Swimming Pools

Backyard Swimming Pools have been bringing together friends, neighbors and families for thousands of years. Most of you have wonderful childhood memories of cannon ball contests, water volleyball and diving for pennies but since that time swimming pools have come a long way.

The days of "Kidney Bean Shaped" pools with three feet of concrete apron, inefficient loud pumps and chlorine pucks have been replaced with custom waterscapes incorporating natural stone patios & lush landscaping, custom glass tile & pebble finishes, web based automation, in-floor cleaning systems and architectural details like infinity edge and perimeter overflows that boggle the mind. In fact, todays pools can be completely run from from your computer or iPhone.

The most important part of installing a custom swimming pool is proper design, engineering and elevation. When determining the placement and balance of a pool, it is important to consider other architectural, landscaping and hardscaping elements including pool houses & cabanas, patios & decks, retaining walls, fencing and plantings. If a swimming pool is designed without taking the entire area into consideration, problems can arise including the need for retaining walls and drainage systems that were not originally budgeted or planned. Additionally, Frank Bowman Designs understands the demands of homeowners associations and happily supplies the drawings necessary to submit to homeowner and neighborhood associations.

Often considered "softscape", trees, shrubs, and flowering plants, are the outdoor elements that make your house a home. Functionality is the driving force behind strong landscaping design, followed by visual appeal. Professional landscape designers will develop a customized plan based on the unique features of the client's home and outdoor space. Plants have to be chosen carefully, taking into consideration appropriate heights, desired look, color coordination, textures, bloom times, and any accompanying hardscape features.
