Just as you demand a high standard of finish for the construction of new house, so you need a professional approach to the landscaping that sets it off.

The owners of this country property wanted a resort-style poolscape, with a flowing, rather than hard-edged, pool design. Mayfair Pools agent Mike Lodge says templates were made of the swimming and spa pools so the handmade coping stones would match the exact radius of the pools.

"At 1m x 400mm, the coping stones are very large, so it was essential to fit the stones to the curve of the pool," he says. "The pool is 11m long, and at its widest point measures 6m."

Both the swimming and spa pools have a Paremata Sands interior and feature glazed, turquoise-green tiles along the water's edge. The spa heating is by Heat Pump and the paving is by Giacon Concrete and Terrazzo Ltd.

Other special features of the poolscape include wood decking, planter boxes, and a curved, 2m-high block wall, which provides privacy and a wind break.

Mayfair Pools specialises in custom-built fibreglass pools that can be made to any size and shape, to fit virtually any site. The company, which has been in business for more than 35 years, has a network of agents throughout the country.
