Ledge Loungers and Tanning LedgesCreate the perfect relaxation space with a swimming pool that has built-in ledge loungers and tanning ledges.

Ledges will make you feel like you’re stepping into a resort pool and create that “staycation” feel in your backyard.

Depending on the size of your swimming pool and the look you are going for, waterfalls come in different lengths and styles. Waterfalls and similar water features create a centerpiece like addition in your swimming pool. They are simple additions that complete the relaxation effect of your backyard pool. Adding fire pits to your backyard pool area make it possible to extend the pool party season into the cooler months. Fire pits make for great 

places for your friends and family to hang out at the end of a long day by the pool. Another fire feature that is becoming more popular is fire bowls. They are striking and capture everyone’s attention. Fire bowls will take your backyard ambiance to a whole new level.
