When installing a swimming pool it is important to engage a landscaping designer with a high level of technical knowledge and experience, so that the elements around the pool such as planting, decking, accessability, privacy and durability all work together. We ensure the costs are kept within budget and all consent requirements are adhered to.
Salt water pools
In New Zealand, salt water pools are on the rise as people steer away from chemical use – salt water pools have a much lower level of chlorine and they generally require less maintenance than chlorinated pools. Contact Zones swimming pool experts to know the advantages and challenges before installing a salt water system.
Container pools require minimal earthworks and are fully customisable, which means you can choose what colour you’d like the pool lining and exterior to be, if and where you’d like stair access, or if you want to incorporate decking around it. Zones looks at the usability and aesthetics of your outdoor area when creating your pool.
Concrete pools are generally the most flexible option in terms of design and installation. They allow the greatest amount of design freedom, and can be tailored to fit any space. Zones will ensure your project complies with all local rules and regulations.
Vinyl liner pools are usually a more cost effective option compared to fibreglass or concrete pools. However, these are more likely to have higher ongoing maintenance requirements. A vinyl sheet allows you to customise shape, depth and size, which goes between the water and the pool structure. Get in touch today to find the best pool option for you.
The smooth and non-porous fibreglass pools are moulded and installed in one piece. As they are manufactured off-site they can be installed quick and easy. The strength and durability of fibreglass pools can to concrete pools, with less maintenance required.
One of the benefits of above ground pools is that these can be moved from one house to another. Above ground pools are a great choice for sloped sites & compact sections and require minimal earthworks. Get in touch with us today to discuss the stylish and modern above the ground pool option for your outdoor space.
With section sizes decreasing, you might have a tighter space in the backyard to work with, but that is not necessarily a problem. A small swimming pool can make a big difference, especially to the value of your home. They not only provide cool relief from the hot days of summer but also a focal point for family and friends and the relaxing environment that water brings.
Who hasn’t thought of having a spa pool to jump into after a long day at work? Not only are they great stress-relievers, but spa pools can also improve your health in many other ways. Integrate the spa pool into its surroundings and make it a statement piece. Zones Landscaping designers can build you a spa pool area that looks great, is built right and meets your budget.
Pools and pool fencing have to be compliant according to new legislation. Audits have shown that many previously approved pools are no longer compliant. All pools in New Zealand will need to be inspected every three years and if you are unsure of your pool’s compliance, talk to us today.
New Zealand’s Swimming Pool Specialists
Zones Landscaping Specialists have partnered with a leading New Zealand swimming pool company to provide you with a total outdoor living solution. Most tradies or swimming pool companies in New Zealand either provide the surrounding landscape or the pool itself, but few provide the total pool and landscape solution. Zones are able to do this by providing a design and build service with close alignment to our Pool supply partner.
Swimming pools have a long history in New Zealand and remain ever popular. They not only provide cool relief from the hot days of summer, but also a focal point for family and friends and the relaxing environment that water brings. They can serve the important role of teaching kids how to be safe in water.
Due to technical, engineering, consent, design and practical aspects of installing a swimming pool, they require the highest levels of technical knowledge and experience in the people that install them. Once the pool is installed the surrounding landscape must also be carefully designed and built. For example the compatibility with the chosen pool coping, in particular the adhesive used, is important. Thought must also be given to the colour and texture of the hard surfaces to avoid sun glare, slipping and tripping and durability.
Privacy is another important consideration when designing a pool area. Zones Landscaping Specialists consider different systems for different situations but examples can be the clever use of louvres, planting, fencing, screening, pergolas and pool fencing.
Zones Landscaping Specialists can also offer a spa pool as part of our solution or can incorporate an existing spa pool into your outdoor design. Many of the same issues apply with swimming pools, including the design of lighting which will be functional but also look fantastic when the sun is down.
