Freeform Scene

Free-Form - Creating “The Natural Look”

A free-form” pool provides a much more relaxed and natural look. This is usually accomplished with some combination of the following:

  • Smooth flowing curves and natural shapes
  • Flagstone/natural stone deck (or stamped concrete with a natural, freeform pattern)
  • Extensive use of natural (or natural looking) boulders and rocks
  • Natural-looking waterfalls, grottos, water slides and other features
  • Natural stone coping, and/or natural rock around the waterline

A freeform look is further achieved with abundant landscaping near the water’s edge, especially with palms, ferns, and/or extensive ground cover. Darker-colored interior finishes also tend to promote a “natural lagoon” look. A beach entry is another feature that adds a certain casual look to any pool design.

We are flattered by the volume of requests for consultations we are currently receiving daily. It’s nice to be popular, but due to overwhelming demand we are currently accepting projects only in the brand-new construction neighborhoods in which we are actively working; Westcliffe Toll Brothers (Porter Ranch), Canyon Oaks & Encore Toll Brothers (Chatsworth), Hillcrest Toll Brothers (Porter Ranch), The Canyons Toll Brothers (Porter Ranch), Deerlake Ranch (Crestley and Landsea homes in Chatsworth), and Sterling Hills Pulte Homes (West Hills).

Outside of new construction, we have a “Special Projects Consultation Wait List” for clients with unique high-end projects with budgets over $200,000, that don’t mind waiting a bit for us to catch up.
