Austin, San Antonio Waterfalls, Grottos, Deck Jets & More
Water features can bring a whole new dimension to your backyard pool. From something like a simple laminar to a more extravagant feature like a natural waterfall, the concept of moving water attracts attention and gets people talking. By incorporating water features into your poolscape, you’ll not only add an artistic element, but more depth and character, as well. From tanning ledges, grottos, sheer descents and more, the pool design experts at Texas Pool & Patio can help you select the right water feature that complements your swimming pool and backyard retreat.
The use of LED lighting in your backyard poolscape adds a whole new dimension to the look you’re trying to achieve. Whether you’re incorporating LED accent lighting throughout the project or into custom features like rainfalls, bubblers and steps, a little illumination goes a long way.
Waterfalls & Grottos
Most popular with freeform and lagoon-style pools, waterfalls can be constructed of a variety of stone and stone-look materials and in any size and scale. An especially popular trend is a larger-scale waterfall that creates a hidden, swim-in grotto, equally perfect for an exciting childhood adventure or a romantic stolen kiss!
Gone are the days of the unattractive plastic tube slide. Our custom built pool water slides are designed to accentuate your overall pool design while offering hours of pool fun. Each water slide is crafted to fit your pool’s shape with colors and materials that complement your coping and pool deck.
Swim-Up Bars are a great way to bring the fun of having a cocktail or food served to you in the pool because if you don’t have to get out why would you? These areas feature built-in bar stools made of stone, tile or precast finishes and a bar that can be adorned in glass tile or beads. The options are endless.
Sheer Descents & Scuppers
A sheer descent or scupper is a straight, linear water feature that drops a clean, sheet of water into your pool. These water features create a soothing water sound with an elegant, majestic look.
Deck Jets use air to shoot streams of water from the deck into the pool. Laminars arc across the swimming pool for an elegant and fun addition to your swimming pool. They make for particularly fascinating water features at night when backlit with LED lights. Your kids will love chasing the glowing water!
Tanning Ledge, commonly called a sunshelf or baja bench is a flat ledge typically located at the entrance of the pool. This tanning ledge is the perfect location for a lounge chair or the sun-worshipper who wants to avoid getting overheated from the sun or fully submerged while enjoying the pool.
Beach-Entry, also called zero-entry pool is designed with an entry that gradually slopes from the deck into the water, like a natural beach. No stairs or ladders necessary to get in.
Fire features are water features with a split personality! During the day, they are unassuming, but are a great focal point of your swimming pool. At night, they come alive as their flames create a beautiful and dramatic ambiance.
