Sitting Poole Side Hardscape


Start summer off right outdoors by dressing up that old pool with a new hardscape. Don’t forget the outdoor living landscaping for a shady sitting area.  It may be the best way to beat the humid NWA heat for the next few months.

Belgard Pavers

We rearranged and leveled some existing Belgard Cobblestone pavers around the pool. Polymeric sand was used between the pavers to help stop weed growth and any further movement of the pavers in the future.

Then we pulled up stepping stones leading from the pool to a side gate.  More stones and rocks were added to make the walkway look fuller. Hardscape is a great way to add a little more comfort to outdoor living. It helps keep dirt away from areas that we like to keep clean. Hardscape also makes those outdoor living areas a lot easier to clean.

Next, some native stone steps were added for easier access from the pool into the new gazebo that was built. The gazebo is equipped with electricity and an outdoor ceiling fan. NWA outdoor living just got a longer summer season. There is no need to cut the pool party short by heading into the a/c and shade now.

Outdoor Living Hardscape

gazebo and lights

This summer poolside oasis was finished off with a shady gazebo-type sitting area. It was built completely out of cedar, except for the roof. Native stone and polymeric sand were used for the floor inside the sitting area. This helps keep everything clean. Less debris gets drug into the pool, and wet feet stay clean on the easily hosed-off hardscape on the way out.

Add lights and a ceiling fan so the pool can be enjoyed 24/7 all summer.  Less heat, humidity, dirt, and flies. The guests at this pool will never want to leave as long as the drinks keep coming.
