Starting anew to create
a tropic-like retreat
T This homeowner in Maple, Ont., wanted a backyard paradise that would
provide a variety of amenities for entertaining business clients as well as
appeal to young imaginative minds.
To do this, The Pool Craft Company of Richmond Hill, Ont.,
removed almost every existing element in the backyard to allow them
to seamlessly incorporate a number of items on the homeowner’s wish
list. This included a spillover spa, custom slide, ﬁre pit, cooking station,
and a large cabana, which were all centred on a natural lagoon-style
swimming pool to create the ultimate backyard.
The 6- x 14-m (20- x 47-ft) pool features a picturesque rock grotto
toward the deep end, which creates a tranquil area within the pool
where bathers can escape beneath a slab shelf and be surrounded by
falling water. Adjacent to the rock waterfall, which features an integral
winding pool slide, is a 2.3-m (7.5-ft) spillover spa ﬁnished in Eramosa
tiger-striped stone and Ebel coping stone. The use of elegant, square-cut
ﬂagstone in the surrounding deck area further increases the backyard’s
level of sophistication by giving it a unique look and feel. The built-in
server, cooking station, and cabana further enhance the formal function
of the space, while the inclusion of a custom, operable glass wall system,
which opens entirely, gives the cabana its open concept appeal. The
glass wall also seals airtight to allow the homeowner to enjoy the cabana
during a rainstorm as well as throughout the winter.
Pool Craft further enhanced this backyard paradise by making every
element and feature easy to operate via an automated control system,
which not only allows the homeowner to turn on/oﬀ various pool/spa
equipment and features, but also the property’s irrigation system and
landscape lighting with a simple push of a button.
