Tim Davies Landscaping
These four unique pools are perfect examples of the versatility for which Tim Davies Landscaping is renowned.
The first award-winning pool – effortless in its integration with the soft landscape – was developed using 3D software to maximise its size and achieve a lush, private-sanctuary aesthetic.
Space was limited, so the builders located the pool on the boundary by stabilising the ground with grout injections. They also created an underground enclosure for the pool pump and filter, which forms part of the concrete pool shell. A swim jet and pool cover are concealed beneath a timber-clad planter that is suspended over the pool.
The ‘Classic Contemporary’ pool (page197, upper left) is modern design at its finest. T he owners wanted an entertaining space with a contemporary feel that would tie in with the existing traditional design of their house and garden.
Bluestone and timber were used around the pool, while earthy/metallic tiles were used for the waterline, water feature and outdoor shower. The pool also features a MagnaPool system, concealed automatic pool cover, and customised, hidden access panels for the pool cover and skimmer box.
The ‘Old Meets New’ pool’s organic shape (upper right) and finishes achieved the contemporary yet unique look the clients wanted. Its exterior features seamless paved capping on one side, with a full height, partially retaining feature mosaic wall and a water feature on the other side.
A raised deck area with a jumping platform helps to make the space dynamic and highly individual. Feature blade walls and standard pool fencing – which was designed to be concealed within a hedge once established – were also added to enhance the pool’s privacy.
The aim for the ‘Clear Elevation’ pool (lower left) was to give a gorgeous home an outdoor space to match. Careful consideration was given to visual impact and flow within the backyard, so an elevated, rectangular tiled pool was built to run alongside the boundary fence at lawn level.
A moat-style hedge separates the pool from the lawn and eliminates the need for fencing, while adhering to the Building Code of Australia (BCA). The garden’s sloping landscape was utilised by leaving the end wall of the pool exposed.
