Plan Description

Designed primarily for exercise, a lap pool is much longer than it is wide, although it does allow two people to swim comfortably side by side. It's also shallower than pools designed for high diving. This long, narrow pool fits economically into a small backyard, because it takes up less space and costs less to build. Although intended for a healthy workout, the pool will certainly provide cooling relief from sultry summer days for all family members, not just the athletically minded. The lap pool not only serves as a recreational feature, but it also organizes the space in the landscape, acting as the main point of interest. The designer situated the pool easily within the confines of a modest-sized backyard by locating it off-center and at the focal point of a line of sight leading between two oval flowering trees and ending with a small specimen tree on the other side of the pool. The brick patio offsets the visual weight of the pool, balancing the design. The designer worked to vary the pattern and direction in the brick paving around the rectangular, hard-edged shape of the 35-by-10-foot pool to avoid an overly formal result. A path of flagstone pavers, leading from the gate to the brick terrace and from the terrace to the pool, provides easy circulation through the landscape. Swimmers can reach the pool from two doors of the house. Although the perimeter plantings ensure privacy for the swimmer, a variety of flowering shrubs and perennials creates a spring-through-fall display of flower and leaf color for all to enjoy. Even modest-sized backyards have room for a lap pool for the athletically minded and those seeking a refreshing dip. This elegant backyard plan incorporates a lovely patio and pool with a generous lawn, evergreens for privacy, and flowering trees and shrubs for spring beauty. @season:Shown in Spring Tom Nordloh
