Like modern home design, the humble backyard swimming pool has changed a lot over the years.
are the days of the 70s and 80s where a quarter acre block with a small
home and big backyard was standard, and a freeform swimming pool could
be built with full perimeter paving – often with no fence. Yikes. Fortunately, we’ve come a long way on the pool safety front.
the last few decades, the trend towards larger homes on smaller blocks,
along with increased planning regulation, has altered the way we use
our outdoor spaces.
For pool builders and landscape designers, this has meant they've had
to get creative about how to optimise space and cladding, often
positioning pools along retaining walls and boundaries.
a result, the contemporary pool is now more seamlessly incorporated
into a modern home. No longer an afterthought, swimming pools are the
centrepiece, reflecting changes in the way we live.
