Water, Water, Everywhere

Hmm….that pool design looks great, but it’s missing that something special…maybe it’s time to kick things up a notch…

Options abound—there are fountains, waterfalls, deck jets and caves to name a few. Deciding what will fit with your vision and the space available is the first step. Then you need to consider the outcome desired; some features can help cover road noise; some can block unsightly neighbors; some can just sooth and relax you on a stressful day.

Let’s takwilliamse a closer look at some of these options. Sheer descents are very popular, especially with a more modern, sleek look. These arcs of water spill out from a wall—the longer the fall, the louder the water sound will be. The pool will need a raised beam or deck to support the wall and the sheer descents. For a smaller amount of water cascading from a wall, scuppers, which come in a variety of shapes and sizes, can be utilized.

Many parts of Maui are very rocky and these rocks from your own yard may be incorporated. You might be thinking of a small waterfall or perhaps you’re thinking of something larger to include caves, grottos or a waterfall slide. You’re only limited by imagination…and perhaps that pesky budget.

Bubblers can be added to baja shelves/tanning ledges or beach entries. All that’s required for bubblers is 6” of water.
