Want to see an awesome pool and spa in a small backyard?


Pool and Spa project in Huntington Long Island. Pool is 16' x 36' in this small back yard. The was a 7' elevation change in this small yard. We pulled the pool out of the ground 16" to create a seatwall, and used large boulders and plants to hold bac the grade and soften the hard boulders. The job site was so small that we had to partially build the pool, install boulders. slide, and waterfall, and then complete the pool wall construction (see construction photos)
