A bird's eye view of a cool spool in a backyard

In your search for your own backyard oasis, you’ve probably happened upon dreamy photos of large, luxurious pools with built-in hydrotherapy spas on the side. When looking out over your small backyard, though, you may be thinking that you don’t have enough real estate for a pool, let alone a pool and spa. Should you settle for one or the other? With a Cool Spool from The Green Scene Landscaping & Swimming Pools, you don’t have to! 


What on earth is a “Cool Spool”? Garden Artisan, Scott Cohen and his team at The Green Scene coined the term to describe their own unique twist on the pool and spa 2-in-1 combo. But don’t let the new term fool you—their Cool Spool designs are just as luxurious and relaxing as their full-sized counterparts, and they are the perfect solution for a small backyard. 


A Spool is the Best of Both Worlds!


You can still have welcome relief from the SoCal summer heat without taking up the limited space of your backyard. And despite their compact size, Cool Spools are never lacking in style. The Green Scene team makes sure of that. With contemporary designs like vanishing edges, dramatic water features, sleek tile, and smooth concrete, your Spool is sure to be the coolest spot in the neighborhood. When paired with gorgeous outdoor lighting, a Spool will make your backyard appear even bigger than it actually is.

Plus, since Spools don’t take up as much room, you can even fit in an outdoor kitchen and gathering place with a fire trough, too. Spools provide you with more options than you thought possible in your small backyard.

Backyard transformed with a contemporary cool spool

Featured as a Project of the Month, this Cool Spool project completely transformed a cramped Porter Ranch backyard into the coolest backyard in the neighborhood! By maximizing the available space, The Green Scene team was able to provide the client with a stunning infinity edge Spool, an open concept outdoor kitchen, a seating area with unobstructed views, and a glowing fire pit.


This client absolutely loved working with The Green Scene team to design and build their dream private oasis. They also loved the Cool Spool design rendering Scott drew first on a piece of paper, then brought to life in a 3D video to assist them in making choices about their yard virtually. After The Green Scene completed the project, the client said they were, “The best landscaping team in the San Fernando Valley and beyond…or anywhere in 90210 for that matter.”
