Aquamarine Dream

There's one kind of callback pool builders do like to get. It's the call from customers who want you to build them another pool. Whether the clients have moved or are building their dream vacation home, you gave them just what they wanted the first time, so they turn to you to deliver just the right pool again. Such was the case with this project, which offers spectacular views of Texas Hill Country.

"This was our second project with this customer," says Mike Logsdon, president of Land Design, a design-build firm in Boerne, Texas. "So the communication was more intuitive."

In describing how he and the clients arrived at this particular poolscape, Logsdon says, "The home's three levels and Moorish influence were carried over to the project. We centered the large, rectilinear bodies of water around the spa's radius and then accented the spa's arched feel with liquid arches formed by the Tishways. And although the Tishways' primary function is to convey water, the repetition of its angled, rectilinear shape was a key element.

"Stucco walls were chosen to provide a more seamless blend with the house," adds Logsdon. "And the glass-mosaic tile on the vanishing edge was chosen for added drama." A couple of other highlights include flushmounted deck jets and a custom plaster color for the pool interior.

While this one-of-a-kind poolscape was certainly worth the wait, Logsdon said it was nearly a year in the making.
