easy flowing linking of all spaces in what was a relatively confined space. Being a south facing back garden, the pool was positioned to gain maximum sun, & the screen planting to be deciduous to allow winter light into space.
This early Planning resulted in an outcome that met the Client's brief, & saved them money in the related constructed costs
