Designing a Pool Oasis

Seeking to create a tropical oasis in her backyard, Gwelup homeowner Kristin Stevens enlisted The Concrete Building Company to establish a small plunge pool to relax in and around.

Ms Stevens was after a modest-sized pool to keep maintenance costs and efforts to a minimum.

“I have always enjoyed the water and wanted my own little place to relax in, so when I originally set the plan in motion to upgrade my home six years ago I decided it was a must-have item,” she said.

“I wanted tropical plants surrounding the pool for a real oasis feel. Due to the climate it was hard to achieve such a look, but I found a happy medium.”

Because the location of the pool was going to be close to the block’s boundary, its concrete shell went in prior to the home’s slab going down.

This meant it sat empty for a year before the team at The Concrete Building Company could return to complete the build.

The Concrete Building Company Sales and Marketing Director Helen McGowan said the team provided Ms Stevens with guidance on pool equipment choices and design to suit the space.

“The design of the pool was altered, with our suggestion to fit a bench seat with planters either side to make it a more decorative finish,” she said.

“The Concrete Pool Company did all the paving around the pool and property, as well as the stone cladding on the front of the property, so it was great to see the whole transformation from empty plot to completed house.”

The pool was rendered in Duraquartz plaster, with travertine headers and paving.
