Whether you are incorporating a swimming pool into your existing landscaped garden, or including one in your new build, Western Landscapes are able to cater to your needs. We specialise in clever pool designs, merging innovation and practicality in a way that reflects your individuality and sense of style.
The finish for your pool comes down to personal preference. A concrete finish is more customisable and can be designed to suit the size and shape of your area. A fibreglass finish is easily maintainable, durable, and quick to install due the majority of work being completed in the factory.
Pool fencing is a crucial element in the design of your swimming pool for safety regulations and to enhance the overall look of your pool design. Fencing options typically include glass, aluminium, or masonry walls. Western Landscapes’ designers and pool builders can work with you to find the perfect option to suit your pool landscape design.
Of an evening, your pool area can truly come alive with the help of a carefully considered pool lighting design. Effective pool lighting works to create an inviting atmosphere and draws the eye in, forming a focal point in your outdoor space. Western Landscapes can provide the appropriate lights to get the most from your swimming pool.
The surrounds of your pool is where you truly get to enjoy the oasis it creates. Ideally this surface will be cool under-foot and safe for those using the area. Western Landscapes recommend choosing a surface that offers both these functions, yet still works to elevate the overall design of your backyard.
The addition of a water feature to your pool design can be effective in further emphasising your swimming pool as the focus of your outdoor area. Western Landscapes offer water feature options such as, waterfalls, blades, spouts, jets, fountains, and water decks.

What to consider with your pool design
The visibility of your pool is something that needs to be carefully considered. We work with you to understand how much of a focal point you want your swimming pool to be within your landscape design. This helps us to determine the ideal, shape, location, and size of your pool.
Location and heating
The location of your swimming pool within your landscape design can determine the need for heating. If you opt for a location that is shaded, you might wish to install a heating system in your pool. Whereas, a pool situated in full sun will most likely have warmer water and may not need to be heated.
Safety and traffic flow
The flow of space around your pool is important for your enjoyment and safety. The ability to roam around your pool comfortably and without obstruction is a key design consideration. We carefully consider where people will be sitting, walking, and relaxing, so steps, ledges, gates, and communal areas can be designed to suit.
Endless pool designs
Offering an elegant and timeless feel, formal inground concrete swimming pool designs suit the aesthetic of many properties.
Vanishing edge/ infinity pools
An infinity pool is a premium design, with the pool edges the same level as the water, creating a vanishing effect against its surroundings.
If you have a narrow space or enjoy the health benefits of swimming, a lap pool could be the right fit for your outdoor space and lifestyle.
Acreage pools are larger in size than regular pools and allow for the incorporation of an entertaining area within the pool design.
If you have a smaller outdoor area, a plunge pool could be the perfect option. It allows you to cool off but still works within the available space.
Spas are a luxurious addition to a landscape design, working as a stand-alone feature or as an addition to a larger pool design.
Free form pools
Free-form pools allow for high levels of customisation. Because of the flexibility in their design, these pools are ideal in any size backyard.
Frequently asked questions
What is the best shape for my pool design?
Oval pools work best in larger yards where they can be incorporated into a ‘backyard oasis’ using palm trees, rock formations, and waterfalls to create a relaxed setting. Although oval pools suit many property styles, they are most commonly seen in older, Victorian style houses with large backyards.
As the name suggests, this pool shape is rounded at both ends with a curve inwards at the centre. Kidney shaped pools are popular in gardens that have a softer, natural aesthetic, as the shapes creates a lake type feel. The curved edges also mean water flows more smoothly.
Figure of 8 pools
Figure of 8 pools are designed around the curvature of the number 8, making them larger at the top and bottom with a narrow centre. Like kidney shaped pools, this design lends itself to a more natural looking pool area and water flows smoothly off the soft edges.
Although rectangular pools may not be the most creative, they are a popular option for families due to their practicality, ability to fit in smaller spaces, and because they are easy to landscape around. Rectangular pools are also the ideal shape to create an infinity pool.
Lazy L pools
This unique pool design shape caters for smaller or differently shaped yards. It is designed as a capital “L” with a slim vertical section and a wider space at the horizontal. This gives you the benefits of a pool that has the capability to swim laps as well as a place for recreation.
Circular pool designs can be popular with families as their shape offer a playful and communal feel. This design can also be easier to maintain as their shape doesn’t allow for ‘dead spots’, which is an area where there is less water circulation and can lead to bacteria build up.
Free form pools
Taking the shape of basically whatever design you choose; a free form pool design works for any size or shape backyard or outdoor area. By being fully customisable, this shape allows for creativity and may work best in a free-flowing, imaginative outdoor space.
This style of pool design incorporates sharp geometric patterns that can be customised to the size and shape of your backyard. Geometric pools offer a formal and contemporary feel that suits a landscape design featuring more deliberate lines in the design.
Perfect for larger families or those who like to entertain, Grecian pools are known for their large size and ability to accommodate groups of people. The shape itself is a large rectangular outline with circular entry points at either end. Some styles also include curved indents on each corner.
Roman swimming pools
For a dramatic style with wow-factor, consider a Roman swimming pool design. The grandiose effect is created by a rectangular shape with domes leaning outwards at both sides. Often, one dome contains large stairs leading to the water, creating a platform great for sunbathing and relaxing.
How deep should I make my pool?
Kids play area or swimout
A kids play area should allow them to touch the bottom of the pool with their heads well above the water, these areas should avoid sloping swim outs.
Opt for waist high water of approximately 1.2m deep, which is perfect for relaxing and recreational activities, like volleyball.
A diving pool needs to be at least 1.7m deep. Importantly, water depth should always be tested before doing a dive head-first.
