Grottos and Caves

Designed to look like a cave, a grotto is typically created from artificial rock and provides a sheltered cove. It is usually designed in conjunction with a waterfall or sometimes a slide, providing a sanctuary or retreat for swimmers, or a fort-like structure for kids.

Whether that's a water fall spilling over boulders, a small statue spurting a stream of water into the swimming pool, or even a vanishing edge pool that sets off a stunning view, a pool can be most impressive when it capitalizes on the effects of water.

Swimming Pool Design Ideas

Every pool should have this one element worked into its design...a water feature.

Whether that's a water fall spilling over boulders, a small statue spurting a stream of water into the pool, or even a vanishing edge pool that sets off a stunning view, a pool can be most impressive when it capitalizes on the effects of water.

To include a waterfall in your pool, look for any raised area of your pool design and examine how water could be directed to flow off of that area. Many waterfalls are created by raising the level of the spa and having the water cascade into the pool. Other waterfalls are created by installing waterfall products in openings in raised walls along the pool wall and recirculating water to spill out in sheets or through porthole-like openings.

The sound effect of your waterfall can also be specified. Some waterfall styles push water out as a single row of streams projected away from the pool wall. The rows create the sound of rain. Other waterfalls project a clear arc of water, creating a sheet-like effect. With a classical fountain or spouts inserted into pool walls, a single stream of water can be set up to give a gentle splash into the pool.
