Goldfish Pools & Landscapes Project 1
Goldfish Pools & Landscapes is a Melbourne based company specialising in concrete in-ground swimming pools, spas and landscape design and construction. With more than 20 years experience, the company continues to build on their reputation for quality, integrity and service.
Having spent many years in the outdoor construction industry with time spent listening to their client’s wants and needs, Goldfish offers a collaborative approach and facilitates a one stop solution for everything outdoor. Simply put, Goldfish Pools & Landscapes provide their clients with an opportunity to have a singular point of contact for all their design, swimming pool and landscape requirements.
Most of the pools and landscape projects are designed and constructed by Goldfish Pools & Landscapes. This results in an outdoor solution where the connection between design, construction and maintenance care is clear. The company also works well in conjunction with external designers, architects and home builders.
By limiting the number of pools and landscapes constructed each year, Goldfish are able to give every detail on each and every one of their projects their full attention. The result is superior landscapes and workmanship, qualities that Goldfish clients have come to expect, at the insistence of the Goldfish team. Goldfish Pools & Landscapes are members of the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Victoria (SPASA), the Landscape Industries Association of Victoria (LIAV) and the Master Builders Association of Victoria (MBAV).
This ten by four metre pool, complete with swim-out and waterfall, converts the rear landscape into a relaxed family-orientated entertaining space. Cleverly positioned adjacent to the house, this pool and landscape can be enjoyed even when the owners are inside. The water colour is a rich sky blue thanks to the mosaic tiles, complementing the charcoal coping material, paving and surrounding timber decking.
In response to the client’s brief, the design has ample space around the pool. This allows the owners to entertain any number of family and friends, and to enjoy the many features incorporated into the landscape. The design process was made easy for the client because they could view and experience exactly what their proposed outdoor investment would look like, day and night, prior to commencement of construction through Goldfish’s 3D computer generated design tool.
The frameless glass pool fence, charcoal boundary backdrop, raised planter box bench seating and wide format ‘Merbau’ timber decking all came together onscreen and in reality. The stainless steel ‘Sheer Descent’ waterfall and thoughtful garden lighting complete the effect. The lighting also allows full use of the area during day and night.
