Why we like it:

This freeform pool has a sleek stone edge that encourages you to live a little, stop dipping your toe in, and get in that water! Flagstone engulfs the circumference of this aquatic paradise’s unique shape. Yet this blueprint is given a definitive structure by the small stones that create the outer-most edge of the hardscape. The must-visit destination appeal of this backyard oasis is further accentuated by the calming waterfall placed strategically next to the raised hot tub. A cozy stone patio is separated by an island of beautiful greenery that works as a “Do not disturb” sign for the pool waders. I doubt you are still contemplating jumping in. Just go for it, will ya!

Why we like it:

Last is most definitely not least here. A gold pebble finish gives a royal look to this freeform pool. Red mulch pops in the garden, as bright yellow flowers dance around the concave edge of this hardscape. A stone walkway leads to an isolated patio where you can lay out and bask in the glory of a beautiful Denton summer. The real talking piece here though, is the long slide that flows through the ferns and into gorgeous crystal blue water. A little south-of-the border inspired fun in the great state of Texas!
