Weirs, wet edges, sheer descents and waterfalls they may sound like something you'd find on a bush walk, but these days they are more likely to be seen in a pool landscape.

These projects, by Frontier Pools, highlight such features and are typical of the customised swimming pools now sought after by homeowners.

Manager Neil Runciman says pools today are often an intrinsic part of the overall architecture of a house their shape, form and colour determined at the outset of an architect's planning.

For many homeowners, however, a pool is a later addition. But the current trend is still to have a pool environment that blends with the existing landscape. This may dictate a free-flowing, natural look or a more high-tech, geometric design complete with fibreoptic lighting.

Frontier Pools can build a pool to your architect's specification, or help with the design process. The company can also put you in touch with a reputable landscape designer if desired.

In addition, Frontier Pools can supply all the filtering equipment and automation you require, and provide a full service contract. The company installs Waterco Micron sand filters and energy-efficient Hydrostorm Plus pumps. There's also a range of heating systems, including Waterco gas and Zane Solar Systems.
