We are featured in the 2011 summer edition of Pools, Spas & Patios on page 54. The article is entitled “Glacial Appeal. Water and stone come together to create a backyard getaway and details a pool we designed for a family in St. Clements. The  project centered on a 18 x 34 foot Gemini steel-wall, vinyl lined inground pool and features 4 underwater lights for night-time swimming. A backlit, natural stone grotto and waterfall formed the rear pool wall, sending a continuous sheet of water cascading into the pool below.

We were featured in Pools, Spas & Patios summer 2009 for a pool we built in Wellesley Ontario with deck mounted jets, a cascading rock waterfall, arc waterfalls and a sun bench. The pool was surrounded by a concrete deck large enough to accommodate outdoor dining.

The design was completed with an armour stone retaining wall and elevated garden, fire bowls and underwater lighting.

2008 – Pools, Spas & Patios, page 19

We were featured in Pools, Spas & Patios summer 2008 edition on page 19 for a vinyl lined pool with a large rock waterfall, wooden cabana and stone patio.

The 20 x 40 foot pool sits in the midst of mature trees and bushes, adding to the sense of an austere but welcoming northern forest.  Pro Pool & Spa built the pool, waterfall feature and landscaping and worked with Manor Landscaping for the plantings, Pinehaven Sawmills for the cabana and Creative Concrete Designs for the deck.
