Pool & Water Features


As Texans, we are blessed with many days throughout the year that are warm enough to be considered “pool weather.” If you’re looking for the best way to stay cool during the dog days of our Dallas summers, consider a pool landscape design from Scapes Inc. Why not take advantage of that extra space in your backyard and the extra 100+ degree days we see each year by installing your very own in-ground swimming pool? Our Dallas-based, pool landscape designers will work with you to create a beautiful outdoor living space, right outside your back door.

Along with providing a great place to enjoy the outdoors, custom pool landscaping can also add to your home’s value. At the same time, a pool is a great place to keep the temperature of you and your loved ones at a comfortable level. And if you’re looking to extend your entertaining space, adding a place to keep cool that is enhanced by pool landscaping is a great option.

Gunite pools (also known as in-ground swimming pools) are one of the most popular swimming pool choices in the Dallas metroplex. To put it simply, the hole is dug in the shape that you desire, reinforcing rods are installed, gunite (a mixture of sand and cement) is sprayed onto the surface, then it is troweled smooth. Finally, the pool installation technicians apply plaster or paint for the finishing touch.

Customized Swimming Pools to Complement Your Dallas Home

The experienced pool landscape designers at Scapes Inc. enjoy creating custom, outdoor spaces that reflect the personality and needs of the clients they serve. During the design process, they will work closely with you to assess the options and limitations of your space, and then develop a pool landscape design that complements your home and lifestyle.

There are many pool design options to consider.

  • You can decide on colors, different tile styles and shapes, surrounding deck areas and even a custom engraving for the pool bottom.
  • The swimming pool’s shape can also be customized, and designs range from simple to exotic, geometric to freeform. The sky is the limit with custom, gunite pools.
  • Creating beautiful spaces adjacent to your pool is also taken into account – from plants and trees, to hot tubs, to sculptures and more.

Add a Water Feature for Visual and Audible Interest

Water features can also amp up the appearance of your pool landscape while providing a little relaxing ambiance for your ears. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Waterfalls
  • Vanishing edges
  • Weeping walls
  • Swim-up bars
  • Water arches
  • Aerators
  • Fountains
  • Rain ledges and more!

Place these features next to your new pool, outdoor kitchen, living area, bar or wood burning fireplace and you will find yourself enjoying those hot, Dallas summer days in a whole new way.

Scapes, Inc also provides landscaping water features such as fountains, ponds, streams and waterfalls to enhance your property. Give your home the feeling of a serene lost city with sculptures or a private oasis dressed with ornamental trees and shrubs. Boost your circle driveway’s appearance with a centerpiece, such as a five-tier white marble fountain. Add tranquility to a cozy backyard with a stone waterfall. These options and more are available through Scapes, Inc. – just ask!
