Hardscapes

Hardscapes are the best way to extend the use of your pool and to really create an inviting gathering space for your friends and family. Let California Pools help you design a unique hardscape for your family’s lifestyle that will incorporate and complement the materials you’ve used for your pool and landscaping. Decks, patios, and pavilions can be part of a pool structure and a variety of elevations can draw the eye to create a pleasing aesthetic.

Fireplaces

Another type of hardscape that is a great addition to your pool area is a fireplace. With a fireplace, you can have an actual outdoor living room that extends your entertaining season all year round. Even on cool evenings when it is too cold to swim, you can still gather around your fireplace with your family and friends. A fireplace adds romance and a gorgeous focal point to your pool and patio.

Fire Pits

A popular type of hardscape near the pool is a wood-burning or gas fire pit. Through the use of decorative flagstone, pavers, or brick, fire pits can be a beautiful addition to your pool environment. The warm fire and dancing flames invite you and your guests to just sit and relax next to your sparkling pool and enjoy each other’s company.

Outdoor Seating

Pool structures are the perfect way to create a true backyard oasis and to add to your total outdoor living experience. They can be used to bring the beauty to your ultimate backyard or provide a shady gathering spot for your family and friends to enjoy a meal.

Full Outdoor Kitchen

Arizona outdoor living at its finest. No more having to disappear back into the house to prepare meals or fetch drinks or appetizers. With an outdoor kitchen, you can keep your guests well supplied and not miss a minute of the fun — everyone loves to dine al fresco.

Ramadas & Shade Structures

Dining ramada and lifestyle vignettes — such as chaises and umbrellas resting in cool shallow water, or a fire-and-ice pit with adjacent pillowed loungers for entertaining during starlit winter nights — make you forget you’re at home and not a 5-star resort. With overhead fans and misting systems, structures serve as a cool shaded retreat on a hot summer day.

Resort-Style Elements

Consider exciting fire features, a natural rock waterfall, a koi pond, a high-definition television for game day, a gas hearth that matches the colors and textures of your home fascia, and LED lights in the pool, under your countertops or wrapped around trees. Add heating and electronic systems you can control from your cell phone app makes you feel like you’re on vacation and you’ll get to relive those memories every day.
