Why settle for a run-of-the mill pool experience? There are so many options out there that can help set your backyard apart from the rest. If your budget allows, then consider adding a bit more flair to create the oasis of your dreams. (Note that not all of these features are available for all material types—consult your pool builder for more information.)
Have you ever wished you could see forever? These days, vanishing edges (also known as infinity pools) give you just that, a never-ending sheet of water that creates the illusion it is reaching to the horizon. The breathtaking view is enough to interrupt your morning laps. To achieve the effect, water extends to the pool’s edge, where it is caught by a trough or basin, creating a clean, seamless expanse that melds with the landscape behind it.
Adding natural or artificial rocks or boulders of various sizes can help turn your backyard oasis into just that. Spread these accents throughout the space to create a cohesive landscape.
There’s more than one way to get in and out of the pool. Consider beach entries, which mimic the natural sloping of a shoreline, eliminating the need for ladders and stairs. A gradual slope starting at the edge of the pool’s shallow end makes entry far easier, particularly for young children or seniors.

Not only are these built-in steps functional, they can also be used as lounge areas for, well lounging, or resting after a few laps. Install hydrotherapy massage jets to take the lounging experience to a whole other level.
