50 of the Best Residential Natural Pools by The Master Pools Guild 1

When you’re ready for a dip in the pool, do you want something more interesting than a rectangle with a ladder at one end? Then you’ll love this sampling of 50 of the best residential “natural” pools, as highlighted by The Master Pools Guild. This collection features pools that not only break the “mold” of rectangle-with-diving board; they create an entire special world around each pool, making the pool the center of a private hideaway tucked in the midst of rock gardens and greenery — and often the jumping-off point (no pun intended) for scenic views of the area around it. Taking advantage of these settings — natural environments from which the pool seems to “spring” — are designs from such diverse places as Arizona, New Jersey, and Guatemala.

Cascading water, in multiple tiny falls that trickle over rocks and between floral plantings, is part of pools from Alabama, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Maryland, and even Toronto, Ontario (CA). Pools with mini-spas — smaller versions of a separate whirlpool — come from Florida, among other sites. On the other end of the spectrum, you can find pools that have not one, but multiple spas attached to them, as seen in one memorable Texas example…or with mini golf courses included, a feature of one Maryland pool. And for a lap pool with a difference, you can swim around center islands of concrete and greenery in a winding pool design from Nevada — Las Vegas, of course! The end result? Even if your pool is set in suburbia, if it has imaginative design like these, it can provide a “vista” of its very own…as part of a unique swimming experience.
