Kiama Landscapes & Pools
The Power of ‘One’
Kiama Landscapes and Pools bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise to the creation of your outdoor space. Our diverse skill set, incorporating pool building, design and our extensive horticultural knowledge, project management skills transform a pool and yard into a ‘Smart Lifestyle Space’.
When a landscape designer and a pool builder work alongside one another but separately, there’s a risk that they will both diverge from the original design intent, The result? A pool and landscape that don’t fit together seamlessly in the way that they would if one party was responsible for overseeing the entire project. Kiama Landscapes and Pools manage your project from start to finish ensuring a seamless transformation of your outdoor space. The ability to implement a master plan and then maintain the intent of the design through the process, from the design to construction is very important
People are more interested in their lifestyle and the lifestyle of their homes, from the inside to the outside, alfresco areas and then out to the pool. They want this holistic approach throughout the house.
This is where the pool industry can fall behind landscape designers, often, the focus is simply on building a pool, rather than creating a lifestyle for their clients.
One company working together eliminates the stress of dealing with multiple contractors and achieving the best experience for the duration of the project and in the final result,”
It’s important to remember that a Landscape Gardner brings some significant, specialised skills and knowledge to the table that other parties cannot — namely, extensive horticultural knowledge. As we all know, trees and plants can either be an asset to a poolscape or spell disaster for it.
A Great Journey
Aside from maintaining the integrity of the original design, clients are increasingly seeing the benefits and efficiency of having a single party manage the entire pool and landscape project.
The wiser client is foreseeing what decisions need to be made and getting someone like us in at an earlier stage to start to integrate that process.
By and large we’re seeing more clients now engage us from an earlier stage, wanting to incorporate a pool within the landscape. They’re seeing the value in the two going hand in hand.
But I think in general what’s by far a benefit for a client now is to engage one company and one company alone to handle all relationships, design, project management—the whole lot.!!!
