Backyard Oasis

This is our new Backyard get-away! Since we have so many beloved animals to care for, we do not go on vacation. Now we don’t have to. With 13,000 acre, Lake Anna ,directly across the street and our new backyard paradise in place, who needs to spend money on vacations when you can add it to the equity in your home?


When we put the pool in above, the pool now, below

This top of the line, natural looking pool is 43′ by approximately 23′ with an eight foot deep end. It has a six foot underwater bench near the waterfall and a loveseat at the deep end. The sides are made of ,smooth as silk, marblite plaster. That means NO LINERS to have fix and/or replace, ever! This pool comes with a lifetime transferable warranty, and is very low maintainence.The plaster is tinted a darker color to give the water a natural, lagoonish appearance which is a gorgeous teal green color.Thank you Derian Pools in California (Featured on Home and Garden Television www.derianqualitypools.com. ) for the plaster color tip, and info on where to buy the tinting!! We have natural bluestone coping surrounding the pool and a natural bluestone and rock waterfall, spilling into the pool, creating the most soothing and relaxing sounds. In the landscape we have planted 2 varietys of bamboo along with Olive trees, Pampass grass, flaming red bush, boxwoods, and lillies, with windmill palms, saw palmettos and banana trees..(Yes, there are varietys that thrive in VA) We have a huge brick firepit/grill combo and a handmade wooden arbor with a bench underneath and have wisteria growing on it. The patio is made of sorrentine colored navastone.
