Coastal Pool Sloping

Building a Pool on a Sloping block of Land


A simple and sophisticated pool design complements a modern home built on a sloping land

The sheer beauty of this Mount Martha location is undeniable, however with such a stunning location came a sloping and awkward site, with lots of rock excavation required to create the superb finished product. Coastal Pools & Spas rose to the challenge to design and build this gorgeous rectangular 11m-long pool boasting clean, sharp and modern lines and long seating areas that allow the homeowners to relax and look out over the glorious bay.

According to Steve Lord, the owner of Coastal Pools & Spas, the homeowners — a professional couple — requested a low-maintenance, easy-care pool design they could use anytime of the year. “We consulted with the clients and understood their requirements. The process really was plain sailing,” says Steve. “We had a good client relationship throughout.”

Coastal Pools and Spas also worked in conjunction with Cutting Landscapes, with the fencing, landscaping and plants combining in perfect harmony to complement the pool, which is surrounded by silver-grey granite paving and coping. “This project went seamlessly with the landscaper, Cutting Landscapes, due to our great relationship with them,” says Steve.

After he had spent many years in the industry, Steve Lord established Coastal Pools & Spas in 1979. At that time there was only a handful of pool builders and designers on the Mornington Peninsula, and he quickly developed a solid company and an enviable reputation
for building quality pools that met his clients’ requirements. This has continued through to the present, with the majority of the company’s projects gained through referrals from satisfied clients or repeat business. The team at Coastal Pools & Spas take pride in the quality of their designs, products and service, with friendly, knowledgeable employees working to make dreams come true.

“At Coastal Pools & Spas we handle all aspects of the pool installation — it’s a complete personal service,” says Steve. “We spend a great amount of time with our clients discussing the needs and wants for their swimming pool, family situation and future plans and growth. Once we have some parameters, we then move on to our design studio where a comprehensive 3D image is constructed. From here, our focus is on finding what will work best for our client through the use of tangible and visual samples, from materials through to the colour palette. With a complete personal service, we find this is the best way to build great relationships with our clients that last for many years.”

The team works on around 20 pools on and around the Mornington Peninsula and Melbourne’s south-east each year and specialises in building quality high-end concrete swimming pools. Coastal Pools & Spas is a member of the Master Builders Association of Victoria and SPASA Victoria.
