Pool Coping

Select the ideal swimming pool. The appearance of your swimming pool can be greatly improved by using coping. We offer some excellent advice as well as an overview of the numerous coping alternatives for your inground pool.

What is Pool Coping?

Coping is the material used to cap the pool edge or shell wall. Poured-in-place concrete, precast concrete, tile, and natural stone are just a few of the options (pavers, flagstone, etc.).

Coping & Concrete Pool Decks

The pool deck can be made into a single unit by using poured concrete coping. On the horizontal plane, the coping is incorporated directly over the edge of the pool, creating a seamless finish. This strategy makes a small pool perimeter appear much larger, and the pool deck area appears cleaner and more symmetrical.

Coping & Precast Concrete

Precast concrete coping is a great option because it comes in so many different textures, patterns, and colours. Installation costs are often lower than those of a poured concrete deck or natural stone. In comparison to dealing with natural stone, it is usually considerably easier to instal and gives uniformity in thickness and colour.

Coping & Natural Stone

Another coping option is natural stone or brick pavers, which add texture, warmth, and the solidity of stone. There are a variety of materials available, including granite, fieldstone, and even limestone. Allow our professionals to assist you in identifying long-term coping strategies.

Interlocking Paver Patios

These days, interlocking patios are highly popular. They offer a quick and expert decking service. Most interlocking patios are composed of cement or concrete and are designed to seem like cobblestone paths. This unique interlocking characteristic makes it possible to place pavers without the use of mortar. For the homeowner or professional, interlocking pavers have the advantage of being a simple self-installation paving material. Interlocking pavers are made of sand and can be used to cover any patio, deck, driveway, or walkway. Interlocking pavers are another option. Almost any application where bricks or concrete would ordinarily be used.

Retaining Walls

The majority of yards aren’t precisely level. In reality, just a few backyards in Austin are completely flat. In our area, most backyards have a gradient (usually 2 ft. or less). We can grade the dirt off the patio to compensate for the difference when creating your inground pool. However, not every circumstance is so straightforward. When you have a steep slope, you’ll need a skilled backyard remodeler who can think outside the box. How are you going to keep the water off the pool deck? What method will you use to maintain the pool in place?

On the low end, a retaining wall fills up any empty space and on the high end, it holds up any soil. The wall is visible in the form of steep dips. When there isn’t a significant incline, the retaining wall may appear to be nothing more than a beautiful bench—until you come around to the other side and notice that it supports the patio above the ground. Legacy Pools & Spas has the expertise and experience to install retaining walls in your garden. When getting a pool estimate from us, inquire about our building services.

Pavillions, Cabanas, & Pergolas

To create your ideal backyard lounge, we mix premium materials, professional design, and guaranteed quality. Grab a drink with friends by the pool in the evening, or simply enjoy your morning coffee. Comfortable, soft chairs, weather-resistant shades, and attractive tables are available in our cabanas. You won’t want to get out of the pool area. However, many pool owners encounter a common issue: a lack of poolside shade in which to relax and dry off after a swim.

What is the solution? A pergola or pavillion by the pool. These popular structures are simple to set up and are the ideal way to get the most out of your pool area.

Legacy Pools & Spas has been the go-to source for local homeowners wishing to improve the aesthetic of their backyard for years. Pergolas, Pavillions, Arbors, and Cabanas are just a few of the goods and outdoor amenities that our Outside Living experts may recommend to enhance the look and feel of your outdoor space.

What Are the Benefits of Having a Pergola in Your Backyard?

A pergola provides shade, comfort, and protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Hundreds of outdoor kitchens have been constructed by our outdoor living experts to blend in with the surrounding pool area. A pergola completes the design of your garden by complementing your inground swimming pool.

Water & Fire Features

You may satisfy your outdoor entertainment demands in a variety of ways with a fire element, from subterranean fire pits to conventional bespoke stone work. At Legacy Pools & Spas, we can create unique stonework to contain your fire element, whether it’s a fire bowl, table, or insert. The style of fire feature you choose represents your personality, whether you use it to barbecue food in the summer or merely to create atmosphere. Recessed fire pits are suitable for modern patios, especially if there are no children present. A stacked stone fireplace, or even a four-unit table-top pit that reflects your modern taste, is a rustic, child-friendly complement to any patio.

Water features, which can include everything from waterfalls to beautiful ponds, are a relaxing and peaceful addition to any landscape. They not only look great, but they also sound great, adding to the laid-back atmosphere. Water features can serve as a focus point and, in the case of ponds, can also attract wildlife, depending on how detailed they are. Your water feature can also serve as an art element in addition to being functional. You can get pretty complicated with a water feature that includes changing amounts of water cascading over a brick wall, covering the patio, flowing through a picturesque bridge, and emptying into a fish pond.

Outdoor Kitchens

The addition of an outdoor kitchen to an outdoor landscape design, hardscape design, or drought-tolerant landscape design is a great way to tie everything together. Outdoor kitchens serve as more than simply a place to cook; they also serve as a gathering spot for friends and family. Austin has assisted hundreds of homeowners in creating incredible, visually appealing outdoor kitchens and barbecues.

One of the best benefits of having a home is the ability to change it into a useful area that you can enjoy with friends and family. Adding a cooking and eating area to your backyard is a great way to make the most of your entire environment. You can outfit a second kitchen with everything you need to enjoy the outdoors, including outdoor barbecues, garbage cans, and televisions.
