Inspired by refined simplicity

GOODMANORS Pool + Garden prides itself on taking jobs right through from design to construction. The emphasis placed on careful consideration of existing architectural proportions results in an holistic and individualised approach to each site. From the softscaping and plantings through to a quality execution of structural elements — retaining walls, decking, paving, lighting — attention to detail is always at the fore.

The execution of this contemporary pool and garden area demonstrates GOODMANORS’ clear intent to achieve seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces. This particular design focused on complementing both the architecture of the existing home and the owner’s interior styling.

The striking spotted gum hardwood decking extends upwards through the space as a timber staircase, cleverly utilising levels to create an upper deck overlooking the courtyard. A skilfully assembled outdoor room integrated into the design creates a relaxed and atmospheric area for entertaining. The expansive glass doors facing the pool take in a luxurious view, allowing the owners to soak up the beauty and natural aesthetic of their low-maintenance garden year-round.

This mineral magnesium pool is a marvel in its own right, with bluestone step treads on the interior that contrast beautifully against the surrounding pavers and exquisite mosaic tiles. GOODMANORS, a licensed pool builder, designed and built this pool with privacy from neighbouring properties and apartment blocks in mind. This was artfully achieved using lush foliage and sleek boundary fencing. Hurlcon JX160 gas heating and Aqua-Quip Jet-Vac cleaning systems keep pool maintenance to a minimum and ensure it always looks its best.
