North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Squamish, and the rest of the Greater Vancouver area may be blessed with access to lakes, waterways, and the ocean - but it's not an all-season affair for swimmers. In addition to temperature concerns, there's current, water quality, and other hazards to contend with. As a result, area homeowners with a passion for swimming are bringing the activity into their own backyard.
Are you also ready to take the plunge with your very own swimming pool? Great to hear! However, it's not as simple as a standard installation anymore. These days property owners in Vancouver are investing in pool design. Unlike traditional swimming pool installation, pool design considers the entire exterior of your property. The process merges an array of elements such as lighting, sounds systems, multi-dimensional landscaping, and of course the integration of water features. Moreover, the needs (accessibility, etc.) and desires of household occupants and all who will use the pool will be factored into the design.
As North Vancouver BC’s premier landscape design service, we understand the importance of synthesizing pool design with all exterior elements better than anyone in the BC Lower Mainland. Our portfolio speaks to this fact, but allow us to expand with a list of pool designer services that Calumma offers:
You may have heard of insulated concrete form (ICF) construction which a state-of-the-art building method that offers residential and commercial properties more energy efficient insulation. A home constructed from ICF is naturally cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, and ultimately saves property owners as much as 50% on utility expenditures. The use of ICF also cuts down the time to complete construction significantly. Well, Calumma Creative Landscapes & Pool Design has expanded the concept to include ICF when building the foundation of Vancouver area swimming pools. Your pool will be installed faster (all else equal) and will maintain its desired temperature without taking on unnecessary expense.
A pool is cool, but what about other additions that complete the resort-esque dream that you have for your new outdoor activity and leisure space? In addition to swimming pools, Calumma Creative Landscapes & Pool Design offers the following:
